The NBC News Twitter account posted a montage of tough statements from Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) on Monday evening, writing she "isn't afraid to say what's on her mind."
Waters is a vocal opponent of President Donald Trump who has won accolades from the left with her constant calls for impeachment, "connecting the dots" in the Russia investigation, and her invective against members of the Trump administration. She has called his team "scumbags" and said Trump is the "most deplorable person I have ever met in my life."

Along with her exchange with Mnuchin, the montage includes Waters' attacks on the Trump administration, her criticism of President George H. W. Bush at the 1992 Democratic National Convention, and her recent statement on "The View" that she's running for Trump's impeachment.
Curiously, NBC News elected not to use a clip from one of its own reporters' interactions with Waters, where she was pressed by Peter Alexander on MSNBC about her inconsistency about the firing of FBI Director James Comey.
The montage also did not include a clip of NBC's Craig Melvin reacting in disbelief when she falsely claimed she had "not called for impeachment" of Trump. In fact, she had done so many times before, and has done so many times since.
Waters has previously been named one of the "most corrupt members of Congress" by the left-leaning group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW).
