On Tuesday, when asked if she thinks it is irresponsible to call for President Trump’s impeachment, Democratic California Rep. Maxine Waters threw herself under the bus.
MSNBC’s Ari Melber played a 1998 clip of Rep. Waters saying that Republicans were seeking to impeach then-president Bill Clinton over political disagreements.
At the time, she said, “I am greatly disappointed in the raw, unmasked, unbridled hatred, and meanness that drives this impeachment coup d’etat. My Republican friends, what you do here today will long be remembered and recorded in history as one of the most despicable actions ever taken by the Congress of the United States of America.”
Melber went on to say that many people would make the same arguments about Waters’ current advocacy for the impeachment of President Trump.
Waters responded to the question, saying that her fellow Democrats were being “responsible” by not calling for impeachment. She also suggested that she believes her own actions are irresponsible.
She said, “I just want to tell you that the Democrats have been very very responsible and even saying to me that I should not be calling for impeachment. They have not taken a position as a Democratic caucus on this impeachment and they’ve said to me that, ‘let’s just talk about our issues, let’s not talk about him.’ So Democrats have been terribly responsible, and again, I’m one of just a few who have insisted that he’s unworthy, that he’s deplorable, that he’s despicable, and he should be impeached.”
