California Rep. Maxine Waters latest rant is starting to border on sedition.
Waters said that she wanted citizens in every city in the nation to take to the streets against the president.
“’It’s time for everybody to stand up. All hands on deck to refuse this president these fake emergency powers that he would like the have,” she told Chris Hayes.
‘And so I’m urging everybody get together —rally in every community across this country all this weekend, send a message to Washington, D.C., ‘No, Mr. President, we’re not going allow you to do this,’’” she said.
Waters said she expects a lot of Republicans to get on board with the Democrats to fight the president.
“I really expect we’re going to have a growing number of Republicans that are going to join with us in this disapproval,” Waters said.
“Yes, they’re concerned if a Democratic president gets elected then they can use emergency powers to do a lot of the things they don’t like,” she said.
There are more than 30 national emergencies still in effect and 58 have been declared since 1979.
But somehow this one is one too many for liberals and it is likely because of the man who declared it.
Waters even took to Twitter to rally citizens to stand against President Trump.
“All Americans who respect the Constitution, get ready for the big, big fight! Trump declares FAKE emergency, stealing previously appropriated funds from DOD, Mil. Con., & Treasury. Let’s go, join me! People power can stop him!” she said.

Maxine. How are your ethics violations coming along?

I wouldn't join you for all the money in the world. Search in your heart, remove your rabid hatred and ask yourself what good for the country are you doing. Or does that not matter. All of you can insult me, but let's see some intelligent answers.

Standing for the U.S. constitution is admitting we're a nation with borders that noncitizens must respect. Illegal immigration is disrespectful, against the federal law & dilution of our sovereignty as a country. #hardtruth

Are you kidding? There's been a national emergency at the border for years now. Innocent Mexicans losing their lives. The violence is slowly creeping into the US. Maybe not in border cities, because they're heavily law enforced. But in other places in the US.

I respect the constitution, I also respect the office of the POTUS, he doesn't need to be stopped when it comes to protecting the citizens of our country.

The problem is we want a wall. It’s not an opposing view to want a wall and support immigration.
