Maxine Waters Starts Shouting Match with Republicans on House Floor

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) was spotted shouting at Republicans on the House floor during a ninth round of voting for House speaker.

Waters continued her outburst despite continued calls for order in the House.

"This is my 9th vote for Hakeem Jefferies," Waters stood up and said when it was her turn to vote before turning and pointing to a group of Republicans behind her, according to Fox News. "Matt Rosendale, get it together."

"Rosendale is one of 20 Republicans who have voted against GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy for House speaker through 11 rounds of balloting over three days. With the GOP's slim majority, McCarthy can only lose four members of his caucus," it added.

The wild events on the third day of voting for the next House speaker did not stop with the outburst by Waters.

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) decided to throw former President Donald Trump's name into the mix as McCarthy continued to struggle for votes.

"I'm formally nominating President Donald J. Trump for Speaker of the House," he tweeted.

"Make the House of Representatives Great Again!" he added.

The House continues at noon on Friday to begin its epic 11th round of votes for House speaker. Speculation has spread over deals being made by McCarthy, but so far no one if confident that there will be a quick end to the voting process.
