Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) went after President Trump on Wednesday night, calling him a “disgusting, poor excuse of a man” and saying, “I want him impeached.”

Waters was speaking at a gala held by EMILY’s List, a PAC that aims to help elect female Democrats who support abortion rights. During her address, the frequent Trump critic railed against his policies, calling on young people to step up and resist.

“We must take our anger, our pain, our collective strength to right this wrong, to resist this tyranny and to save our democracy from a man whose immoral character and distorted thinking are an imminent threat to our nation,” she said. 

Waters called Trump a “disgusting, poor excuse of a man” and slammed his Cabinet as “ill-prepared, right-wing billionaires.”

Waters also called for Trump’s impeachment, after saying she didn’t like using the term.

“I am not a fan of the word impeach, but I want him impeached. That’s what he deserves,” she said, reiterating a call she's made often since Trump's inauguration. 

Waters has emerged as a frequent critic of Trump and his policies.
