California Rep Maxine Waters Identifies Democrats' Problem: 'Way Too Nice' for Our Own Good
Just when you think the left has advanced every idiotic claim, made every nonsensical statement and proposed every frightening agenda item to further damage the United States, along comes the incomparable Maxine Waters to again prove that DC is home to more delusional, self-infatuated assholes than any other city on earth.

As Democrats continue to wrestle not only with Hillary Clinton's loss, but also the loss of more than 1,000 seats from state legislatures, governors' offices, and the U.S. Congress over the last eight years, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) has identified the problem:
Democrats are 'way too nice.'
Waters made the observation during an interview with MSNBC Monday, saying she has no intention of trying to find common ground with President Trump.
“That has been a problem in my party, that when we’re in power we’re nice. We bend over backwards to work with people. Trump has stepped over everybody. He has no respect for his own colleagues, let alone those on the opposite side of the aisle.”
Waters, re-elected to her 14th term in California's 43rd District in November — a large part of South Central Los Angeles — says she won't even meet with Trump, let alone work with him.
“I have no intention of pretending everything is alright. This business of calling names, and lying, and retreating on your promises, etcetera, why should I trust him to be any different with me?”
Waters made similar comments to MSNBC three days after the election.
"I don’t believe anything Donald Trump says. He has lied and distorted information all throughout this campaign. I want to know when he is going to show us his taxes?
I want to know when he is going to reimburse all those students that got ripped off [by] Trump University.”
Incidentally, the House Ethics Committee brought three charges against Waters — the ranking member on the Financial Services Committee — in 2010, accusing her of helping a California bank secure federal bailout funds... in which her husband owned stock.
