Democratic congresswoman Maxine Waters has long called for the impeachment of US president Donald Trump. In an emotional interview she’s now added to her list, VP Mike Pence… briefly confusing him with Vladimir Putin.
During an interview on ABC’s show “The View” Saturday, the long serving politician once again called for the impeachment of Trump adding this time that his vice president Mike Pence should suffer a similar fate.
However, in what was perhaps a freudian slip, the congresswoman said that once they were finished with Trump, Putin is next.
“Do you think Pence will be better than Trump if he were impeached?” asked the shows host Joy Behar.
“No,” Waters replied. “And when we finish with Trump we have to go and get Putin. He’s next.”
“Putin or Pence?” Behar asked.
“Uh, Pence,” Waters said amidst nervous laughter from the shows co-hosts.
Representative Waters has previously argued that Donald Trump will inevitably be impeached because of his alleged ties to the Russian president who she also claimed is “advancing in Korea.”
