Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) called President Trump a "bum & a disgrace" in a tweet Saturday, agreeing with NBA star LeBron James's earlier comments bashing Trump.

"Thank you @jemelehill & @KingJames! Speak truth to power. Trump is a bum & a disgrace & it's never too early to get ready for impeachment," Waters tweeted.

Waters's tweet came after James called Trump a "bum" over the president's announcement that fellow NBA player Stephen Curry was no longer welcome at the White House.

Trump had tweeted that he was rescinding the White House invitation to Curry after the Golden State Warriors point guard said Friday he would not attend the White House to celebrate his team's championship victory over James's Cleveland Cavaliers. 

Curry also said that the rest of the Warriors should not attend the traditional White House celebration, saying, “We basically don’t stand for what our president has said, and the things he hasn’t said at the right time."

Waters has repeatedly called for Trump's impeachment and resignation throughout his presidency. On Friday, Waters said that she could "guarantee" that Trump had colluded with Russians, and was actively obstructing justice and attempting to undermine American democracy.
