Saturday during a speech at an immigration rally in California, U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters reacted defiantly to alleged threats reportedly directed at her. This follows her previous remarks about the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy.
One of the many rallies staged across the country, Waters took the podium at the Families Belong Together rally in downtown Los Angeles where she urged for the reunification of families who were separated at the U.S.-Mexico border.
She told the crowd that she has “no fear” and is “in this fight” after saying some congressional lawmakers felt “intimidated.”
She told the crowd, “And I know that there are those who are talking about censuring me, talking about kicking me out of Congress, talking about shooting me, talking about hanging me. All I have to say is this, if you shoot me, you better shoot straight. There’s nothing like a wounded animal.”
She called herself an animal but that would be only if she were shot. Will she get shot?
Waters said that she was willing “to make whatever sacrifices” were necessary and added, “I am not about to let this country go by the way of Donald Trump. We are sick and tired of him. He’s been there too long. They dare me to say ‘Impeach him.’ Today I say, ‘Impeach 45.’”
Her remarks came after she encouraged her supporters to fight back against the White House last month. This came as a result of a controversial immigration policy that ultimately led to the separation of migrant children from their parents after crossing the border.
President Donald Trump tweeted on Wednesday:
Congratulations to Maxine Waters, whose crazy rants have made her, together with Nancy Pelosi, the unhinged FACE of the Democrat Party. Together, they will Make America Weak Again! But have no fear, America is now stronger than ever before, and I’m not going anywhere!

Waters was featured in a campaign ad posted online by the Republican National Committee that criticized the political left as being “unhinged.”
Okay, Mad Max is certainly unhinged.
Previously Waters said that current administration officials who defend Trump “know what they’re doing is wrong.”
She said soon they won’t be able to peacefully appear in public without being harassed.
She had said, “They’re not going to be able to go to a restaurant, they’re not going to be able to stop at a gas station, they’re not going to be able to shop at a department store. The people are going to turn on them, they’re going to protest, they’re going to absolutely harass them.”
Those are words of a mad woman; hence the new nickname of Mad Max.
She has made similar comments at a Los Angeles rally. She told supporters that she wanted “history to record that we stood up that we pushed back that we fought that we did not consider ourselves victims of this president.”
Victims? President Trump has done nothing but good for America. How are we victims?
Following her remarks, Waters had to call off scheduled appearances in Texas and Alabama. Various threats were allegedly made at her.
On Saturday, Waters reportedly told radio station KPFK-FM that organizers of the events “didn’t have all of our security in order and organized for those two trips, but we’ve got it together now.”
She told the station, “We’re going on with our schedule, and we’re going to keep talking about this president and his policies, and we’re going to keep fighting for these children and their parents and these families.”
Well golly, gee whiz, I sure hope she has enough security! People are pretty angry at her comments. It would be a shame if she got shot and became an animal. Wait…she’s already an animal, in my humble opinion.
