Maxine's Birthday Wish: Waters Says She Wants Trump 'Removed From Office'
California Rep. Maxine Waters turns 80 years old on Wednesday, and told a cable news host she wants President Trump removed from office for her birthday.
An MSNBC host wished Waters a "happy birthday" and the Democrat responded by saying that she wanted Trump to go.
"My biggest birthday wish would be that we're able to get a leader of this country who represents us -- who has the respect of all of our allies," Waters said.
Don't believe for a second that Giuliani & Trump are honestly negotiating an interview w/ Mueller. Trump's lawyers never intended him to interview w/ Mueller b/c they know he would get caught in his lies and lying to the FBI is a crime. The president will never meet w/ Mueller.

"Someone who has appreciation for the Constitution. Someone that doesn't lie... with these tweets," she said. "He doesn't even know the words to the Star-Spangled Banner."
"I would wish that we could remove [Trump] from office," Waters continued, adding that if she cannot get her wish, that "2020 is coming up" and Trump should be concerned in his reelection bid.
Waters said she will not allow Trump to "intimidate" her.
"I am the ranking member of the financial services committee of the United States House of Representatives. I guide my colleagues on financial services issues... I am going to continue to go after him," Waters said.
UPDATE: On Wednesday, President Trump took to Twitter to wish Waters a happy birthday, mockingly calling her the "leader of the Democrat Party."
Happy Birthday to the leader of the Democrat Party, Maxine Waters!
