California Representative Maxine Waters chose to boycott President Trump鈥檚 first State of the Union address on Tuesday night, but opted to respond to the president鈥檚 words with her own brief message which aired on BET yesterday. In her short response, Waters鈥 fiery personality shone through, and she didn鈥檛 mince words in broaching what she feels is a negative overall tone in Washington right now.

鈥淵esterday, Donald Trump had the audacity to call upon people to set aside differences, when in reality, he has divided Americans in ways no other modern president has done,鈥 Waters began.

From this starting point, the 鈥渞eclaiming my time,鈥 congresswoman recalled the president鈥檚 reaction to the racial violence in Charlottesville, VA, accusing the president of 鈥渄efending white supremacists and the KKK.鈥 (While the president never made explicitly pro-white supremacist remarks following Charlottesville, he was widely criticized for saying that white nationalist protesters included 鈥some very fine people,鈥 among other things.)

Waters went on to remind viewers of the president鈥檚 previous comments on Mexicans and the racially charged travel bans his administration has worked to implement.

鈥淚t鈥檚 impossible to believe him,鈥 she deadpans,鈥漺hen he tries to declare that he wants to bring the country together.鈥

Waters then goes on to straight up accuse the president of being racist, and calls Trump out for regular 鈥渧ulgarity鈥 making the president, in her eyes, 鈥渦nsuitable for children.鈥

Next, the woman fans call 鈥淎untie Maxine,鈥 decided to land a punch in the face of the administration鈥檚 foreign policy, reminding folks about the president鈥檚 verbal attack on our allies in NATO, our refusal to comply with the Paris Accord, and the administration鈥檚 seemingly cozy relationship with Russia鈥檚 Vladimir Putin 鈥 a man and nation who are under intense scrutiny for possible meddling in the 2016 election cycle.

Finally, Waters lashed out at the Republican-led Congress, saying that those in power in the party are too yielding to the president鈥檚 dangerous whims, and their complacency has equal weight in the state of US politics. Reminding people that the current administration inherited a strong economy from President Obama, she calls specifically on Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell for their towing of the company line in all things Trump.

Calling the White House, 鈥渃onstant chaos,鈥 Waters then delivers her final punch:

鈥淚ncreasingly, millions of Americans have recognized that Donald Trump is detrimental to our nation. We deserve better. That鈥檚 why I have called for his impeachment.鈥

She goes on: 鈥淪ome believe it鈥檚 too early. I disagree. The time is now. We must organize, challenge and resist.鈥

While this isn鈥檛 the official Democrat response to SOTU, Waters鈥 tendency to unabashedly speak her mind has created a huge fan base within groups who want to see the president ousted, and continues to draw ire from those GOP fans who think her brash words are disrespectful.
