I really do think this woman is deranged. She plainly called for harassment of political opponents through threats, intimidation and violence, but claims with a straight face that Trump was a threat to democracy.
What do you get when you mix gaslighting, hypocrisy, and a smattering of insanity? You get Rep. Maxine Waters’ (D-CA) Sunday morning appearance on MSNBC in which she claimed to be as innocent as a dove when it comes to inciting violence with her rhetoric. Waters participated in an interview with MSNBC’s Ali Velshi, who, surprisingly enough, confronted her on comments she made in 2018 about members of Trump’s cabinet. In light of the fact that the team of lawyers defending former President Donald Trump during the impeachment trial planned to use footage of Waters and other members of Congress calling for violence, he questioned whether or not her remarks constituted incitement to violence. Video footage shows the lawmaker saying: “Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up, and if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out, and you create a crowd, and you push back on them. You tell them that they’re not welcome anymore anywhere! We’ve got to get the children connected to their parents. The children are suffering.”‘Mad’ Maxine Waters Falsely Claims She ‘Never Glorified Or Encouraged Violence’ Against Trump Allies Even After Seeing Video
