United States Congresswoman Maxine Waters of California delivered a fiery speech at the Human Rights Campaign's annual Los Angeles Dinner Saturday night. Never at a loss for words, Rep. Waters ripped into Donald Trump, calling him “one of the most dishonorable, deceitful, and despicable people ever to hold public office.”
Waters ticked off a list of Trump transgressions against the LGBTQ community: a ban on transgender service members in the military, proposed budget cuts to programs supporting people living with HIV, and a rather terrifying proposition that Title VII does not include the LGBTQ community. “Well, what do I think about all of this?” she said to roaring applause as she removed her glasses and made a face that left no doubt how she felt about Trump's policies.
With Rep. Waters holding court on the West Coast, President Donald Trump was busy mocking her at his "am I just great or what speech" speech in Pennsylvania Saturday night.
Once again, Trump mocked Waters, saying she had a "very low IQ". Waters has become the source of Trump's incessant ridicule. In early March, Trump proposed at the annual Gridiron Club dinner that the Congresswoman take an IQ test.
