Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif, tweeted out a statement attempting to distance herself from supporters who burned an American flag outside her office last week.
Waters said the group of radical leftists protesting at her Los Angeles office turned out “not so much in support of me, but to seek press attention in furtherance of their own agendas.”

An American flag was burned at last week’s protest to protest a protest — specifically a planned protest by an Oath Keepers group.
Waters did post a tweet urging supporters to stay away from the Oath Keepers event, which never materialized.
But they showed up anyway, with unruly pro-Waters radicals out to support “Queen Maxine” setting fire to Old Glory and shouting “America was never great!” and “black power!”

Not only did the Democratic lawmaker distance herself from the demonstrators who hate America, she wrapped herself in the U.S. Constitution while doing so.
“While I do not agree with torching the flag as a form of protest, I understand the Constitution guarantees everyone the right to this form of free expression,” Waters said.
As BizPac Review previously reported, Maxine Waters incited liberals to harass and intimidate Trump aides, not allowing them to eat or do anything in public without being bullied by an angry mob.
The one consistency in all madness is the desire by social media users who support President Donald Trump for Waters to keep stoking the unhinged behavior, as it all but assures 4 more years.
Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
I sure hope they keep you around because with you being there Trump doesn`t have a worry in this world in getting four more years………..lol

It is my firm belief that these violent “counterprotesters” destroy the power of peaceful protest. These violent people should be regarded as the enemies of democracy and good. They are no different from the Nazis. Protest for good must be peaceful or else they become evil.

Rep Waters has little to no clue about the Oath Keepers organization. The ignorant remarks included in this statement, are but yet another call to incite uproar amongst the citizens that blindly follow such poor representation.

I don’t need to read anything your lawyer wrote. Your heart has been showing us where you stand, it’s no secret.

So you are saying that it was fake news when it shows people burning the USA flag??? And then you respect their rights to free speech to do this? Ok???

What she's really saying is,"Oops I was caught allowing this to happen." I mean seriously who let's a group like this protest outside their office?? If there wasn't a video she wouldn't have issued a statement! If she really cared it wouldn't take a week to condone it! 🇺🇲#MAGA https://t.co/OWhbwUacwm
