Democrats are completely outraged over a fake quote from Democratic California Rep. Maxine Waters. A Twitter troll replaced Waters’ original tweet that targeted Trump administration staffers with Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Democrats took the bait and called Waters’ words “dangerous” and many said it was “inciting violence.”POLL: What scares u the most?
In June 2018, Waters delivered a fiery speech where she called for members of the “Resistance” to harass staffers of the Trump administration.
“History will record while he tried to step on all of us, we kicked him in his rear and step on him,” Waters bellowed. “If you think we’re rallying now, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet!”
“Already, you have members of your Cabinet that are being booed out of restaurants…who have protesters taking up at their house, who say, ‘No peace, no sleep! No peace, no sleep!” Waters said, referencing Trump’s former Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen being intimidated by socialists at a Mexican restaurant.
“God is on our side,” Waters proclaimed. “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,” she yelled to rile the crowd into a frenzy.
Waters then zeroed in on then-President Donald Trump, “Mr. President, we will see you every day, every hour of the day, everywhere that we are to let you know you cannot get away with this!”
