Look out folks, Rep. Maxine Waters is officially off the chains.
On Monday, the California progressive lit up President Donald Trump in an wild tweet, consisting of name calling and begging him to pray for forgiveness for the tragedy she claims he’s causing.
“Trump, you incompetent idiot! You sent 18 tons of PPE to China early but ignored warnings & called COVID19 concerns a hoax. You’ve endangered doctors, nurses, aids, orderlies, & janitors – all risking their lives to save ours. Pray 4 forgiveness for the harm that you’re causing!”

Like most things Waters says, she couldn’t be more wrong.
Trump was one of the first people to be on the scene, having started the White House Coronavirus Task Force over two months ago, on January 29.
Since that time, he has worked hard not to cause panic by hyping up COVID-19 and starting a nationwide panic — we have the mainstream media to thank for that. Additionally, Trump took unprecedented action by banning travel to China early on, along with restricting travel to Europe shortly after.
And the president never called COVID-19 a hoax, but he did call the politicization of the virus by Democrats a hoax — why would he start an official department to combat the coronavirus if he thought it was a hoax? Give me a break, Maxine.
Ultimately, Waters should be very happy that the United States doesn’t have socialized medicine like most of Europe. Their mortality rate is leaps and bounds above America’s — if anything, Trump’s swift action and call for the private sector to help is saving lives.
It will get worse before it gets better, but no one has proved themselves more competent than those in the Trump administration at fighting this virus.
