Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) raised some eyebrows after she took to Twitter to claim that her account had been hacked and “erased.”
On Tuesday, Waters wrote, “I have been hacked and my Twitter account has been erased.”
“I know who has done this. I will take care of this. M Waters,” she added.
I have been hacked and my Twitter account has been erased. I know who has done this. I will take care of this. M Waters.

Maxine Waters is always putting up stiff competition vs Marie Hirono for dumbest member of the legislative branch. I still think Marie edges her out by a hair. https://t.co/0PNuKEo02x

Meanwhile, Politico’s Sam Stein tweeted, “[T]he account is definitely not erased. But i’m here for the Maxine Waters twitter revenge tour.”
As Fox News noted, Waters’ account still had a tweet from 2017 pinned to the top of her feed.
