Maybe it’s a reflection of her advancing years — she is 78 — or the fact she was never the sharpest knife in the drawer to start with. But Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) has taken to venting her loathing of Donald Trump and everything he stands for… by making defamatory pictures. No, for real.
An image appearing on her official Twitter account carries the advice in the bottom righthand corner “Prepared by Rep.

Waters has been on a crusade to take Trump down since the 2016 election. In January, she called for his impeachment in advance of his being sworn in as president. Among the impeachable offenses she cited was his reference during the campaign to Hillary Clinton as “crooked Hillary.”
In February, she accused Trump of trying to help Putin rebuild the Soviet Union and called his administration “a bunch of scumbags.”
Now she is trying her hand at political “art.”
