She’ll be 82 then, but that’s far and away the least of her problems.

Just when you thought things couldn’t get any crazier inside the Beltway, Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) is dropping strong hints that she may be throwing her hat in the ring.

That’s right, crazy Maxine, the woman who puts cuckoo in cuckoo clock, the representative who proves daily that stupid and nasty is the worst possible combination for a human being may be running for president in 2020.

I know what you are thinking: I am posting this only because George Romero died, and America needs something to replace the giant of horror films, but that’s not my rationale. This is a real story.

Ever since Hillary Clinton campaign went up in flames in 2016, the Democrats have been in a state of confusion. Their only policy has been to attack each and every breath taken by President Trump. And don’t forget that they believe that it was the Russians who made her run an arrogant campaign, while ignoring the key Midwest states. The DNC would probably tell you that Clinton’s loss had nothing to do with the fact that Americans were looking for a change candidate who would shake up things in D.C.

Now, as the Democrats are left desperate and scrambling, the notion that they are already preparing for 2020 goes to show you that the party needs something to look forward to. We’ve already heard some names floated, such as perennials Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and even California’s brand spanking new senator who lives to protect Planned Parenthood Kamala Harris. And now a new face (well, not that new) has emerged. Stay woke!

Kyle Olson at The American Mirror writes:

Speculation is increasing as it’s revealed the California congresswoman and darling of Trump haters nationwide will be making an appearance in the early presidential primary state of New Hampshire on Sunday.

‘According to an invitation, obtained by WMUR from Democratic sources, Waters will be in the state on July 23 for the picnic to be held at the Miller Farm in New Durham,’ WMUR reports, where she will hobnob with the Strafford County Democratic Committee.

President Trump has been a favorite punching bag for Waters, who seems to spin a new conspiracy theory about his administration and aides every few days.

Waters has been intentionally antagonistic towards the president’s supporters, as well.

While many Democrats align with the “resistance” in order to appeal to their millennial constituents, Waters has adopted the “screech and screech some louder” approach.

Waters’s one-woman crusade against Donald Trump has gained volume over time but remains woefully short on substance. As Joe Newby writes at Conservative Firing Line, Waters claimed on Wednesday in an interview published at the New York Times that President Trump should have been convicted of a crime “numerous times” but was hard-pressed to name a crime that he committed.

Earlier this month, she carelessly tweeted that “only a weak and impotent leader would spend more time attacking his predecessor than those in the world truly threatening U.S.,” inviting her own critics to remind her of another president of whom that very criticism could be made.

Her command of the issues is somewhat lacking. In June, she appeared on MSNBC where she claimed that if Obamacare were replaced, 700 billion would lose coverage.
