I missed this yesterday when it happened, so I'm sharing it with you now in case you did, too.
Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., either had a big slip of the tongue during a press conference, or she is under the very false impression that Russia has invaded Korea.
The congresswoman spoke Monday with a gaggle of reporters in the nation's capital about her opposition to President Trump.
"How can a president, who is acting in the manner that he's acting … whether he's talking about his relationship to [Russian President Vladimir Putin], and the Kremlin – and knowing that they have hacked our D-triple-C – DNC, and knowing that he is responsible for supplying the bombs that killed innocent children and families in, um," she stammered, forgetting the name of the conflict zone to which she was referring.
Someone standing near her reminded her that Putin has been involved in the shelling of civilians in the Syrian city of Aleppo.
"Yeah, in Aleppo," Waters said.
She continued, adding, "And the fact that he is wrapping his arms around Putin while Putin is continuing to advance into – Korea?"
I think she meant Crimea, which Russia annexed on March 18, 2014. Either that or she actually thinks Russia has advanced into one of the Koreas, in which case I have no idea what she's talking about.
"I think that he is leading himself into that kind of position where folks will begin to ask, what are we going to do?" Waters said. "And the answer is going to be, eventually, we've got to do something about him. We cannot continue to have a president who's acting in this manner. It's dangerous to the United States of America."
The congresswoman's remarks come after she said last week that she hoped Trump wouldn't last a full term.
"And my greatest [hope] is to lead him right into impeachment," she said.
