Congresswoman Maxine Waters defended her vicious rhetoric against Trump administration officials during a recent interview on MSNBC; saying she never actually told anyone to “go and fight.”
“As a matter of fact, if you look at the words that I used, the strongest thing I said was tell them they’re not welcome. ‘[I said] Talk to them. Tell them they’re not welcome.’ I didn’t say go and fight. I didn’t say anybody was going to have any violence. And so they can’t make that stick,” Waters told MSNBC.
The Congresswoman found herself in hot water after telling supporters to confront Trump supporters and members of his Cabinet at “gasoline stations” and “department stores.”
“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 in June 2018.
MAD MAXINE: Comey Has ‘No Credibility’… Except When Attacking Trump
Firebrand Congresswoman Maxine Waters raised eyebrows around the country Monday, doubling-down on her comments that James Comey “has no credibility” except when it comes to his outright attacks on President Trump.
Waters was speaking with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes when she was asked to clarify remarks she made after Comey re-opened Hillary Clinton’s email investigation ahead of the 2016 campaign; saying “the FBI director has no credibility.”

“That was during the transition. It was a briefing Comey gave to members of Congress. You and Donald Trump do agree on that,” said Hayes.
“Absolutely not. I tried to clarify that and to say: Yes, coming out of that clarified briefing I said that and I certainly meant it,” fired-back Waters. “However, I think that it’s quite different when you take a look at Comey and his relationship to the President.”
“What he’s said, what he’s done, I believe him,” she added. “Then is then, now is now.”

MAD MAXINE: Forget Impeachment, Waters Wants Trump to ‘JUST GET OUT’
Firebrand Congresswoman Maxine Waters backed-off her repeated demands that President Trump be impeached in Congress Wednesday; simply demanding the Commander-in-Chief “get out” of the Oval Office because he “doesn’t deserve to be there.”
Waters was speaking with reporters at the Time Magazine 100 Event when she was asked what “advice” she would offer to President Trump should they meet face-to-face.
“If you had to give some advice to President Trump, what advice would you give him?” asked one journalist.
“Please resign so that I won’t have to keep up this fight, of your having to be impeached,” fired-back Rep. Waters. “I don’t think you deserve to be there, just get out.”
