Democrat Strategist: Maxine Waters Will Be House Speaker in 2018! (VIDEO)
In an appearance on FOX News Channel’s America’s News HQ Saturday morning, lawyer and Democrat strategist Robert Patillo told host Leland Vittert that Rep. Maxine Waters will be Speaker of the House in 2018.
Leland Vittert: “Robert, why do you think, or do you agree with the fact that the Democrats have seemed to have decided that it is much better to resit Trump, than it is to try to do what you were talking about, and work together and have some type of compromise?”
Robert Patillo: “Well, I think when Trump was elected, he tried to court the Republican establishment. That’s why he brought in Reince Priebus into the Oval Office. The appointment of Jeff Sessions. He tried to become the establishment Republican. Now that he’s seen that’s not working, Democrats looking at a President hovering around 30 percent approval ratings, have no reason to run into a burning building and try to put it out. Instead, they are waiting until 2018, when we’ll have Speaker of the House Maxine Waters and Senate Leader Chuck Schumer and then they’ll be able to control the government that way. As long as Trump is hovering around 30 percent approval ratings, and Republicans appear to be in chaos, there’s no reason to reach across the line.”
