In the age of Trump, some Democrats have been reduced to spoiled children, unwilling to accept reality and refusing to work with others. No one embodies this pathetic spirit of the far left more than Maxine Waters.
During a recent hearing, she refused to acknowledge the legitimacy of Mick Mulvaney, Trump’s appointment to the CFPB.
The discord over the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau was made clear at a hearing on Wednesday.
Rep. Maxine Waters, the ranking Democrat on the House Financial Services Committee, told the CFPB’s interim director, Mick Mulvaney, that the fact she was asking him questions shouldn’t be viewed as an acknowledgment that she accepted him as the head of the agency.
That’s a reference to the dispute in which Leandra English, the deputy director, claimed she was the rightful person to lead the agency after the resignation of former director Richard Cordray, who’s running for governor in Ohio. President Donald Trump named Budget Director Mulvaney as interim director and hasn’t named a person to run the CFPB permanently.
“He was illegally appointed by President Trump in a move that blatantly contradicts the Dodd-Frank statute,” Waters said. Rep. Carolyn Maloney, a New York Democrat, made a similar comment.
A federal court has ruled otherwise.

Maxine Waters is a disgrace to her own office.
