Rep. Maxine Waters, one of President Donald Trump’s harshest Congressional critics, used her platform recently to call for the actual removal of the president from office via the 25th Amendment, according to Breitbart.
The call for action from Waters came on the heels of the president’s harsh criticism of Joe Biden’s vice presidential pick, California Sen. Kamala Harris.
“This is a president that is the most deplorable human being that I have ever encountered in my life. And he’s undermining our democracy. We cannot take any more of this president. This president is not only attacking the person that was just appointed or selected by Biden to be his vice president, and he is not hesitant to do it. This man has no shame,” Waters said in her lengthy attack on the president and his treatment of Biden and Harris.
Waters also spoke about the ongoing Democrat conspiracy theory that the Trump administration is purposely wrecking the United States Postal Service in order to discourage or disrupt the November 2020 voting process, even though there is not a shred of evidence to back it.
Maxine Waters wants to use Section 4 of the 25th Amendment to oust the president as "unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office". But she's ok with a candidate who doesn't even know where he is from time to time. Now we know why they call her "Mad Maxine"!

She used the talking point as part of her reason that she believes the 25th Amendment should be invoked to remove Trump from the White House.
“As a matter of fact, when you couple that with what he’s doing, undermining our democracy, tearing up our post office, I believe that it is time for Section 4 of Amendment 25 to be put in place and his cabinet should send to Nancy Pelosi, the speaker, as identified in the Constitution, that this man should be removed from office. Section 25 should be put in place. He is dangerous,” Waters said.
Waters went on to say that she would be speaking with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi about an “injunction” in federal court against Trump in an attempt to stop “any more movements by him.”
