‘I’m driving right now but I’m like really heated all of a sudden,’ she begins, ‘I am so sick of these politicians in this god damned state, they’re all worried about what Trump is doing. How about we worry about what the hell you’re doing?
‘Maxine Waters, what have you done? You’re talking about, oh this thing at the border, it’s a political ploy that Trump’s done. Where are you? You’re not even here!’
Babbit, growing more irate, then calls out a host of other elected officials in the Golden State, including Kamala Harris, telling them she was ‘putting you all on notice’.
