Maxine Waters Predicts Trump Will Lose GOP Support Amid Mounting Scandal

As scandals continue to mount against Donald Trump, the veteran congressional leader tells Roland Martin that party leaders will have to eventually break ties with the president.

Congresswoman Maxine Waters has been one of the leading lawmakers to criticize President Donald Trump‘s actions since he took office in late-January. In a simulcast conversation with Roland Martin and NewsOne Now and the Tom Joyner Morning Show, Waters predicted that the Republican Party won’t be able to support the former business mogul for much longer.

Rep. Waters continued her usual stance in pointing out the fallacies of the Trump administration, but it was her suggestion that the GOP will stand aside as it appears Trump’s presidency is heading in a negative direction.

“The Congress has not done its job. We have been derelict in our duties, and mostly because the Republicans are in charge, and we don’t have charge of the committee. We’re supposed to be a checks and balance democracy, agencies in government are balanced by each other and checked by each other,” Waters said.

Martin mentioned a CBS News tweet about 20 GOP lawmakers refusing to appear on the network’s morning program to discuss Trump’s troubles, prompting Waters to say, “the next couple of weeks is going to tell us a lot about whether or not these Republicans are gonna get the guts to do what they have to do and move towards tying down these investigations so that we can connect the dots in ways are irrefutable.”

Watch Roland Martin’s discussion with Congresswoman Maxine Waters on NewsOne Now in the clip above.

These issues aren’t poll testing and focus grouping like the Democrats thought they would. Look for them to hush her up in the near future.

“Mad Max” needs psychiatric confinement and, if modern medical science has an applicable miracle, treatment

she spews forth Other-Universe hallucinations on a daily basis

My wife ordered flowers for a couple of people recently and then the company sent her a reminder of her father’s upcoming birthday. Problem is, she never told them who her father is. They do know stuff about you.

The dems are going to come out looking stupid from this. I mean, moreso than usual.

Anyone see the interview with Pelosi? The one where she was very cautionary about screaming impeachment, saying you needed evidence, or something to justify it?

When Pelosi is the reasonable one, trying to slow things down, you know crap has jumped off the railroad tracks.

Six months of accusations and not shred of evidence, not even a minuscule, microscopic, atom like, bit of actually evidence.

Maxine Waters is wrong – we’re digging in out here in flyover and lots of millennials are joining our side. They get that Trump’s fighting for jobs for them…

Never thought we’d get the young people but we are…

Do you suppose the DNC assigned her the job of coming out every day, to say something profoundly stupid about Trump? Or she has just taken this on herself?

A bold prediction of my own. If she’s not done so already, Maxine will soon lose the rest of her pea-sized mind. Just what, who, and how is she ‘leading’? And as to “lawmaker” – pshaw! WTP find there are no laws in this nation enforced the past 8 plus years by those same “lawmakers” Pitiful!
