Top Trump Official Humiliates Maxine Waters During House Hearing

It’s been a while since we’ve been able to point out Rep. Maxine Waters making a fool of herself, which she seems to get better at as the weeks go by.

During an otherwise boring House hearing, Waters revealed that she apparently skipped a day of class in how American Government works, but Mick Mulvaney — one of President Trump’s top guys — quickly took her to school…

DailyCaller reports:

Consumer Financial Protection Bureau director Mick Mulvaney educated Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters on the purpose of separation of powers during a Wednesday hearing.

When Mulvaney testified in front of the House Committee on Financial Services on Wednesday, Waters asked him why people should trust him to run the CFPB when he was previously sponsored legislation to get rid of that bureau.

During her line of questioning, Waters insisted that she and her colleagues were responsible for implementing Dodd Frank financial regulations.

“With respect, congresswoman, I would say that I am the one for responsible for implementing Dodd Frank, not you,” Mulvaney retorted. “You were responsible for passing legislation and then the executive branch implements it.”

“I have not burnt the place down,” he continued. “Despite what you may have heard about what I was going to do when I got in there — I think that we have ten fewer people working there now than the day I took over, and that’s out of 1627 people.”

Waters was not thrilled with Mulvaney’s government lesson or his insistence that he was not destroying the CFPB, and cut off his answer.

“I’m reclaiming my time,” Waters declared. “Let me just say to you that you couldn’t implement a thing unless, first of all, there was legislation that was passed to deal with what you’re doing, and second, we have responsibility for the oversight of your implementation.”

    Maxine Waters is a light weight nit wit. The CFPB is a totally unnecessary bureaucracy that has made a morass out of the mortgage business. I have refinanced my primary home twice in the past 18 years, including last month. The most recent transaction, under CFPB rules, was a HUMONGOUS burden on the consumer! At least 5 times as much paperwork, an hour signing paper after paper after paper. And to top it all off, the CFPB has issued rules that DEFY the English language!!! My wife was a “non-borrowing spouse” but she was identified as a “borrower” on virtually everything but the actual loan contract. Why? Because CFPB rules required it. This was the most idiotic, frustrating experience I have ever had!!!
