California Congresswoman Maxine Waters has incurred the wrath of President Trump supporters. The fiery 78-year-old Democrat was heckled by several protesters at a town hall meeting in Inglewood, Calif. on Saturday.
Waters’ popularity has surged among left-leaning celebrities and Hillary Clinton supporters.
The protesters were escorted out of the meeting by police officers, while more protesters picketed outside Inglewood high school where the town hall meeting was held.
Waters, who for months has called for Trump’s impeachment, is now under threat of Impeachment herself, thanks to her anti-Trump stance.
Pro-Trump supporters are calling for Waters to be impeached amid allegations that she paid her daughter, Karen Waters, $750,000 out of taxpayer funds to mail campaign flyers.
In 2010, the House Ethics Committee investigated Waters for steering $12 million in bailout funds to a bank where her husband sat on the board and held stock.
Artwork featuring Waters’ face under the words “POVERTY PIMP” and “IMPEACH MAXINE WATERS” are popping up on bus benches and a pole outside Waters’ $4.8 million mansion in upscale Hancock Park — which is worlds away from the poverty-stricken district she represents.
Her indigent constituents wonder aloud how she can afford the lavish, nearly $5 million house.
One poster outside Inglewood high school bears Waters’ face superimposed over James Brown’s mugshot. “Race baiter, old & out of touch, poverty pimp,” the poster reads.
The same artwork was plastered all over Los Angeles 3 years ago.
The posters are for sale on the artist’s Facebook page.
