California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters celebrated Martin Luther King Jr Day by claiming the civil rights leader would have encouraged people to march for the impeachment of President Trump.

“If MLK was alive today, he’d be marching not only for civil rights & protecting voting rights, but to urge Members of Congress to accept their responsibility to save the U.S. from a dangerous man who has no respect for our Constitution & no concern for strengthening our democracy,” Waters wrote on Twitter on Monday.

“Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. would have encouraged every responsible human being to march for justice, to march for peace, and most of all, to march for the impeachment of Donald Trump,” she wrote in another tweet. The Democratic congresswoman has made a name for herself by demanding Trump’s impeachment since before he even took office.

Other Democrats similarly politicized the national holiday. Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren called Trump an “openly racist president” while speaking at a breakfast celebrating MLK day. (RELATED: Watch President Trump’s Martin Luther King Day Message [VIDEO])
