Now, at a gala hosted by EMILY’s list, a PAC that aims to elect female Democrats who support abortion rights, Waters decided to ramp things up a bit by referring to Trump as a “disgusting, poor excuse of a man” and saying that she’s putting her “career on the line” to resist his presidency.
“We must take our anger, our pain, our collective strength to right this wrong, to resist this tyranny and to save our democracy from a man whose immoral character and distorted thinking are an imminent threat to our nation.”
“There are many who do not like what I’m doing. I’m putting my career on the line. But I’ve decided that no matter those who do dislike what I’m doing, no matter those who disagree with me, I feel absolutely certain that this country deserves better than Donald Trump.”
“We will not allow ourselves to be shut up, or shut down by anyone. Especially this disgusting, poor excuse of a man who is now the President of the United States.”
Pardon our cynicism, Ms. Waters, but coming from a California district that supported Hillary by a 72% to 22% margin, we hardly believe that your “resist Trump” initiative is in anyway ‘threatening’ to your career. A more appropriate adjective might be “self-serving.”
