'Auntie Maxine' Struggles to Explain What Democrats Stand For

Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) struggled Friday on MSNBC to explain what the Democratic Party stands for besides opposing President Trump.

Waters has been one of the most outspoken critics of Trump in Congress, repeatedly calling for his impeachment and insisting that if investigators "connect the dots," then his campaign's alleged collusion with Russia will become apparent.

Given Waters' public profile as a staunch Trump opponent, MSNBC host Katy Tur asked the lawmaker what Democrats actually stand for beyond opposing Trump's agenda.

"Congresswoman, what do the Democrats stand for other than being against Donald Trump?" Tur asked. "What do you stand for other than trying to get Donald Trump impeached?"

"Everyone knows that I am the ranking member of the Financial Services Committee and that I have spent many, many hours and days implementing the Dodd-Frank reforms," Waters responded.

So, basically, her answer is, "I have no clue, I just say what they tell me to say".

Yep, and she's smoking too much medical marijuana.
I hope CNN and MSNBC has her on every night. She's a RANKING DEMOCRAT! It shows people how idiotic democrats are at this point.
She hasn't had an original thought in decades.

I beg to differ, I don't think she has EVER had an original thought. This is the classic case of election by dumba** and of course it occurs in California. She is a congresswoman (and I use that term loosely) from L.A. She claims to work on Dodd/Frank, doubtful she knows or understands the concept; if she did she would know this has nothing to do with the best interests of her constituents who probably don't have two nickles to rub together and couldn't care less about financial regulation.
