Black Democrat blasts ‘Putin’s advance in Korea’
Black Congresswoman Maxine Waters is no fan of president Vladimir Putin's "advance in Korea" while he has the US president firmly in an embrace.

Waters is also calling for president Donald Trump’s impeachment, even though she has yet to accuse Trump of breaking the law.
Speaking to surprised reporters together with other House Democrats, Waters attempted to build the case for why Democrats may push for impeachment.
“How can a president who is acting the manner he is acting — whether he’s talking about the travel ban, the way he’s targeted Muslims, or whether he’s talking about his relationship to (Vladimir) Putin and the Kremlin and knowing that they have hacked our (Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee) and the (Democratic National Committee),” she ranted.
“And knowing that he’s responsible for supplying the bombs that killed innocent children and families in… um… in, um…” she said, forgetting the name until someone behind her whispered: “Aleppo.”
“Yeah… in Aleppo,” she said. Unperturbed Waters continued, “And the fact that he is wrapping his arms around Putin while Putin is continuing to advance into Korea.”
Korea, Crimea, must sound the same to the Democrat, but reporters stared at her in disbelief.
Referring to Trump, she went on, “I think he’s leading himself into that kind of position where folks will begin to ask, ‘What are we going to do?’ and the answer’s going to be, ‘Eventually, we’ve got to do something about him.’”
Moscow meanwhile expects an apology from Fox News after host Bill O’Reilly called Russian President Vladimir Putin “a killer”. The unflattering term was used to question Donald Trump’s intention to work more closely with Russia.
“We consider the words of the Fox News host unacceptable and insulting,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told RT on Monday. “We would prefer to receive an apology to the Russian president from a respected TV station like that.”
Trump shrugged off the nasty comment, saying: “There are a lot of killers. We’ve got a lot of killers. What, do you think our country is so innocent?”
Trump did not name specific US officials, but mentioned the US invasion of Iraq in 2003 as an example of why he did not consider America to be innocent, saying that “a lot of people were killed” there.
