Since Congress is on recess, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) is making the media rounds and making sure the millennials know that she wants President Trump and, what she calls, his “Kremlin Klan” impeached.
On Monday morning, Waters appeared on “The Breakfast Club” radio show to talk about a number of topics and how Trump and his entire administration had been colluding with Russia.
“When he became president, of course, we were shocked and we were surprised, but I started right then talking about he should be impeached because not only the way that he conducted himself during the campaign, but we learned a lot about his allies and his associates who had ties to Russia and to the Ukraine and to oil,” Waters recalled. “And, so I knew that this was someone who had been involved with collusion with the Russians and undermining our democracy.”
The biggest takeaway, however, was when co-host Angela Yee asked about Vice President Mike Pence taking over, saying, “But doesn’t the vice president then become president?”
The Congresswoman responded, “Could be, and we’ll get him next.”
Throughout the 37-minute long interview, Waters was showered with praise and even addressed as “Queen Maxine,” as many millennials have nicknamed her. Waters, however, said that millennials stopped organizing when Barack Obama was elected president, so there wasn’t as much “hope and change” to go around.
“I don’t think there was enough interaction,” Waters explained. “I think that [Obama] had great potential. I think once people elected him, they simply said, ‘now, we’ve elected him, and he’ll get it done.’ And they didn’t realize that not only do you have Congress and the legislature and all of that, but they needed the same young people who got involved in the campaign to be involved in now helping to direct and organize public policy.”
