On Tuesday, President Trump decided it was a good time to have a little fun at the expense of Maxine Waters, who has been going off the rails ever since he was sworn into office, but has really been on the warpath over his enforcement of immigration policies currently on the books in America.
Trump resorted to his classic trolling persona by stating that he actually wants to hear more from Waters, not less, noting her wackiness is going to cause folks to jettison from the Democratic Party, a move that can only be positive for the president and the GOP given the midterm elections coming up later this year.
Waters has landed herself even more squarely in the center of Trump’s trolling sights after she infamously called for more personal harassment of Trump Cabinet members last week. “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,” Waters told supporters at a toy drive. After strong condemnation from a number of her colleagues, Waters lashed out at the Democratic leadership Sunday, saying, “leadership will do anything that they think is necessary to protect their leadership.”Advertisement - story continues below
But Trump said in an early morning tweet on Tuesday that he wants to hear more from Waters, not less.
“Crazy Maxine Waters, said by some to be one of the most corrupt people in politics, is rapidly becoming, together with Nancy Pelosi, the FACE of the Democrat Party,” he wrote. “Her ranting and raving, even referring to herself as a wounded animal, will make people flee the Democrats!”
Trump also took a moment on Tuesday to slam the “fake news media” again, in a tweet that turned out to have a perfectly ironic typo.Advertisement - story continues below
“After having written many best selling books, and somewhat priding myself on my ability to write, it should be noted that the Fake News constantly likes to pour [sic] over my tweets looking for a mistake,” Trump tweeted. “I capitalize certain words only for emphasis, not b/c they should be capitalized!”
One of the many things folks tend to love about President Trump is that he isn’t afraid to do things he knows gets under the skin of the left, which is exactly what he’s doing with Waters. He knows this is the way to keep them off balance, to engage in personal insults and thus neglect engaging issues with any sort of real substance.
This serves to make them look bad, while boosting Trump and other GOP members in the sight of the general public. It’s actually pretty genius.
