Maxine Water vs Donald Trump


Now that Trump has lost so badly the midterm elections, and the House of Representatives is about to be controlled by the Democrats, Trump is facing many nightmares. One of them is Congresswoman Maxine Waters. Trump has spent the past two years attacking her along racial lines, but now she’s about to become Chair of a powerful House committee.  (Is this an example of poetic justice?)


 Waters represent California’s 43rd District which is in Los Angeles adjacent to where one of the deadly and devastating fires in the state.  Trump has made a total mess of his response to the fires so far.  He is trying to blame victims for the fire by not raking the forests “floor”.  He repeatedly rambled incoherently about raking the forests.  He travelled to one of the most devastated cities and got its name egregiously wrong.  So, Maxine has jus about had it with Trump.


 In a lengthy statement Maxine Water posted which reads in part:

“Donald Trump’s absolutely outrageous response to the California wildfires is yet another example of his lack of knowledge, his lack of compassion, an his inability to provide the type of leadership this country deserves in the midst of a crisis.  How dare this president blame ‘gross mismanagement of the forests’ for these devastating wildfires without presenting any facts or any special knowledge?   Instead of running his mouth about things he knows nothing about, he should learn to show some empathy and sympathy for the suffering of others.”


 It is worth pointing out that as the incoming Chair of the House Financial Services Committee, Maxine Waters will be free to launch investigations into just about anything that involves federal funding.  Since Trump threatened to cut off funding for fire management, Waters can issue subpoenas and hold nationally televised hearings into Trump’s malfeasance in this matter.  Specifically, she will be able to get to the bottom of why Trump keeps shilling for this mysterious “forest management” – and who might be paying him to push this corrupt position.

 This is an excellent example of “what goes around, comes around”!
