A video recently surfaced of California Rep. Maxine Waters joking about “taking [President Donald Trump] out.”
Waters, speaking at a gala for the “Ali Forney Center,” said, “Wow, what a moving evening this is. I’m sitting here listening, watching, absorbing, thinking about Ali even though I never met him. And with this kind of inspiration, I will go and take Trump out tonight.”
She reportedly made these comments on October 13, and video has only surfaced online now.
Waters has made a name for herself since Trump’s election by being outspoken about him and his presidency, and she’s repeatedly pushed for his impeachment.
In August, she was asked about the possibility of forming an all-black political party, and she didn’t rule it out altogether, saying that African-Americans should stay in the Democratic Party for now, but perhaps make their own party when they “are strong enough to talk about organizing another party.”
