Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters, the same woman who has tirelessly hated on President Trump by calling for his impeachment and has most recently called for the continued harassment of Trump cabinet members has had to cancel two separate events due to death threats.
We’ll give you three guesses who she’s pointing the finger at for the craziness she’s enduring, but the chances are high you won’t need two of them.
Ready for the answer?
Yes, that’s right. Donald Trump. Because why not?
“As the President has continued to lie and falsely claim that I encouraged people to assault his supporters, while also offering a veiled threat that I should ‘be careful’, even more individuals are leaving (threatening) messages and sending hostile mail to my office,” she said in a statement reported by CNN.Trending:
“There was one very serious death threat made against me on Monday from an individual in Texas which is why my planned speaking engagements in Texas and Alabama were cancelled (sic) this weekend,” she continued. “This is just one in several very serious threats the United States Capitol Police are investigating in which individuals threatened to shoot, lynch, or cause me serious bodily harm.”
U.S. Capitol Police have provided no further details as they do not comment on ongoing investigations.
Last weekend, Waters found herself the talk of the town after making controversial statements in support of “protesters” coming out of the woodwork to harass members of Trump’s administration. Waters celebrated gleefully when Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was asked to leave a restaurant because of her affiliation with President Trump.
The same sort of treatment was also given to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen who was harassed at a Mexican restaurant until she was forced to leave, all due to her support of the president’s enforcement of current U.S. immigration policy.
While there is absolutely no excuse for ever making a death threat against another human being, is it really all that surprising that some nutcase out there would take this route? Waters is practically throwing gasoline on the fire of an already explosive political climate and strangely has the expectation that she won’t get burned in some way.
Both sides need to chill out the rhetoric and learn to converse with one another like regular, decent human beings. It’s really not that difficult, but with the way Waters struggles to treat folks with respect, you’d think it was tougher than moving mountains.
