Maxine Waters tries to GRILL bankers – and EXPOSES her IGNORANCE instead!

Maxine Waters is getting ridiculed everywhere today over her attempt to grill executives from the banking sector in her committee.

Watch what happens:



So first of all, she demands that they help with the student loan crisis and one by one they explain that they are not giving out student loans anymore. Amazing.

THEN she accidentally reveals that she didn’t even know the government took over these loans. Incredible.

Yikes.

  1. This is the best example of someone who should not be chairing any Committee,or is she their because of diversity.Its finally “coming home to roost”.

  2. This stupid bimbo is head of banking comm and doesn’t KNOW the damn gov under barry o took over student loans wow ….can she get any dumber

  3. LMAO for real! Well, if I had one to laugh off anyway. Chuck Woolery cracked me. Thanks, Dems, for the entertainment. I am doubtful that Maxine is embarassed. That requires some level of shame.

  4. Ahhhhh Maxine, your mother probably was happy when you brought a C grade home from school.

  5. 0 – How many news outlets will replay this.
    3 – The amount of brain cells her constituents have.
    Priceless – The documented fact that she does no work for a living.

  6. How did ‘Mad Maxine’ become chair of the House Financial Services Committee?…Let’s see, what are her qualifications?

    1. @mst3k The only answer I can think of is she’s a devoted idiot socialist liberal because she truly doesn’t really have any intelligent qualifications.

  7. Perhaps her intent was to remind everyone that she was an idiot before AOC was the class clown?

    1. She want to maintain her position as the least intelligent and AOC is giving her a run for her (our) money.

  8. Ummm…Let’s not forget she thought the banks didn’t lend to Small Business’ either. They do it every day…Ever heard of the merchant window? #Idiot

  9. Can we say dumb as a rock, my gosh it’s scary the idiots we have in our Congress. When I read Chuck Woorley tweet I had to laugh.

  10. You tell a Democrat about this and you get these responses:
    1. That’s a lie!
    2. Republican X said…
    3. Blank stare…then an enraged hiss, “You/Trump/conservatives are racist!”

    You can’t argue with those kinds of “logic.”

  11. Yeah I saw that yesterday (or maybe the day before?). I was embarrassed as heck for her; sooo stupid. But she was shameless (as they all are on the left) and marched on, so I was no longer embarrassed for her. Even I knew that Obama took over the student loan program completely and kicked out the banks. I maxed out my student loans back in the ’80’s (fully aware I would have to pay them back) getting an engineering degree. It took me 12 years to pay them back. Woulda been nice to have used that money for a nice used car or payment on a house, but I paid it back. Never a thought of not paying them back.

    1. There you go with that “responsibility” thing again. Excellent! Our kids had to bear their share of the student loans. We felt it was important for them to have some skin in the game.

      Poor addled Maxine is so eaten up by her hatred of the more conservative party and her desire to torch her opponents she cannot even take the time to stay current on events and policies. Very sad and telling.

  12. I’ll bet Nancy Pelosi is ageing at the rate of dog years with this newest batch of committee chairs (Maxine, Nadler, Schiff, etc.). Even San Fran Nan can’t possibly miss this.

  13. Ignorance on full display, no wonder she hurriedly realized she was out of time there at the end, lol. It’s your precious government, honey, that’s making problems for people!

    And if people are defaulting on their student loans, how the hell is it the fault of the banks or lendors? They’re the ones eating the losses when people default! Moron!

  14. look up the history of the 43rd district she represents. Lots of people voting in the 70’s-90’s with republicans in power, then numbers plummet as dems take over and now its a shit hole

    1. @blackr1 Nancy’s still trying to figure that one out. Leave them alone – this stuff is better than Saturday Night Live.

    1. @trytothink It would be awfully hard to top Hank Johnson (“Guam tipping over”_. But try they must.

  19. Ignorance on full display, no wonder she hurriedly realized she was out of time there at the end, lol. It’s your precious government, honey, that’s making problems for people!

  20. Just another, “we gotta pass the bill to know what’s in the bill”…moment? Obviously, proof that she signs things and votes for laws without every reading them.

