‘We Can Chew Gum at the Same Time’: Maxine Waters Claims Trump Impeachment Wouldn’t Be Disruptive

While some Democrats are avoiding talk about possibly impeaching President Donald Trump, others are pushing to go forward, claiming it wouldn’t distract from important issues.

In a recent interview with MSNBC, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) discussed the possibility of impeachment.

“The president is a criminal. The president worked with Cohen, instructed him to go and pay these women to be quiet, to shut them up,” Waters said. “The president was not just simply complicit in all of this, he is the one that initiated this with his attorney. This criminal must be brought up by the Congress of the United States for impeachment. And if we don’t do it, we’re derelict in our duty.”

While Trump has not been convicted of any crimes related to the payments, Waters is already acting as if the president is a convicted criminal.

Waters also criticized some critics saying that the impeachment proceedings would distract from important issues.

“There are some who say that it would be too disruptive, we’ve got too many other things to do. I have said over and over again we can walk and we can chew gum at the same time,” the California Democrat said, who will likely be the next chair of the House Financial Services Committee. “[…] We cannot continue with the president who lies.”

The representative gave examples of issues that happened before Trump was in office, and she did not give any criminal reasons to move forward with impeachment. Waters has a history of going after Trump and his supporters, and it seems like their feud may be rekindled due to her comments.

And the cowboy woman can live in a multimillion dollar mansion (not in her district) and represent an area where people wish they had even one tenth of a percent of her wealth!

No matter who is running the Oval Office, impeaching the president would cause a major disruption. That doesn’t mean there would never be a justification for doing so, but to act like it wouldn’t impact the country is foolish.

mad max has ONE agenda, and ONE agenda ONLY: Impeach Trump. She doesn’t care what means need to be used, just impeach Trump.

Mad Max is at it again. Am I the only one that sees her mouth moving but nothing of value comes out?

No… no you can’t. And this would be a lot more complex than chewing gum.

Additionally, hold your smug chatter about impeachment until the investigation is complete. Otherwise you’ll just look stupid if it comes back and there is nothing on the president directly.
