Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., is known for her “meltdowns,” with Google turning up 121,000 references.
The fact that she just had another one isn’t startling. What’s new is that she is urging Americans not to watch President Trump’s State of the Union address.
“I don’t even know why he wants to come and give the State of the Union. The State of the Union under him as not been good,” Waterfs said. “And he has been divisive. And I think he’s putting us all in harm’s way. And so he’s not worthy of being listened to.
Waters said she didn’t “know why anybody would want to pay attention to anything he has to say.”
“He lies over and over like I said. Six thousand lies have been documented since he’s been there,” she said. “I just can’t imagine what he’s gonna try and say but since he is a great liar, he’ll say anything because he’s capable of saying anything without facts, without research. So I’m not looking forward to his State of the Union and I hope that people would turn the television off.”

She did not document any of the “lies” by Trump and cited no facts to back up her opposition to everything the president says.
The congresswoman was not the only Democrat to go off on the president’s speech before it was given.
Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York blasted the president for dividing the nation.
He reports Waters has a long history with the Communist Party USA.
She also has ties to some Communist Workers Party and Workers World Party fronts and has employed staff members from Democratic Socialists of America and League of Revolutionary Struggle.
WND reported last year when a journalist filed a complaint with U.S. Capitol Police against Waters for allegedly assaulting her.
It was journalist Laura Loomer who was doing to Waters what “the California Democrat urged liberals to do to Trump aides: Confront them in public.”
“I filed a police report w/Capitol Police against Maxine Waters. Yesterday when I confronted her on Capitol Hill, she ASSAULTED me. She hit my hand, then she swatted me in the face twice w/her papers. I’m pressing charges,” Loomer tweeted.
Waters previously has ranted in nearly every speech to “impeach” Trump and claims God is on her side.
She has told her followers to “show up” wherever someone from the Trump administration appears and get them “booed out of restaurants,” promising “no sleep.”
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said at the time it’s “urgent that the House ethics (committee) quickly act to hold her accountable for this dangerous incitement.”
Veteran political adviser and longtime columnist Pat Buchanan warned that such inflammatory rhetoric can prompt violence.
He noted White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked to leave a restaurant. And Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and White House aide Steven Miller were heckled while dining in D.C.
Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi was confronted by protesters at a movie theater.
The sentiment turned violent – but fortunately not fatal – when James Hodgkinson, a 66-year-old volunteer in Bernie Sanders’ campaign, opened fire on GOP lawmakers practicing for their annual baseball game with the Democrats, Buchanan noted.
“House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was wounded, almost mortally. Had it not been for Scalise’s security detail, Hodgkinson might have carried out a mass atrocity,” he said.
“The left, to the point of irrationality, despises a triumphant Trumpian right and believes that to equate it with fascists is not only legitimate, but a sign that the accusers are the real moral, righteous and courageous dissenters in these terrible times,” he said.
It has happened before, he pointed out.
“After Dr. King’s assassination, a hundred cities, including the capital, were looted and burned. Scores died. U.S. troops and the National Guard were called out to restore order. Soldiers returning from Vietnam were spat upon. Cops were gunned down by urban terrorists. Bombings and bomb attempts were everyday occurrences. Campuses were closed down. In May 1971, tens of thousands of radicals went on a rampage to shut down D.C.,” he said.
Waters’ extremism even attracted the attention last year of then-House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi.
She rebuked Waters for calling for more harassment of Trump administration officials in public spaces in response to the Republican administration’s immigration policies.
“In the crucial months ahead, we must strive to make America beautiful again,” Pelosi tweeted, referencing Waters remarks Saturday. “Trump’s daily lack of civility has provoked responses that are predictable but unacceptable. As we go forward, we must conduct elections in a way that achieves unity from sea to shining sea.”
“I resent the remark about making American great again,” she shouted on the floor of the U.S. House.
Her rant erupted as the House reviewed a proposal addressing requirements for automobile dealers, after Pennsylvania Rep. Mike Kelly suggested the country needed to shift focus from what divides Americans to what unites them.

Waters also has promised she “will ‘take out’ the president.”
