President Joe Biden recognized Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) during a visit to a Los Angeles construction site on Thursday. "Whatever Maxine says I agree with," Biden said.
Fortunately for Biden, the congresswoman was actually in attendance as opposed to being dead. Yet it's unclear if the president realized the implications of his comments, given that Waters is a boisterous radical known for her unhinged rhetoric. Earlier this year, for example, she imperiled democracy by threatening a journalist seeking comment about the time she told a bunch of homeless people to "go home" when they showed up to an event seeking Section 8 housing vouchers.
Fun fact: Waters is even older than Biden. She turned 84 in August.
