The age of American political decorum has seemingly escaped us, hopefully only momentarily…but I wouldn’t hold my breath.
We are witnessing a radicalization of the political doctrines of this country, with the left turning hard left, practically veering into oncoming traffic to do so, while conservative remain anchor to their long-held beliefs.
While the left pulls incessantly, those with two hands on the figurative rope are no longer pulling steadily, attempting to slowly win over the undecided American. No; they are jerking wildly, snatching a the interwoven threads of a diverse and free society. They are practically thrashing, like an alligator in a death roll – both in visceral filth and the creeping doom of an undeniable decline.
One such savagely salacious persona on the left is Congresswoman Maxine Waters, who famously urged a group of supporters on the street to form mobs and make conservatives feel “unwelcome” wherever they may be.
Just days later, several women from within the Trump administration were verbally assaulted in public restaurants.
Now, Mad Max has another suggestion for the behavior of her constituents, and it’s equally as absurd, but thankfully less dangerous.
Maxine Waters doesn’t want to hear what Donald Trump has to say tonight.Advertisement - story continues below
The California congresswoman melted down when asked if she would be listening to Trump’s second State of the Union address this evening.
Waters was practically sprinting to get her “resistance” schtick and keywords out into this reporter’s microphone.

Of course, we all know that Maxine Waters will assuredly be watching the State of The Union, likely surrounded by her political PR team. They’ll spend something like 12 minutes drafting a response for Twitter, and all of this caterwauling to Essence Magazine will be for naught.
Let’s just be thankful that Waters didn’t invoke the same violent imagery that she has in the past.
