Fiery Congresswoman Maxine Waters called the GOP leadership of the House of Representatives “demons” in an address to California Democrats, which has now gone viral. In an attempt to rally her fellows Dems to “take back the House,” she railed against John Boehner and Eric Cantor personally in what is sure to be a controversial clip.
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), in video surfacing Wednesday, called Republican leaders House Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor “demons” who are “destroying this country” last weekend in seeking to rally California Democrats to political action.
“We’ve got to take back the House,” Waters told the crowd in the final moments of her speech to the California Democratic Convention.
She pointed to the display behind her as she continued:
“I saw pictures of Boehner and Cantor on our screens. Don’t ever let me see again, in life, those Republicans in our hall, on our screens, talking about anything. These are demons. These are legislators who are destroying this country rather than bringing us together, creating jobs, making sure we have a good tax policy, bringing our jobs from back off-shore, incentivizing those who keep the jobs here. They are bringing down this country, destroying this country, because they’d rather do whatever they can do destroy this president rather than for the good of this country.”
