WATCH: Maxine Waters Says Gang Members Have ‘More Integrity’ Than Trump (VIDEO)
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), a strident critic of Trump and a national treasure, recognizes the stage 5 cancer we have in the White House and refuses to play nice. Appearing on Showtime’s Desus & Mero, the fiery congresswoman called Trump a “street player” and compared him unfavorably to Los Angeles gang members.
“This guy is a street player,” Waters said on Thursday’s episode. “He’s a guy that has conned folks. He’s flirted with gangsters.”

Gangsters might be more competent and actually experienced hardship, however. Rep. Waters, having personally met and dealt with notorious gangs in her state of California, delivered even more epic truth bombs:
“I have worked in some of the toughest communities. I’ve worked with gangs, I’ve worked with Crips, I’ve worked with Bloods. And there’s more integrity in many of these young people in the hood than this man has, she continued. This is a flawed character, and I’ve never seen anything like this, Waters added.”
Well, alright, alright, alright.
Waters, seemingly never missing an opportunity to call out this wannabe dictator, appears to have blasted Trump over using Attorney General William Barr as his personal lapdog lawyer after goading him into lowering the sentence for his longtime associate Roger Stone
Trump using AG Barr to get his criminal friends out of jail is the tip of the iceberg. I’ll say it again: Trump will pardon Flynn, Manafort, & Stone b/c the GOP cowards in the Sen bowed to his feet. Repubs now stand for crime, corruption, autocracy, & Russia! They are PATHETIC!

On Thursday, Stone was sentenced to more than three years in prison for witness tampering and lying to Congress.
And like most frustrated and frightened Americans, Waters has qualms over what 2020 Democratic Presidential Candidate can beat Trump:
“I think now it boils down to all of us wanting someone that we feel comfortable can really beat Trump. This country cannot tolerate another four years of him,” she said. I have not endorsed anybody, and I’m going to wait until after South Carolina.”
