Liberal firebrand Rep.Maxine Waters threw a public temper-tantrum on the floor of the US House of Representatives on Thursday, harassing Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and screaming the same thing at least a dozen times.
Waters, who is quickly becoming President Trump’s harshest congressional critic, prodded Mnuchin during a House Financial Services Committee hearing over why she hadn’t received a response to a May letter she sent him about Trump’s financial connections to Russia. She has a meltdown while questioning Treasury Secretary at a House Financial Services Committee hearing, interrupting the Trump official over 14 times within two-minutes while repeatedly screaming, “Reclaiming my time!”
“Mr. Chairman, I thought when you read the rules you acknowledged that I shouldn’t be interrupted,” said Mnuchin as he was interrupted by Waters yet again.
“What he failed to tell you was when you’re on my time, I can reclaim it,” Waters snapped.
Mnuchin continued, saying, “Let me just say that the Department of Treasury has cooperated extensively with the Sen-“
“Reclaiming my time! Reclaiming my time! Reclaiming my time! Reclaiming my time! Reclaiming my time!” repeated Waters.
“Perhaps Mr. Chairman I don’t understand the rules because I thought I was allowed to-“ said the Treasury Secretary before being cut off.
“Reclaiming my time! Reclaiming my time!” screamed Maxine. “Reclaiming my time! Thank you very much,” said Waters. Watch.
Waters is leading a group of House Democrats who have requested Treasury Department to disclose any financial ties between Russia and President Trump, his family and allies. She is a vocal opponent of the Trump administration who has been nicknamed “Auntie Maxine” by her progressive fans. She has stated she does not “honor” the president and has repeatedly called for Donald Trump’s impeachment.
