Gotta hand it to Maxine Waters, the California Congresswoman has never met a Republican she didn’t hate or a corrupt liberal movement she didn’t love, but that doesn’t stop her from spewing her venom in public. Ms. Waters has been feasting on her hatred of Donald Trump ever since he won the election, saying she would never meet with or work with the new president, and going even further calling for his impeachment. In her latest tirade, Maxine Waters spews that President Trump cannot be trusted, an ironic angle for a woman who has enriched her family on the public dime.
In a tweet issued Friday, Maxine Waters, the California Democrat obsessed with Trump-Russia conspiracy theories and impeachment, declared on Twitter that First Lady Melania Trump can’t trust her husband. Many who read her tweets, threw her claim right back at her.
“Democrats can’t trust Trump, Republicans can’t trust Trump, and Melania can’t trust Trump,” she said, offering no proof for her unhinged claim.
Democrats can’t trust Trump, Republicans can’t trust Trump, and Melania can’t trust Trump

According to Breitbart:
Waters, a frequent critic of Trump, ramped up her attacks on the president following his meeting with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to discuss the potential legalization of DACA recipients and improvements in border security.
Waters did not elaborate on her attack of the First Lady but could have been alluding to a Vanity Fair piece that tried to paint Melania as someone who is unhappy with the increased amount of scrutiny her marriage is getting now that Trump is president.
Waters also attacked Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Facebook in her Friday tweetstorm. The California Democrat took aim at Sessions, referencing reports that Trump humiliated the attorney general after Sessions recused himself from the investigation into the Trump campaign’s alleged collusion with Russia. She also accused Sessions of being a racist:
To Jeff Sessions, how does it feel to be dragged & humiliated? Now you know how the African Americans you disrespected feel

Naturally, Waters’ insane base supported her assertion, but others weren’t impressed:
Right, corrupt waters. And democrats shouldn’t trust you. Zip it, hypocrite.

You’re attempts at being clever are worn out and predictable. Then again, your Marxist ideology frowns on individual innovation, doesn’t it?

Breitbart also reported that Waters accused Facebook of treason:
One person asked:
You should know, you have invested $$ in Russiahttps://t.co/VDvXvF55mC

Another person asked:
How much money have you taken so far?

Another good question. After all, Ms. Waters and her family has been with the hands in the cookie jar more than once:
The Washington Free Beacon is reporting that Karen Waters has been paid over $600K by her mother since 2006, the bulk of that money coming from campaign dollars.
The daughter of Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) was paid nearly $70,000 by her mother’s campaign during the 2016 election cycle.
Karen Waters has been on the payroll of her mother’s campaign committee, Citizens for Waters, since 2006. She has pulled in more than $600,000 for her services since that time…
Karen pulled in $65,287 overseeing the slate mailer operation in 2016, making her the third-largest recipient of Waters campaign funds that cycle. Karen, together with her firm Progressive Connections, has received over $600,000 in payments from the Waters campaign since 2006.
In 2010 Waters was accused of helping an unsound bank (OneUnited) receive government aid to help her husband who was an officer and stock-owner of the bank. She avoided any problems by throwing her grandson under the bus.
OneUnited was financially reeling from the federal government’s takeover of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, both of which had their shares wiped out by the government action. OneUnited owned substantial shares in the two mortgage giants, Frank said….
..But OneUnited was also facing regulatory scrutiny last fall from other government agencies, which later slapped a cease-and-desist order on OneUnited due to “unsafe and unsound banking practices.”
Regulators also complained of “excessive” executive pay at OneUnited – including a Porsche for use by CEO Kevin Cohee….
The evidence against Ms. Waters includes series of emails from Waters’ Grandson and Chief of Staff, Mikael Moore and members of the House Financial Services Committee:
The e-mails show that Mr. Moore was actively engaged in discussing with committee members details of a bank bailout bill apparently after Ms. Waters agreed to refrain from advocating on the bank’s behalf. The bailout bill had provisions that ultimately benefited OneUnited, a minority-owned bank in which her husband, Sidney Williams, owned about $350,000 in shares.
In the end, Maxine Waters avoided the ethics charges by getting her Grandson and Chief of Staff, Mikael Moore to take the fall. Grandchild Moore got off with a “letter of reproval.” Waters got off despite the fact that she requested the bank bailout money for a bank where her husband owned stock and had served on the board of directors.” At the time she requested the help, Waters neglected to tell Treasury officials about her financial ties to OneUnited Bank. I bet her grandson got a nice gift for Christmas that year.
Now tell me, who shall we trust?
