Video: Maxine Waters claims she is on impeachment mission from God

Donald Trump’s tenure as commander in chief has been characterized by unprecedented levels of hysteria from the left — and after a recent appearance by Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), it doesn’t look like that will be changing any time soon.

In a fiery speech at First AME church in Los Angeles, the California congresswoman affectionately known to supporters as “Auntie Maxine” claimed that God has sent her to fulfill the mission of impeaching the president.

Addressing an enthusiastic crowd of supporters, Waters pledged that she had every intention of tackling the job God had apparently dispatched her to complete, further asserting, “When God sends you to do something, you just do it!” Take a look at her full speech:

“I don’t respect this president”

The extraordinarily contentious discourse between Waters and Trump is nothing new.

Waters previously promised to “fight every day until [Trump] is impeached,” and even adamantly refused to attend Trump’s inauguration.

“I don’t honor this president, I don’t respect this president,” Waters said ahead of the inauguration ceremony. “And I’m not joyful in the presence of this president.”

The representative from California was also unrestrained in her recent condemnation of the Trump administration’s previous policy of temporarily separating children from their illegal immigrant parents at the border, writing on Twitter earlier this month:

But Waters herself has not been immune from criticism, even from members of her own party, for appearing to incite violence against those who disagree with leftist points of view. Just last month, she exhorted supporters in attendance at a rally to directly confront members of Trump’s Cabinet whenever they are seen in public places such as department stores, restaurants, and the like.

Seemingly advocating for physical intimidation tactics, Waters even encouraged supporters to “create a crowd and you push back on them and you tell them they are not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

“Be careful what you wish for”

In response, President Trump upped the ante in the ongoing war of words with Waters, publicly calling her intelligence into question and deeming her brand of aggression a new hallmark of her party in a tweet on Thursday.

Even Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) felt the need to distance themselves from the controversial comments:

Still, the attacks from Waters are unlikely to subside anytime soon, with the Democrat firebrand frequently boasting of her fortitude in the face of challenge. Clapping back against those she believes are intent on censuring her or expelling her from Congress, Waters informed detractors earlier this summer: “If you shoot me you better shoot straight. There’s nothing like a wounded animal.”
