Dear old auntie Maxine is having a bit of a temper tantrum because fewer and fewer people are supporting her incessant calls to impeach the president. The Time 100 honoree (why?) told the magazine during its ceremony that she wants Trump to “just get out” of office.

“If you had to give some advice to President Trump, what advice would you give him?” a Time reporter asked Waters on the red carpet.
“Please resign so that I won’t have to keep up this fight of your having to be impeached, because I don’t think you deserve to be there.
“Just get out!” she declared.
The president has previously dismissed Waters as “low I.Q.”
The American Mirror reports,
While Waters can’t seem to talk about impeachment enough, other Democrats are warning the party to drop the subject.
At an Axios event in Chicago yesterday, Mayor Rahm Emanuel told me midterm Democratic candidates are unwise to rely on the allure of impeaching President Trump as an issue in November’s races.
His advice: “I lived through the Clinton White House. This is a serious legal and constitutional, not political, issue. … I couldn’t be angrier at Donald Trump. … That said, you don’t just flippantly say: We’re for [impeachment].”
* “When we get to it, we collectively as a country will know it — as we did with, like, Richard Nixon.”
* “[Y]ou don’t just treat … the policy standard of impeachment … as a political tool. It’s a constitutional standard and, when that standard has been met, we’ll know about it. … This is a case where the best politics is good policy.”
The site quotes liberal New York Times columnist Charles Blow, who predicts, “It is quite possible that trying to impeach and remove Trump could have the opposite effect than the one desired: It could boost rather than diminish his popularity and an acquittal by the Senate would leave an even more popular president in office.”
