President Donald Trump delivered a backhanded birthday shout-out to Rep. Maxine Waters on Wednesday after the California Democrat called his “rants” and “meltdowns” a way of distracting the nation from the Russia investigation.
“Happy Birthday to the leader of the Democrat Party, Maxine Waters!” Trump declared on Twitter as Waters turned 80 years old.
On Tuesday, Waters had tweeted: “Trump thinks he can distract us w/ his unhinged rants, meltdowns, and name calling at his rallies. Not me. I’m focused on his obstruction of justice, collusion w/ Russia, conspiracy, and jail time.”
This week, Trump has been on a tear against Omarosa Manigault Newman, calling the former White House aide a “dog” and “lowlife,” after she claimed he’s a racist in her new memoir “Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House.”
Trump has jumped on Waters in the past. In June, he took to Twitter to describe the veteran lawmaker as “an extraordinarily low IQ person.”