  21. The voters in California sent this cretin to congress to “represent” them.

    How sad that they think so little of themselves that they would vote for a numbskull like her to represent them. Doesn’t say much for their opinion of themselves.

  22. Can we say dumb as a rock, my gosh it’s scary the idiots we have in our Congress. When I read Chuck Woorley tweet I had to laugh.

  23. I can’t believe that Maxine’s face isn’t plastered over the internet today or the first in line in a news story. Maxine is a colossal idiot: trying to grill the bankers about student loans and it’s been years since the government took over lending. If the Republicans don’t use her exchange with the bankers yesterday in ads, then R’s are colossal idiots as well. “Why let government take over health care? (Maxine) Why let government do __________________ ANYTHING!!!!!!’ Maxine’s ignorance is astounding.

    1. There are 435 members in the House, knows as the lower chamber of the legislature. I would guess that perhaps 10% of them have a functioning brain or actually know something.

      Maxine is part of the larger, dumber number. And being from California, where they have a whopping 53 representatives she is probably a member of the largest number of nincompoops from one state.

      The “House” is supposed to be the part of the legislature closest to the people. That doesn’t speak well of us – does it?

  24. Maxine displayed maximum ignorance and stupidity. The dems will position this situations as being water(s) under the bridge.

    The dems didn’t have a good day yesterday. Committee chair, Nadler made a fool of himself by wrongfully accusing Candice Owens of calling a Congressional rep stupid. Finance committee chair, Maxine Waters makes a complete fool of herself by asking the CEO’s of banks what they are going to do to help the student loan crisis. Mad Maxine finds out for the first time that the banks have gotten out of the student loan business since Obama took it over in 2009.

    The smug, arrogant and clearly ignorant democrats love to tell us that they know better than we do how to run our lives. They can’t run their own lives, let alone, ours.

    1. @trytothink It would be awfully hard to top Hank Johnson (“Guam tipping over”_. But try they must.

  25. And these are the folks that want to audit President Trump’s taxes…..LMAO

    Maybe the democrats will put economics wunderkind Alexandria Occasionally-Coherent in charge of the audit.

    1. That woman has so much egg on her face we should start calling her Omelette. She is a prime example why the Left should not be running anything. They don’t understand economics, government, liberty and they think the Constitution means whatever the social justice fad of the day says it means. They truly ARE the lawless generation spoken of in the Scriptures. Lawlessness and cluelessness are a very dangerous combination.

  26. Just another, “we gotta pass the bill to know what’s in the bill”…moment? Obviously, proof that she signs things and votes for laws without every reading them.

  27. The voters in California sent this cretin to congress to “represent” them.

    How sad that they think so little of themselves that they would vote for a numbskull like her to represent them. Doesn’t say much for their opinion of themselves.

    1. These are the most accurate representations of the will of their constituents. We get what they vote for.

      1. Sadly this is why I think term limits may not work. These cretins don’t elect themselves. If one of them leaves due to term limits a greedy, clueless and lawless electorate will just put another self-serving clone in the office. The problem is the electorate not necessarily the politician. Maybe loud and proud REAL education is the answer? May never know with the state of things as they are, sigh.

        1. The reason we have corrupt government officials selling favors is because there are government favors to sell. Production precedes consumption. If there were no goodies to sell (small, constitutional powers only), then there wouldn’t be salesmen (corrupt lawmakers) selling to buyers (corrupt lobbyists).

          The further we drift from the limited government we were promised, the more Mad Maxine types we’ll get (AOC, Schiff, Jackson-Lee, Omar, Tlaib, etc.).

    2. When it comes to democrats being in charge it’s amateur hour. They represent the mental capacity of their voters.

  28. Who doesn’t already know that Maxine Waters is an idjit? Just listen to her talk for 30 seconds. She doesn’t know anything. She has a mouth and blabs, but she seldom makes much sense. Obviously her supporters are even stupider than she is. How can we change Maxine without changing them?

      1. @dr-strangelove Hey, Doc!

        Was life better back in the day when you’d see a few stupid people on TV, deal with one here or there in your daily life, but otherwise remain blissfully ignorant of the overwhelming number of them out in the world?

        Or is life better now where we can see endless numbers of them online and see so many of their “thought” leaders on the endless cable news and opinion shows?

