Waters: After Trump, We Need To Get Pence [VIDEO]

Via Mediaite:

Congresswoman Maxine Waters has been leading the charge in the Democrats’ fantasy of impeaching and removing President Trump from office. And it would now appear as though Waters is already looking into the post-President Trump future and directing her ire at the man who would fill the void in the Oval Office, Mike Pence.

While discussing her dream of impeaching the President with the ladies of The View on Friday, host Joy Behar asked Waters, “Do you think Pence will be better than Trump?” As much as the Congresswoman clearly detests the President, she apparently has an equal level of disdain for the Vice President.

  • Truth. Given the Russian money–>GOP SuperPAC trail, there’s a good chance Ryan and McConnell also need to go down.

    • kaydenpat

      Get them all.

      • (((GC)))

        Can we somehow have the election declared invalid, and have a new one?

    • bkmn

      Don’t forget Reince (I am well aware he is not in the line of succession but that doesn’t matter, he ran the GOP)

  • Tawreos

    The lady knows her stuff!

  • kaydenpat

    Right there with you, Rep Waters. Pence needs to go the same time as Trump. Anyone associated with Trump is sleazy so hopefully Mueller will knock down all the pins at the same time.

  • PickyPecker
  • Leo

    Forget Trump. Besides Bannon Pence is the top official I truly want to go down in this affair. Trump wears his sins proudly. Pence pretends he doesn’t have any.

    His changing stories on the entire Flynn timeline alone are suspect.

  • JoeMyGod

    Remember: Agnew went first.

    • Christopher

      Sweet talker!

    • I’ve never forgotten. What’s interesting is they nailed him on money crimes dating as far back as Baltimore County Executive, a practice he kept with right up through VP.

      • If I remember correctly, he plead no-contest to a single charge on a relatively small amount from back while he was governor, but the deal accepted only on the condition he resign as vice president.

      • another_steve

        Our Maryland best, Spiro Agnew.

        Today we have a popular Republican governor.

        Pray for us.

    • another_steve

      Agnew came to the Vice President position already tarnished. We here in Maryland were delighted to get rid of that corrupt scumbag of a governor.

      Pence is the Republicans’ wet dream. A dyed-in-the-wool theofascist hater.

      They want him to replace Trump.

      • lymis

        Don’t kid yourself. Pence is already tarnished too. Look into his past – including the financial misdeed he was caught red-handed in. And it’s absolutely clear that, whether he started out participating in this Russia thing, he knowingly went along with covering it up and lying to the press and the public about it.

        • another_steve

          Pence is smooth and polished and articulate. Unlike the Sexual Predator in Chief, Pence has political skills.

          Pence as President would be much much more dangerous than Trump.

          • Hank

            Especially with Ryan and the Turtle running the Congress!

          • Craig Howell

            And those two buffoons are next in line for the White House after Pence. So why even talk about impeachment of either Trump or Pence? It’s Republicans all the way down the line of Presidential succession, at least until January 2019.

          • Kruhn

            Actually no. It’s Ryan, then Orrin Hatch as Senate President Pro-Tem, followed by Rex Tillerson, Mnuchin, General Mathis, Jefferson Beauregard Sessions, Zinke, etc.

          • Chris Baker

            I agree. Pence could at least act Presidential and Republicans in Congress would be happy with him. Remember, if Pence goes, then it’s Ryan. It’s not like a Democrat can suddenly become President. Trump is an embarrassment and a foolish acting person.

    • Daveed_WOW

      I remember it well. I was only about 7, but it was delicious watching all those mean old Republicans tumble and fumble all the way down. I didn’t know about politics, but I knew about haircuts and taste in clothing. They had to go.

  • I believe Pence is up to his eyeballs in the Russiagate stuff. When Paul Manafort left the campaign, he called Mike Pence every single day through Election Day. What did they talk about? Was Manafort a conduit for campaign info to and from th Russians? And was Pence his contact inside the campaign?

    That said, we should always be clear they impeachment talk is always about illegal, criminal activities. We should be careful not to give the misimpression that it’s about political disagreements. That Pence sees “The Handmaid’s Tale” as a utopian ideal rather than a distopian caution isn’t reason to impeach. Collusion in criminal activity is.

    • Lazycrockett

      Plus Pence knew full well that Flynn was talking to Russia ambassadors and the Kremlin.

      • Yes, good point. There should be a lot to dig into with the transition stuff.

    • Rocco

      Excellent reminder

  • AmeriCanadian

    I REALLY love this woman! I wish her the best in her efforts and wish I could help.

    • sisterfalconer

      You’re helping NOW 🙂

  • Tomcat

    She is right Pence is deplorable.

  • bkmn

    Love her and I am pretty sure we will soon see the GOP slime machine aimed at her the way they did for Pelosi in the last election cycle in Georgia.

    • Gustav2

      She is in a safe district.

      • bkmn

        That won’t stop them from sliming her.

        • Gustav2

          Yes, they will slime her in other districts to tie her to other D’s

    • Daveed_WOW

      My money’s on Maxine.

  • Tomcat

    I say DRAIN THE SWAMP. For real this time.

  • bambinoitaliano
  • DaddyRay

    Someone said it a month or so back but I agree

    I know it doesn’t work this way but if it was proven that Trump colluded with the Russians to undermine our election then what should happen is Hillary would replace Trump

    • Tomcat

      Shouda couda wouda but a screwing we will get.

    • Should, but alas won’t. The *best* we can hope for right now is President Hatch.

      • Or for the Yellowstone supervolcano to explode. Either/or.

        • cleos_mom

          A difficult choice, to be sure. I lean toward the Yellowstone scenario.

