Maxine Waters Demands Trump is ‘Imprisoned & Placed in Solitary Confinement’
Democrat attacks her president, blasts 'Trump's filthy talk' during hysterical rant
California Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) attacked her president during a hysterical Tuesday rant, during which she demanded that Donald Trump is "imprisoned & placed in solitary confinement" over his "filthy talk."
"Mad Maxine" accused the president "using mob language" and "implying [whistleblowers] should be killed" before declaring: "Impeachment is not good enough for Trump."
Waters, who started calling for Trump's impeachment shortly after his inauguration, vented her anti-Trump frustrations in a frenzied tweet, saying:
"He needs to be imprisoned & placed in solitary confinement. But for now, impeachment is the imperative."
I'm calling on the GOP to stop Trump's filthy talk of whistleblowers being spies & using mob language implying they should be killed. Impeachment is not good enough for Trump. He needs to be imprisoned & placed in solitary confinement. But for now, impeachment is the imperative.— Maxine Waters (@RepMaxineWaters) October 1, 2019
In the wake of the controversy over a whistleblower from the intelligence community's report about a late July phone call between the U.S. president and the president of Ukraine, Trump has been the subject of emboldened calls for his impeachment from Democrats.
Amid the controversy and following the impeachment push from House Democrats last week, President Trump remarked that those who fed the information to the whistleblower were "close to a spy."
He added: "You know what we used to do in the old days, when we were smart, right? The spies and treason?
"We used to handle it a little differently than we do now."
In a Monday tweet, President Trump publicly asked if House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) should be arrested for treason for giving a "FAKE & terrible" version of the Ukraine phone call during a congressional hearing last week.
On Tuesday, he tweeted about Schiff again, asking why Schiff isn't "being brought up on charges for fraudulently making up a statement and reading it to Congress as if this statement, which was very dishonest and bad for me, was directly made by the President of the United States?"
Schiff has defended his fictionalized version of the call transcript by saying it "was meant to be, at least part, in parody."
In August last year, while campaigning ahead of the Midterms, President Trump slammed Maxine Waters as a “seriously low IQ person” during a rally in Ohio.
"They're talking about this 'blue wave'," Trump told the huge crowd.
"I don't think so," he added.
"And Maxine Waters is leading the charge.
"She's a real beauty, Maxine.
"A seriously low IQ person."
Trump's campaign shredding followed his similar comments in June last year, when he took to Twitter to respond to Waters' call to harass Trump administration officials in public.
The president called the California representative "an extraordinarily low IQ person."
"Congresswoman Maxine Waters, an extraordinarily low IQ person, has become, together with Nancy Pelosi, the Face of the Democrat Party," Trump tweeted.
"She has just called for harm to supporters, of which there are many, of the Make America Great Again movement. Be careful what you wish for Max!"

"You have members of your Cabinet that have been booed out of restaurants, who have protesters taking up at their house who say, 'No peace, no sleep,'" Waters said at a rally, adding, "God is on our side."
She later said: "If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they're not welcome anymore, anywhere."
