Conversely, Republicans and conservatives view Waters’ rhetoric quite differently and are not pleased. Many right-leaning Americans have asserted that were a Republican to talk of “taking out” Obama, the outrage would be endless. However, recent developments like the aforementioned seem to have conveyed a message that it is now acceptable to threaten the President of the United States.
Conservatives viewed Waters’ remarks as an assassination threat against the President. Many noted that the phrase “taking out” is heavily synonymous with ending someone’s life. A great percentage of Trump supporters have called for Secret Service to investigate Waters.
