Crazy or just stupid? Maxine Waters's claim that she didn’t call for Trump’s impeachment is too much even for MSNBC

Douche Bag Or Idiot?

What could possibly motivate Maxine Waters to claim twice that she never called for Donald Trump's impeachment when the video evidence is so compelling?  It is one thing for conservative websites to call her out, but even MSNBC, the broadcast leader in Trump-hatred, is taking notice of the absolute falsity of her claim.
Yesterday, in an on-air discussion among Hallie Jackson, Craig Melvin, and Mark Murray, the California congresswoman was explicitly called out for her denial of reality:
JACKSON: "... pretty strong words from somebody else on the other side of the aisle. Maxine Waters, right? The congresswoman [indecipherable] during that interview with Craig Melvin earlier in the week here on this network, but she seemed to back tracked off those called to impeach President Trump. Here's what she said."

WATERS: "Well I have not – I have not called for impeachment."
MELVIN: "You said, I'm going to fight every day until he's impeached. That's what you tweeted."
WATERS: "Yeah. But here is what I've said. Here is what I've said. I've said that we need the information. We need to connect the dots. We need the facts in order to do the impeachment."
[clip ends]
JACSKON: "So, Mark, she's become kind of a vocal voice for this impeachment call. And you heard what she just said. Is she splitting hairs?"
MURRAY: "More than splitting hairs, Hallie. Here's what she's actually tweeted in the past, saying that she's going to fight every day until he's impeached. Then you end up having another interview that she had where she said get ready for impeachment. And I believe we also have some sound of her using the 'I' word not too long ago."
[clip starts]
WATERS: "Impeach 45."
CROWD (chanting): "Impeach 45."
WATERS: "Impeach 45."
[clip ends]
MURRAY: "And, so, Hallie, you can be pretty clear that she has called for President Trump's impeachment there."
JACKSON: "I think that does clarify it, Mark, thank you."
