Maxine Waters is digging a hole so deep she may never see the light of day again.
In an outrageous interview with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, Waters categorically denied that she engaged in inflammatory rhetoric aimed at harassing Trump administration officials.
“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,” Waters had riled a crowd on Saturday. She doubled down on that sentiment over the weekend in a NBC interview when she said (emphasis added): “The people are going to turn on them. They’re going to protest. They’re absolutely going to harass them until they decide that they’re going to tell the president, ‘No, I can’t hang with you.’ This is wrong.'”
Hayes, clearly on Waters’ side, explained that President Trump “lied” when he responded harshly to her inflammatory rhetoric.
Congresswoman Maxine Waters, an extraordinarily low IQ person, has become, together with Nancy Pelosi, the Face of the Democrat Party. She has just called for harm to supporters, of which there are many, of the Make America Great Again movement. Be careful what you wish for Max!

“You did not call for physical harm, or attacks on people,” Hayes started. “But, you did say create a crowd and pushback on them.”
He then asked her if she was “worried” that people would somehow interpret that she was calling for mob-like behavior and intimidation.
“You’re absolutely correct, ” Waters said. “I did not call for harm for anybody. The president lied again. As a matter of fact, I believe in peaceful protests. I believe that protest is at the centerpiece of our democracy. They believe the Constitution guarantees us freedom of speech. And I think that protest is civil protest. And so I don’t know why the president chose to stretch that out and try to imply that I was causing harm.”
She went on to say that President Trump was the one to call for violence — “more violence than anybody else. But let’s not talk about that. Let’s focus on the children.””
Waters tried to claim that she was only concerned for the illegal immigrant children that had been temporarily separated from their parents who used them to enter the U.S. illegally.
Despite the “children in cages” outrage that occurred under the Obama administration along with most of the stories of illegal immigrant family separations, the Democrats remain focused on carrying this torch to midterms.
Waters came “prepared” with a list of times she said Trump had called for violence.
“Listen to some of his statements during his campaign and since he’s been president,” Waters said.
“’I’d like to punch him in the face,'” Waters recalled. “Another violent statement — ‘I’d like to knock the crap out of them,” Waters quoted.
Hayes was quick to cover for Waters stating that the Calif. Rep wasn’t playing a game of tit-for-tat, but merely pointing out Trump’s past remarks.
Numerous Trump officials and allies have been targeted in public by angry mobs. Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was asked to leave the Red Hen restaurant in Virginia, and was reportedly stalked by the Hen staff when her party went to another location to dine. DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was forced from a D.C. restaurant when an angry mob started screaming at her.
Perhaps, the scariest recent act of intimidation was against Florida’s AG Pam Bondi. She claimed that three men got in her face (one spit on her) and began screaming at her while attending of a screening of Mr. Rogers. Bondi said she would not be driven away, but was again screamed at as she left the theater.
