I think it's a way of quieting voices that maybe people in power don't want to hear because it potentially interferes with their ability to do what they do and say what they want to say and exercise power in certain ways...

Prior to her View appearance, she was also a guest on MSNBC's Morning Joe where she continued criticizing Trump, calling him the "most deplorable person" she's ever met. "I think he is going to connect the dots and I think we're nearing a constitutional crisis".

Kilgor wrote in the YouTube description: "Our beloved "Auntie" Maxine Waters laid this sermon down so good that I had to sign about it". Having been a congresswoman for 37 years (in November 2016 she was elected to her 14th term in the U.S. House of Representatives) Waters said she's always been outspoken, but with Trump's election, she's finally being heard.

"Putin or Pence?" Behar asked.

"That's simply a rumor everybody", Waters said.

UN Security Council imposes tough new sanctions on North Korea
The resolution bans North Korea from exporting coal, iron, lead and seafood products estimated to be worth over $1 billion. North Korea has already faced a decade's worth of ever-increasing sanctions backed by the US and its allies.

Rep. Maxine Waters said that she was not concerned.

"Not only will we resist you, we will impeach you, Donald Trump" she said to a cheering crowd. "They're undermining him because they want to see him stopped".

Paula Faris brought up The Washington Post publishing transcripts of the president's phone conversations with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto and Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull on Friday, asking the California congresswoman if she was "disturbed" by the leaks.

What started off as a simple acceptance speech with thank yous and admonishments of self-love ended in a rallying cry to "reclaim" lost time as the recent social media sensation extended her advice to the young people who have dubbed her "Aunty Maxine". "How long is it going to take, I don't know", she mused, "but I give it till about December".

"It's a scary thing to try to undermine the president because you don't like his policy and don't trust him - and risk undermining the entire country in the process", added co-host Jedediah Bila.
