She is being hailed as "Auntie Maxine" among her admirers in the media who have elevated her to a wise elder stateswoman they can regularly depend on for a rabid anti-Trump quote clip on cable news and that she is African-American only adds to her credentials in the eyes of the Left.

Maxine Waters, U.S. Congresswoman from a district in Los Angeles far away from the leafy, affluent, 70 percent white neighborhood surrounding a private golf club, has been in Congress for nearly three decades, assembling more outrageous quotes than bills passed, but her near obsessive hatred of President Trump has made her a hero to the Left.

While the 78-year-old Waters' early history could serve as inspirational as one of 13 children raised by a single mother in Missouri who eventually graduated from college and worked as a teacher's aide, her move into politics, beginning in 1977, started her on a path to personal riches that had less to do with public service than public rabble rousing in the service of stirring racial division.

From calling the violence surrounding the Rodney King riots in 1992 as "understandable" and justifying the looting of Korean family stores as "mothers who took this as an opportunity to take some milk, to take some bread, to take some shoes ... They are not crooks,"

She championed the thug who smashed a concrete block on Reginald Denny's head – celebrating when he was released from jail to go on to murder and a life sentence.

She visited Castro's Cuba urging him to refuse extradition of cop-killer Assata Shakur back to the U.S.

In short – Waters can be counted for the far left view – whether it makes sense or not.

She famously protested the election of Donald Trump by skipping attendance at the inauguration, vowing to devote her current term in office to his impeachment, only to maintain vehemently that she had "not called for his impeachment."

Of course, that was at the same time she accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of invading... Korea. It was thought she meant Crimea – a slight difference.

The real problem with holding Waters up as a wise old "auntie" is her dubious reputation.

Besides building a paltry record of passing legislation during her 18 terms in the capital, Waters has other achievements – winning the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) as one of the Most Corrupt Members of Congress.

CREW cited her use of her position on the Financial Services Committee of the House of Representatives to pressure U.S. Treasury Department officials to work with a bank her husband held stock in – a clear conflict of interests that stood to net the couple millions.

Waters has led three bills through Congress to enactment as law: one bill to provide relief to Haiti, a modification of an existing bill on flood insurance and... the renaming of a U.S. post office.

In fact, the watchdog group, CREW, has "honored" her with the award on four occasions in 2005, 2006, 2009 and 2011.

A truly great example for the current Democrat party to hold up as inspiration.
