In the latest sign of her continuing slip into sheer insanity, Maxine Waters once again leaves no doubt in anyone’s mind that she’s absolutely off the deep end.
Waters already has an insane obsession about Donald Trump and the Kremlin, but on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” she actually made the claim that Trump used talking points he got from Vladimir Putin. From the Washington Free Beacon:
“I really do believe that much of what you saw coming out of Trump’s mouth was a play from [Russian President Vladimir] Putin’s playbook,” Waters said.
She said campaign rhetoric like chants of “lock her up,” targeted at Hillary Clinton, were “developed strategically with people from the Kremlin, with Putin.”
“So you think the Russian government developed the talking points for the Trump campaign?” Stein asked.
“I think that there was a cooperation in developing strategy about how they could ensure that Hillary Clinton was not elected,” Waters responded.
She was discussing Trump-Russia “collusion” with Huffington Post’s Sam Stein, and how the man kept a straight face during that conversation is anyone’s guess. She also admitted there is no actual evidence of collusion, but she believes it’ll somehow come out during the investigation.
Waters and other Democrats like her still actually believe the reason Hillary Clinton lost is because Trump’s campaign colluded with Russians. They really can’t bear to believe they lost because their policies, behavior, and ideology were repudiated by a majority of Americans other than the left-wingers on the East and West coasts.
