Auntie Maxine fell for a prank call from Russian pranksters who were pretending to be climate change activist Greta Thunberg, and claimed to have dirt on President Donald Trump.
Popular YouTubers Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexey Stolyarov, known more simply as Vovan and Lexus, called the congresswoman’s office pretending to be Greta’s father and allowed their colleague to pretend to be Greta. They told Waters that they were “terrified” of what Trump is doing, and that she has “nightmares” of Trump after she “saw him in the hallway” and he told her that she will “never achieve [her] goals”.
Of course this really got Maxine going.
“He came over, he leaned towards me, and said softly, ‘Listen to me very carefully, little girl, you will never achieve your goals,’” fake Greta told Waters.
“He said you will never achieve your goals? Oh my goodness!” Waters gasps, and then asks fake Greta, “Oh my God did you cry?”
Fake Greta’s father then chimed, “He said to her, ‘You know, little girl, nobody believe you anyway, I will tell you the truth. I really pushed on Ukrainian president and you know that you will never achieve your goals like those congressional fools that accuse me.”
“Oh my God, he mentioned the Ukrainian president?” Waters freaks out again.
They claimed that they had the conversation recorded, and of course Waters immediately starts trying to make plans to meet up with them.
“Oh yes, I am absolutely still working — we are working very hard, we’re putting together the facts, and we’re going after him. We are going to try everything that we have to impeach him,” Waters added. “And if the public knew that he talked to Greta like that, he made her cry, and told her she would never achieve — this will go against him, too.”
“You bring it to me,” Waters demanded. “You tell me what day you can get there. And we’ll arrange to meet with you as quickly as we can.”
The Russian pranksters famous for tricking House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) into seeking nude pictures of President Donald Trump are claiming that they just got Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) — for a second time.
This is the second time the pranksters have purportedly tricked Waters. In February 2017, Vovan and Lexus posted a video where Vovan posed as the Prime Minister of Ukraine and discussed Russian sanctions with a woman who they identify as Waters.
