During his long-winded speech at a campaign rally in Pennsylvania Saturday night, President Trump made a very big mistake: He criticized California Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D).
Trump told the crowd:
“And Maxine Waters, a very low IQ individual. You ever see her? ‘We will impeach him. We will impeach the president’. But he hasn’t done anything wrong. ‘It doesn’t matter, we will impeach him.’ She’s a low I.Q. individual. You can’t help it. She really is. ‘We will impeach him.’ But you have Maxine Waters and you have plenty of others.”
Here’s the video from the rally:

Appearing on AM Joy Sunday morning, Waters wasted no time retaliating against Trump, telling host Joy Reid:
“He’s an expert at name-calling. I understand that in addition to continuing his name-calling of me… calling me low I.Q…. that he continued to attack Elizabeth Warren, and Nancy Pelosi, maybe made some reference to Oprah Winfrey… on and on and on…
“And it seems that he’s identifying and picking up more and more women that he’s attacking. Again, I expected this… this is what this conman does. He diverts attention from himself by attacking others. But this business about Stormy is not gonna go away.”
Stormy, of course, being Stormy Daniels, the porn star who alleges she had an affair with Trump in 2006. Trump later had his personal attorney, Michael Cohen, pay Daniels $130,000 in hush money so she wouldn’t talk to the media.
But Waters saved her best comments regarding the president for the end of her call, commenting:
“He can call us all the names that he wants to call us, but our special counsel, Mueller, is connecting the dots… if for some reason Mueller does not get him, Stormy will. I’m not gonna run from it. I’m not intimidated by him. He can keep calling names—I’ve got plenty for him. Everybody knows he’s a conman, he’s been a conman all of his life… ‘Conman Don’ is gonna keep it up, and again, he comes for me, I’m coming for him.”
If Democrats do indeed retake control of the House of Representatives after the November midterm election, Maxine Waters is going to become Trump’s worst nightmare.