  • TJay229

    A another example of a BLACK WOMAN….being Fabulous! 😘

  • Tomcat

    Why is it women are the last to be bought by the rich fundies?
    Could it be they are more honest usually?

    • Gustav2

      Planned Parenthood, ADC etc?

    • boobert

      Honest ? Maybe some women , but certainly not the ones around chump.

    • Skeptical_Inquirer

      Because the rich fundies can’t imagine having to actually PAY women for their labor. Women to them are just supposed to lick their feet for free.

  • sisterfalconer

    Let’s not decry fantasies. “Pres. Trump” was a fantasy, too. Woman voting rights, Social Security, legal weed, marriage equality, and the first African American president were all fantasies at one time, too.

    • Tomcat

      Are you saying my fantasy of his perp walk is possible?

      • sisterfalconer

        Yes ! We got rid of Nixon. 🙂

    • zhera

      It all begins with one person not afraid to dream.

  • Tomcat

    Maxinne, you go girl.

  • JWC

    Yes start on Pence now do not wait for Trumps downfall make it a ONe Two in rapiid succession

    • Gustav2

      I’m sure Mr Mueller & Co are connecting ALL the dots.

      • Cattleya1

        From your lips to Mueller’s ears!

  • Nic Peterson

    Testify, Sister!

  • Daveed_WOW

    We need a Supreme Court with 9 of her.

    • Beagle

      5 would do, especially if Thomas, Alito, and Gorsuch were among those replaced.

  • bambinoitaliano

    Looks threatening. In case of power outage I can feel my way to the liquor cabinet. Who am I kidding? I have them all on my desk. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/4a8f6bb1b67fbc0366232e15bdf2702117cb311ba18abb50da2404ba457f79db.jpg

      Fill the ice bucket NOW !

    • zhera

      Stay safe. Keep arms inside the house and soothe the kitty.

    • PickyPecker

      I’m gonna have to bring the camera to the greenhouse to snap some shots of the shelf clouds that move in here during August storms. Beautiful, yet frightening.

  • djcoastermark

    I’m loving Maxine. She reminds me of a less crusty (but similar) version of one of the first and legendary female reporters, Dorothy Fuldhiem. She passed at 96, but was she ever a firecracker. Sometimes conservative, sometimes very liberal. Like her stance when the National Guard Kent State shootings occurred. At the time, conservatives raked her over the coals for her daring to ask” what has happened to this country when we are killing our children? ” http://www.cleveland.com/obituaries/index.ssf/2011/05/dorothy_fuldheim_tv_news_legen.html

    • worstcultever

      Thanks for reminding me of Dorothy Fuldheim – they don’t make ’em like that anymore!

      • djcoastermark

        As a kid, we weren’t allowed to watch much TV, but news shows were always okay. ( they were way different back then) The Dorothy Fuldheim show was one , as a family, we always watched. Thanks to the stars for good parents.

    • fuzzybits

      We always watched Dorothy Fuldhiem growing up. Hubby grew up in CA. so I had to enlighten him. Her,Capt. Penny,and Ghoulardi!

      • djcoastermark

        Harmupphhh. Which of the Goulardi’s are yo talking about ? The firecracker rat one ? Think carefully before you reply, lest the Kielbasa Kid come and get yous.

    • Marty Pavelka

      Cleveland Reuters here, born and raised. Thanks for the Dorothy Fuldhiem memory. She was one of a kind! Always liked her.

  • Ron

    I don’t think it’s such a fantasy Joe! Just sayin’!

    • worstcultever

      Looks like that’s Mediaite’s verbiage, not Joe’s

      • Ron

        OK Good! That didn’t sound like Joe!

  • boobert

    Aunt Maxine reminds me of someone who can dish it out ! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NTv5QphVPag

  • Dagoril

    As RuPaul would say, Can I get an AMEN??

    • Amen. Auntie Maxine can have anything she wants whenever she wants it.

  • Clive Johnson

    I like her.

  • worstcultever

    She was great in that whole discussion. I like how she can have a laugh but is really all business. No pussyfootin’ around with Maxine. And she’s 78! What a role model for old-ladies-in-training like me!

    She’s tough. She’s got bigger balls than Twittler, that’s for sure.

  • justmeeeee

    Please don’t let this nut-job become the face of any anti-Trump movement. We need sane, intelligent people.

  • coram nobis

    Trump gone, you have Pence; Pence gone, you have Ryan; Ryan gone, you have Rexxon Tillerson …

    • Daveed_WOW

      We have to remove the tumor first. Then we’ll have a few months of chemo. Then a new wonder drug and before you know it: midterms!!!

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Forget just Pence, the fact remains that the vein of treason runs deep into the bowels of the GOP…the entire administration and a good number of GOP Senators and members of Congress are equally culpable. To paraphrase Hamlet: “Something is rotten in the administration & the GOP”

  • abqdan

    So far I don’t think anything we’ve seen will convince Republicans in Congress that Trump’s misdeeds rise to the level of high crimes and misdemeanors – the standard from the Constitution for impeachment. Getting the House to approve the articles, and the Senate to vote to convict, is an incredibly difficult lift. It is important to continue the investigation, but I don’t see anything in what has been revealed so far as satifying republicans that impeachment is warranted.

  • TuuxKabin

    Amen, tia Maxine, AMEN!

  • TheManicMechanic

    Oh hells yeah. My kind of talk. Let’s keep building that momentum.

  • The Professor

    I think I’m in love.

  • Craig Collins

    Yes they got Agnew first. Wise advice. And don’t forget: it was Manafort that in a sleazy move got Pence installed as VP, not Christie.
