California Congresswoman Maxine Waters continued to take heat from members of her own party this week, with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer blasting her harsh anti-Trump rhetoric as “not American.”
The New York Senator slammed Waters’ comments on the Senate floor just hours after she called for the public harassment of top Trump officials at “gasoline stations” and “restaurants.”
“No one should call for the harassment of political opponents. That’s not right. That’s not American,” he said. “The president’s tactics and behavior should never be emulated. It should be repudiated by organized, well informed and passionate advocacy.”
Schumer’s comments echo similar statements made by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi Monday, who called Waters’ call-to-action completely “unacceptable.”
“Trump’s daily lack of civility has provoked responses that are predictable but unacceptable. As we go forward, we must conduct elections in a way that achieves unity from sea to shining sea,” she said.
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.

MAD MAXINE: Waters Predicts PRISON TIME for ‘KREMLIN KLAN’ in Bizarre Poem
Trump-hating congresswoman Maxine Waters strangely praised special counsel Robert Mueller’s months-long investigation of Russia-Trump collusion in a poem on social media this week, urging the prosecutor to “stay strong” until the eventual indictment of the “Kremlin Klan.”
The liberal legislator was venting on twitter Wednesday when she applauded Mueller’s never-ending probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election, saying, “Around you the Democrats are building a wall.”
“A message to Mueller: Stay strong and stand tall. Continue to investigate them all. You are indeed answering the people’s call. The Kremlin Klan is going to fall. Around you the Democrats are building a wall. We look forward to the day, to prison they will all be hauled,” she tweeted.

Waters is likely referring to recent Democratic efforts to block the Trump administration or GOP-controlled Congress’s ability to end Mueller’s probe; replacing the special counsel after widespread allegations of abuse and anti-Trump bias throughout the Department of Justice and FBI.
Mueller came under fire late last year, following reports that senior FBI agents sent blatantly anti-Trump text messages ahead of the 2016 election; going so far as to discuss the bureau’s “insurance policy” against a Trump presidency.
