Democrat Maxine Waters is currently facing bipartisan condemnation after publicly calling for the harassment of Trump administration officials. Republican leaders have even called for the California congresswoman to resign from office, reports The Hill.
An Overview of Waters’ Statement and Subsequent Calls for Her Resignation
Maxine Waters truly kicked a hornet’s nest during this past weekend. In Los Angeles, California, she delivered the following statements to a group of cheering supporters:
“If you think we’re rallying now you ain’t seen nothing yet. 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, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.“
Waters incendiary calls for harassment against Trump officials comes after DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielson faced heckling while dining at a Mexican restaurant and leaving her home. The foregoing statements moreover followed White House press secretary Sarah Sanders being asked to leave a Virginia-based Red Hen restaurant due to her work for President Trump.
