Ever since President Donald Trump was inaugurated in January, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) has been extremely outspoken in her criticism of the new Republican president, continually insisting that Trump will be impeached.

She regularly goes on cable news shows to demand Trump's removal from office, often times citing the alleged connection between Trump's presidential campaign last year and Russia — allegations that have thus far been unfounded and unsubstantiated with concrete evidence.

She even went as far as to lead an "impeach 45" chant at a Tax Day rally in Washington D.C., last month.

But the liberal darling known as "Auntie Maxine" received a dose of her own impeachment medicine over the weekend after signs calling for her impeachment appeared in the Los Angeles area, where her congressional district is located.

The signs appeared outside a town hall in the Inglewood neighborhood, according to KCBS-TV, which described the signs as "unflattering and racist."

Some of the signs mocked Waters while others stated facts about the political positions she holds.

One sign read in big letters, "IMPEACH MAXINE WATERS," while noting that she's a "race baiter," "old & out of touch" and a "poverty pimp."

Other signs simply trolled Waters:

According to KCBS, the town hall was filled mostly with Waters supporters, which isn't surprising given its a heavily Democratic district, while a few Trump supporters were escorted out of the event following a "disturbance."