        1. @ttt In this case, I believe that ignorance truly is bliss. George Carlin said that imagine how dumb the average person is and realize that half of them are even stupider.

          1. @dr-strangelove Carlin was funny, before he became an extremely cynical and bitter S.O.B. in his later years.

              1. @dr-strangelove I eluded to that fact when I said, “was funny”. I bought his vinyl albums and still have ‘em.

      2. And all the race-baiters that surround politicians like Mad Max like remoras on a shark. When they only listen to people who are the same race or political persuasion that they are then they hear only what those people want them to know. It is amazing to hear from the people who walked away from all of that and most of them will tell you that they had no clue how they had been lied to.

        1. @philliesthoughts It is amazing. Of course, I used to believe everything that I heard on the news.

  29. I can’t believe that Maxine’s face isn’t plastered over the internet today or the first in line in a news story. Maxine is a colossal idiot: trying to grill the bankers about student loans and it’s been years since the government took over lending. If the Republicans don’t use her exchange with the bankers yesterday in ads, then R’s are colossal idiots as well. “Why let government take over health care?

      The “House” is supposed to be the part of the legislature closest to the people. That doesn’t speak well of us – does it?

  30. Why do people keep wanting to blame the banks for student loans? It’s the schools that charge outrageous tuition and it’s people who agree to those prices and take out the loans. It’s not the bank’s fault unless they’re supposed to come out and say “nope not giving you money to go to school” which in turn the feds would’ve came down on them for that and forced them to anyway.

    Now Sallie Mae is dolling out the same cash so what difference does it make? It still all starts at the price of tuition.

    1. If the government stopped subsidizing loans and the schools themselves had to make financing available or left it to the potential student you would see the cost of higher education drop dramatically. When there is no competition prices always go up when the guberment is involved.

      1. That’s something Bernie Sanders can’t figure out. Making colleges “free” means they’ll totally jack up the costs because students won’t have to pay for it so they really won’t care. Embedding it all in taxes is a blank check for the university system.

      2. If government subsidies ended the vast majority of universities would die. Instead, a whole crop of trade schools would appear, offer cheap degrees and/or certifications, and churn out capable craftsmen ready to work.

    2. Tuition is sky rocketing because of an unending supply of cheap money. You stop the cheap money you’ll see tuition costs dropping as institutions compete against one another for scarce student dollars.

      This is a Leftist racket that needs greater public exposure. Instead of Tucker Carlson railing on about the burden of student debt, which admittedly is real, he instead needs to focus like a laser beam on the origination of that student debt, LEFTIST policies from the Obama administration.

        1. It was Ebonics for:

          “I don’t know what the hell I’m talking about so I’m going to shout unintelligibly until people get tired of hearing my voice and give me what I want which is more money and power.”

          It is a truly unique, compact, and expressive language.

  31. Maxine displayed maximum ignorance and stupidity. The dems will position this situations as being water(s) under the bridge.

    The dems didn’t have a good day yesterday. Committee chair, Nadler made a fool of himself by wrongfully accusing Candice Owens of calling a Congressional rep stupid.

  32. She was real quick at the end to say her time was up. The republican should have yield his time to Maxine and say please maxine enlighten us more with your brilliant questioning

    1. @trapper Splendid idea. Winning strategy to encourage the minority members of the committee to yield their 2 or 5 minutes to allow Max additional time to make a fool out of herself. Brilliant!

  33. And these are the folks that want to audit President Trump’s taxes…..LMAO

    Maybe the democrats will put economics wunderkind Alexandria Occasionally-Coherent in charge of the audit.

  34. This woman is a complete moron and a condescending leftist. She stumbles over her words like she’s drunk or losing her dentures.

    1. @ttt As I said below, her constituency is more likely to learn policy from The View.

      1. @dr-strangelove Hey, Doc!

  36. All the Democrats seem so very dumb today. They really can’t win anymore can they? People really won’t vote for this again will they?

      1. You and your trick questions. You know there’s a zero in there and her constituents can’t do math with a zero.

        1. Cause we all know naught times naught while carrying the naught equals naught.

          The Jethro Bodine School of Mathematics wins every time.

