  1. Grills the banks…
    this is a comedy movie.
    unfortunate the piece about student loans isn't in it.
    then you really would have a laugh….
    they stopped student loans when government took over in 2010 !
    Trump is so right….low…very low IQ.

  2. IMPEACH 45….IMPEACH 45!!!!!…..YELLING LIKE AN IDIOT….THIS DUMMY WILL NEVER GET ANYTHING DONE, ESPECIALLY FOR HER OWN CONSTITUENTS, WHICH IS ONE OF POOREST DISTRICTS OF SOUTHERN CAL…..INSTEAD OF DOING HER JOB AND CREATING BILLS INTO LAW TO HELP HER COMMUNITY, SHE IS HATE MONGERING THE ENTIRE FREE MARKET SYSTEM, WHY?…BECAUSE SHE HATES PRESIDENT TRUMP.

  3. I see you take my posts down!!! This woman deserves ANYTHING said about her!! You people can say horrible things about our president with no deletions!! So shady!! Don't think Americans like me don't see your unfair treatment of us!!!

  4. Why did you take my question down about how this woman lives in an extravagant mansion??? It is a good legit question??

  5. I thought you guys were better than Facebook but you are just as biased!! Sad that you have to shut down free speech!! Like the kid who can't have his way taking his toys home!! Sad little life when you do this to people! I feel sorry for you!!

  6. Reparations…… Should the families of the soldiers killed and wounded or crippled in the Civil War receive reparations from the ungrateful Negros for fighting to set them free?

  7. What a hilarious interview! Her talking about bank transactions while she helped her husband's bank bailout in mexifornia! 😂😂😂

  8. why people of this old hag's district keep voting her. maybe the main reason why is, people in her district have the same IQ as hers…… Low IQ.

  9. All those companies top people sitting there for what, was anything accomplished, play this at speed 1.5 and she really sounds like an idiot.

  10. Just curious. I know she’s really dumb. But doesn’t she have smart people under her to align questions that are of intellect ?

  11. The corrupt Democrat Maxine Waters (D-CA 43rd District) crossed a red line and unlawfully is perpetrating abuse of power to cover the Democratic Political Party’s self embarrassment on their criminal allegations on President Trump-Russian Collusion, that has been turned out as a prefabricated and false accusation by special counsel Muller’s probe., who has investigated on lies, slander, defamation, and slurs disseminated by Democratic Party toward obstructing and undermine the Trump administration. Robert Mueller’s 674-day, $30 million investigation is over and has failed to find the
    original goal of its mandate—evidence of a criminal conspiracy between the Trump presidential campaign and the Russian government to sway the 2016 election, and now those who eagerly assumed the role of the hunters may become the hunted, due to their own zealous violation of the nation’s trust and its laws.

  12. President Donald Trump warned the Democrats. But Maxine Waters ignored him and crossed a bright red line by issuing an ultimatum pursuing character assassinations by launching this ridiculous fishing expedition about the President and his banks being involved in Russian money laundering. The House Intelligence and Financial Services committees, which authorized the subpoenas, were expected to issue additional subpoenas targeting Trump’s finances soon; despite during the Mueller Probe Trump said the special counsel sifting through his business empire was a red line.

  13. Obviously, this is another Maxine Waters’ outrageous abuse of power because Congressional committees are fact-finding bodies, they are not criminal investigators, and they don’t have the right to dig through Donald Trump’s finances just  to continues obstructing his administration  and launch another investigation on Democratic Party’s lies accusations, using this as a premeditated infamous TRICK to confuse and MOCKING on U.S. Citizens because the Democratic Party fail to probe their criminal accusations based on lies; however, the most curious thing is that the accusations of corruption comes from Maxine WATERS WHO IS THE MOST CORRUPT DEMOCRAT IN CONGRESS and has been implicated in numerous fraud cases together with her husband and children. Undoubtedly, as the saying goes: “THE THIEF JUDGES BY HIS CONDITION.”

  14. Maxine Waters’ strategy to cover her corruption is fostering, harboring and encouraging unlawful actions, attacks and violence against Trump and his supporters or getting complaints filed against her. As a corollary, the NLPC filed a Complaint with the Federal Election Commission alleging that Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) violated federal election law in a transaction related to her so-called slate mailer during her last re-election campaign. The main beneficiary of the slate mailers appears to be companies controlled by Waters’ daughter Karen Waters, which have received hundreds of thousands of dollars to produce the mailers. Critics have charged that Waters’ slate mailers are a way to evade contribution limits. Waters looks to have enriched those closest to her through some shady campaign schemes. She must be accountable for corruption and dismissed from Office.

