Like Schiff, Waters Falls for Anti-Trump Hoax

Like Schiff, Waters Falls for Anti-Trump Hoax

Written by  

Representative Maxine “Mad Max” Waters (D-Calif.) has never been the president’s most level-headed opponent.

As delusional as an escapee from Bedlam, she has called for the public harassment of Trump supporters and officials and began barking about impeachment, not even a month after he was inaugurated.

Now, we learn, she can’t discern fact from fiction. Last week, she was hoaxed by the same two Russian radio pranksters who fooled another hate-Trump Democrat, Adam Schiff.

They pretended to be Greta Thunberg and her father, Svante. Greta, of course, is the unbalanced schoolgirl who, pretending to be an adult “climate activist,” travels the world crying on cue.

The Russian radio jocks claimed to have Trump on tape admitting to an impeachable offense.

The Call

Russian pranksters Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexei Stolyarov opened the call with young “Greta” asking about Waters’ nickname, Auntie Maxine, and the congresswoman’s telling her she has “made quite a big, big, big, big thunder on this issue. I am really, really very proud of you and the work that you’re doing.”

Greta’s father, “Svante,” tells Waters the two are at a “climate strike” meeting in North Carolina, and “Greta” invites Maxine to address the attendees by speakerphone.

“I think it will be great honors for them to hear you,” Greta says, noting that Waters can talk about the climate strikers’ work to save the island of “Chon-go-Chango.”

Says Waters, “hello everybody, this is congresswoman Maxine Waters, and I am so pleased to be on this telephone call with Greta Thunberg. I am just so proud of her and her father … and the work that they are doing.”

About halfway through the prank, the hoaxsters tell Waters they have a recording of Trump.

“I want to tell you something confidential about the meeting of Greta and Trump in the U.N. climate meeting,” the father says.

“It was really terrible,” Greta says. “I’m terrified of what Trump’s doing and I even can’t sleep or eat when I see him on TV. And it was a really terrible meeting in the U.N. building in September with him and I had nightmares afterward. It’s terrible.”

Then the conversation gets even more absurd.

Greta: I saw him in the hallway. He was with security. I shouted at him, “sign the Paris climate agreement again.” He came over, he leaned towards me, and said softly, “Listen to me carefully, little girl, you will never achieve your goals like those congressional fools who try to accuse me.”

Waters: He said you will never achieve your goal… Oh my goodness. Did you ask him if he would rethink signing the Paris agreement, was that your question to him?”

Greta: Yes, yes, he added that and “you know what, and I will tell you the truth, anyway, I really wanted to push the Ukraine president to put my competitor on trial. And he will go to trial with you, with your bunch of ecology and Democrats. I would have a separate cage for all of you.” I was crying.

Waters: “Oh, my God. Did you cry?

Greta: “Yes, I was crying. And even I cry now because is very hard to remember this.”

Svante adds that Trump said no one would believe her story, and again, that Trump admitted pushing Ukraine’s president to put Joe Biden on trial.

“Oh my gosh, he mentioned the Ukrainian president?”

After “Svante” tells Waters he has the exchange on tape, the congresswoman invites the pair to Washington for a meeting, presumably to get evidence that Trump pushed Ukraine to interfere in the 2020 election on Trump’s behalf by putting Joe Biden on “trial” for the Biden-Burisma influence-peddling scandal.

Schiff’s Need For Nude Trump Photos

Waters isn’t the only gullible Democrat. In 2018, the pair hoaxed Schiff by posing as Andriy Parubiy, the former speaker of Ukraine’s parliament.

They asked Schiff if he was interested in nude photos of the president with Russian singer Olga Buzova.

“So, you have … compromising material on Mr. Trump?” the credulous congressman asked.

“Absolutely,” came the reply.

Schiff promised to bring in the FBI on the matter.

Question: If anti-Trump Democrats are so divorced from reality that they believe anyone who knocks at their door with obviously bogus claims, how reliably can they judge “whistleblowers” with a history of anti-Trump animus or an anti-Trump ax to grind?
