Now it’s shaping up to be a full-fledged, low IQ political party.

CNN political commentator John Phillips believes there’s a chance that the Democrat nominee for President in 2020 could be Maxine Waters, a woman who rails perpetually about impeachment, encourages harassment of her political opponents, has been repeatedly dubbed a “low IQ individual” by the current President, and was once named “one of the most corrupt members of Congress.”

My response – If there is a God in heaven, please make it happen. Waters is quite possibly the only person the Democrats could nominate who would lose in a bigger landslide to President Trump than Hillary Clinton.

“California Congresswoman Maxine Waters could become the Democratic nominee for president in 2020,” Phillips wrote in a column for the Los Angeles Daily News. He then repeated it over and over as if to reassure himself he hadn’t gone off the deep end.

“How is it possible that a radical congresswoman, who was just called “un-American” by the leadership of her own party for encouraging viral confrontations with Trump administration officials, could win the presidential nomination of a major American political party?” he asked.

“It’s easy. Mad Max is the only one dancing to the beat of the ‘Resistance,’ and her album is about to go platinum,” Phillips wrote.

He’s not that wrong. The Democrats are being pulled radically to the left by numerous outside forces, most notably the pro-communist, pro-socialist, anti-Trump no matter what he does forces that have infested the party.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is being yanked to the left by an extremist challenger in actress Cynthia Nixon. Bernie Sanders gave the presumed heir to the Democrat throne, Clinton, a sustained headache in 2016. The California Democrat Party snubbed Sen. Dianne Feinstein by endorsing her opponent, Kevin de León, a Democrat who admitted that half of his family are illegal immigrants who secured false identification papers to avoid deportation.

And of course, we all know what happened recently when radical socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defeated New York Rep. Joe Crowley, ousting a powerful Democrat who was viewed as a potential option as the future speaker of the House.

Phillips cites Donald Trump’s own success in 2016 and an analogy to Michael Jackson’s music to claim Waters could surprise.

“Nope, the woman who is the biggest rock star with liberals right now is Auntie Maxine,” he wrote. “And since she gets their beat, they don’t care if her lyrics are profane or off key.”

In other words, establishment Democrats such as Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi may be trying to reign her in, but Waters’ radical embrace of everything anti-Trump and the calls to violence she is encouraging are being lapped up by a rabid base.

Waters, who would be 82 at the inauguration in 2021, has emerged as the ‘new face’ of a Democrat Party ill-equipped to cope with the stunning loss of the Presidency to Trump in 2016, and his successful attempts to “make America great again” ever since.

She perfectly reflects the state of their party. (RELATED: James Woods Responds to Rumors of Maxine Waters Replacing Pelosi).

From Mr. Phillips lips to God’s ears. Please, Democrats, keep putting Maxine Waters up on a pedestal within your party. We enjoy the winning.