  15. This is exactly what is wrong with this country! I'm beginning to see the Rothschild's thinking that this planet is 90% over populated.

  16. The dems want abortion even after the birth. I say give it to them. Starting with Mad Max. It is time to abort her. Cut her up and sell her body parts.

  17. Only a illiterate fool would say shes crazy, these bankers are stealing all our szvings and retirements, white privilege thieves at there best

  18. Hilarious! The moment she realizes that these banks all stopped making educational loans over a decade ago and her organization is responsible for the 1.5 trillion in student loan debt.

  19. Does Ms Maxine have any background in critical thinking? She’s also a horrible “prosecutor “. Is she taking cues from Kamala? I see now how our government gets nothing done. Love the 6th grade line of questioning, not.

  20. If ever there was a great case to make why government should NOT be running the economy… this video explains it all.

  21. Does no one remember the Waters  investments included Russians and soviet block companies??? Why is that not resurfaced ??? She is seemingly extremely guilty for that and ALL should come out and she should be impeached. She has lied about her wealth, where she lives and investments she made…GUILTY<<<GUILTY<<<GUILTY YOU ARE UNDER WATER

  22. whats the point of asking them questions and wont let them answer fully i would of gotten up and walked out if i was the CEO of any of those companies

  23. Maxine Waters is an idiot period. The reason why there is a student loan crisis is because the gvt gives loans without any underwriting regulations so the schools are going to drive up the cost of tuition due to people just taking loans left and right. People think Bernie Sanders and the Democrats free agenda will solve people's problems good luck with that, it wont happen.

  24. Her saying Putin is probably the sound I loathe most in the world. REALLY it makes me see a red haze. Such an ugly sound.

  25. Maxine waters gave the graduation speech at my Son's Colege graduation. there she told these grads "NOT TO WATCH FOX NEWS"!!!! i was shocked that she would use this family occasion to push her political agenda. also disrespecting the rights of young minds to inquire into any information source they coose.IT'S STILL A FREE COUNTRY !!! but Maxine Waters is a SLAVEMAKER !! she wants all these kids be mentally enslaved to her doctrines-which come from Al Sharpton-not her own ideas.

  26. She is something else lmao but she does gives me hope that one day I will hold a position like hers, seems like anyone could do her job

  27. She's the dumbest idiot in Congress, this is the face of affirmative racist action. She wasn't hired because she's smart she got hired because of her skin color.

  28. Anybody know where I can buy a Maxine Waters fem-bot? Those nostrils give me a boner just thinking about them..

  29. If the people of California want to make thair state again a place that is the envy of not only the country but the world at large. Then the Obvious course of action is to get rid of the pack of criminals running it. Because right now thay have a handful of wealthy people sitting on top a big pile of money and misery. What is sadest is that those people preach compassion and dignity, but seen to have very little themselves.

  30. Lol Maxine making comments about banks? Yea those bank loans she helped get approved for her husbands bank? Lol

  31. Trigger warning for leftwingers: The facepalmed woman is NOT evil Donald Trump disguised in blackface drags. The clueless woman IS the real Maxine Waters.

  32. Ey ye ye, what an idiot this woman is. Sometimes I think people like her aren’t there for the betterment of society and the people that elected them, but to antagonize and annoy the hell out of the establishment.

  33. Sign the petition Freedomworks org! Remove her from Congress! Bye Bye Maxine Waters! Voter's are going to throw you under the bus! Shàlom🇺🇸✝️

  34. Battle of the Bulge Voice's of History YouTube Richard H Wheeler NEVER Give up American's! Shàlom🇺🇸✝️

  35. look at where she is versus you guys sitting at home on YouTube vrs a millionaire who is helping america take a look at your self and have a big think losers

  36. Look at her go!!! She REALLY THINKS her position makes a difference!!!!!!!! I almost feel sorry for her……. I SAID ALMOST! Everytime she cuts someone off, it's because she won't let them throw some common sense at her old, decrepit bag 'o bones!! RETIRE MAD MAX. RETIRE MAD MAX. RETIRE MAD MAX. (I had to repeat that, since she can't read correctly, remember who's the President, what day it is, etc. etc.)

  37. She's smart because she can fire off questions one after another and she can cut off bankers if they respond too slowly.
