Democratic Senator Tom Udall left most Americans scratching their heads Monday night; bizarrely blaming Maxine Waters’ anti-Trump rhetoric on the President himself.
Udall was speaking with CNN when he was asked to comment on Waters’ comments where she urged her supporters to publicly harass senior Cabinet members in “restaurants” and “department stores.”
“If you look at the history of the country, we’ve had some very negative, tough periods, and the president sets the tone. The president here is setting a very negative tone. I think he should cut that out,” said the liberal lawmaker.
“You can see what happens over and over again if anybody challenges him, he’s a big bully and ramps it up four or five times, and so it makes it difficult for us in Congress to try to come together and be civil,” Udall added.

MAD MAXINE: Waters Calls for ‘PUBLIC HARASSMENT’ of Trump Cabinet Members
Firebrand Congresswoman Maxine Waters called for the “public harassment” of senior Trump aides over the weekend; urging her supporters to “push back” against the President’s cabinet members at “restaurants” and “gas stations.”
The liberal lawmaker was addressing a crowd of supporters when she unleashed on top Trump staffers, telling left-wing activists across the country to let them know “they’re not welcome anywhere.”
“And so, let’s stay the course. 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, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” screamed the Congresswoman.

TROUBLED WATERS: GOP Introduces Legislation to CENSURE Maxine, Urge Resignation
Republican lawmakers introduced legislation Tuesday to officially censure Rep. Maxine Waters and call for her resignation; a major step towards punishing the firebrand liberal after she urged supporters to harass Trump officials.
Rep. Andy Biggs of Arizona sponsored the bill, demanding Waters apologize for her harsh rhetoric and adding her comments could lead to physical violence and personal danger for Cabinet members and their families.
“Representative Waters comments could directly and unnecessarily lead to public unrest, physical violence, and physical injury,” said the resolution, adding Waters’ remarks “do not contribute anything positive to the public dialogue.”
The California congressman made national headlines this week after she urged her supporters to harass Trump aides at “gas stations” and “department stores” over his immigration policies.
“Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. 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,” she said.