  37. Why do people keep wanting to blame the banks for student loans? It’s the schools that charge outrageous tuition and it’s people who agree to those prices and take out the loans.

  38. Huckabee’s right. There’s no better example of foot-in-mouth disease than what spews from that foul b!tch.

    1. @Ush “Huckabee’s right.” Now there’s something that you don’t hear every day.

    2. @ush Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff, Waters, Warren, Wasserman-Schultz, Boxer, Feinstein, Nadler, Gillibrand, Cuomo, Brown, Omar, Tlalib, AOC, Obama, Hillary, Sanders, Swalwell, Booker, Harris, …

  39. She was real quick at the end to say her time was up. The republican should have yield his time to Maxine and say please maxine enlighten us more with your brilliant questioning

    1. @trapper Splendid idea. Winning strategy to encourage the minority members of the committee to yield their 2 or 5 minutes to allow Max additional time to make a fool out of herself. Brilliant!

  40. This is the best example of someone who should not be chairing any Committee,or is she their because of diversity.Its finally “coming home to roost”.

  41. This stupid bimbo is head of banking comm and doesn’t KNOW the damn gov under barry o took over student loans wow ….can she get any dumber

  42. Could we please require that these so called leaders at least take a competency test before being sworn in. Our government is being run by fools who demand we live by their policies because they know best. Perhaps and SAT test would suffice. They say you get the kind of leadership you deserve. No one deserves this.

  43. This woman is a complete moron and a condescending leftist. She stumbles over her words like she’s drunk or losing her dentures.

    Maxine Waters pays her daughter $100,000 to work for her campaign

    Maxine has accumulated multi-million dollar net worth keeping her community poor
    Maxine lives out of her district in a multi million dollar home

    Poverty is a lucrative business for the Democrat political elite

    1. @mst3k She lives in a $4.7M dollar home in a gated community outside of her district.

      On Oct. 10, 2010 Waters was charged with three counts of violating House rules and the federal ethics code in connection with her effort to arrange a 2008 meeting between Treasury officials and representatives with OneUnited bank. Her goal was to secure a federal bailout of OneUnited the bank her husband owns stock in.

    1. I think this is the first time she caught on that she was embarrassing herself. Notice how quick she said her time was up

  45. She’s a disgrace.

    But of course, that can be said of 90% of all politicians and 100% of all democrats.

  46. All the Democrats seem so very dumb today. They really can’t win anymore can they? People really won’t vote for this again will they?

      1. You and your trick questions. You know there’s a zero in there and her constituents can’t do math with a zero.

    1. @teri-smith Her California district is one of the most impoverished, drug infested, crime ridden and it has one of the largest homeless populations, per capita, in the nation. In essence her district is a s..t hole.

  47. LMAO for real! Well, if I had one to laugh off anyway. Chuck Woolery cracked me. Thanks, Dems, for the entertainment. I am doubtful that Maxine is embarassed. That requires some level of shame.

  48. 0 – How many news outlets will replay this.
    3 – The amount of brain cells her constituents have.
    Priceless – The documented fact that she does no work for a living.

  49. Ummm…Let’s not forget she thought the banks didn’t lend to Small Business’ either. They do it every day…Ever heard of the merchant window? #Idiot

    1. She want to maintain her position as the least intelligent and AOC is giving her a run for her (our) money.

  50. How did ‘Mad Maxine’ become chair of the House Financial Services Committee?…Let’s see, what are her qualifications?

        1. @mst3k LOL. I can still remember when Johnson was worried that Guam would capsize if the U.S. Navy put a base on one end of the island.

    1. @mst3k The only answer I can think of is she’s a devoted idiot socialist liberal because she truly doesn’t really have any intelligent qualifications.

  51. Ahhhhh Maxine, your mother probably was happy when you brought a C grade home from school.

  52. This is the biggest “D’oh!” I have ever seen. Unbelievable. :facepalmg:

    I would say it is absolutely hilarious except the problem is when Big Government got together with Big Academia the sky was the limit. The Big Con, sending kids into indoctrination factories and charging a home mortgage worth for it, is not funny.

      1. @lurker_joe Between Mad Maxine and Pencil Neck Schiff (both from Los Angeles, ugh) the Dems really know how to pick em.
