Rep. Maxine Waters can’t help but dig a deeper and deeper hole for herself whenever the cameras are on.
On a recent interview with MSNBC’s Joy Reid, Waters bashed Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s decision to call her rant un-American.
“I was surprised that Chuck Schumer, you know, reached into the other house to do that," said Waters. “I’ve not quite seen that done before. But one of the things I recognize, being an elected official, is in the final analysis, you know, leadership will do anything that they think is necessary to protect their leadership."
See her full comments in the video below, as well as Sen. Schumer condemning Waters in front of Congress.
Last month, Sen. Maxine Waters (D-CA) unleashed a hate-filled speech outside the Wilshire Federal Building on Saturday.
Waters called for liberal supporters everywhere to harass members of Trump’s administration whenever they are seen in public.
Hear what she had to say in the video below.
“For these members of his Cabinet who remain and try to defend him, they are not going to be able to go to a restaurant, they are not going to be able to stop at a gas station, they aren't going to be able to shop in a department store,” Waters said.
“The people are going to turn on them, they are going to protest, they are going to absolutely harass them,” she concluded.
On Monday, Waters responded to her comments on MSNBC. “I did not call for harm for anybody,” said Waters. “The president lied again.”
“But let’s not talk about that. Let’s focus on the children. That’s what this is all about,” she continued. “It is about the fact that children have been snatched from their parents’ arms.”
“They don’t really say I’m out of line. What they do is try to find a way talk about civility without attacking me or anybody else as the leader of the Democratic Party,” Waters said.
