Rep. Maxine Waters Leads ‘Impeach 45’ Chant, Keeps Town Hall Protesters Out
Representative Maxine Waters is leading an army of upset dems, but they aren’t getting very far.
Recently, a local Town Hall meeting saw a large presence of protesters, all there for Democratic Representative Maxine Waters. Unable to get inside the meeting, they chanted “Let us in!”
Some time into the meeting, Waters rose from her seat and gathered her supporters. She led them inside as they chanted “Impeach 45!” The crowd was calling for the removal of our 45th President, Donald Trump. The crowd drew one lone challenger, a woman holding a sign that read “Impeach Mad Max.”
A group of pro-Trump protesters grew outside the door as many ticket holders to the event were turned away if they did not reside within the district. Demand was too high for the meeting. District residents were given priority. Breitbart elaborates:
As the event commenced, Waters’s voice could be heard through speakers projected outside for the overflow crowd to hear. The video shows chants of “kick her out.”
One critic, a woman Chanell Temple, spoke of troubles finding work after losing her job, attributing some of her struggle in finding work to not being able to speak Spanish, according to the Times.
Temple made national news in August 2015 when she spoke out at a Huntington Park City Council meeting where she and others challenged the appointment of two illegal aliens to city commissions. Video of her comments went viral. She identified herself as someone raised in the Huntington Park area. During the meeting, she attested to inequality between the treatment of her black community as compared to treatment of illegal aliens.
In the video, audio of Waters can be heard through protesters as she said, “This administration, we’re going to embarrass them, we’re going to leverage everything that we have.”
The Times reported that Waters’s message revolved around the Senate GOP health care bill. She also specifically criticized members of President Donald Trump’s cabinet, including Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, and Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson. Waters went so far as to slam Carson, vowing that she would “take him apart” in front of the House Financial Services Committee.
