Waters told MSNBC’s Reid on Sunday that she was surprised to see Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer criticize her calls to publicly harass Trump officials
(DailyCaller) Rep. Maxine Waters told MSNBC’s Joy Reid on Sunday that she was surprised to see Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer criticize her calls to publicly harass and confront Trump administration officials. His motivation, she believes, is to “protect” his leadership.
You know, I was surprised at Chuck Schumer, you know reached into the other house to do that, Waters told Reid when asked about criticism she received from her own party. I’ve not quite seen that done before. But one of the things I recognize, being an elected official, is in the final analysis, you know, leadership like Chuck Schumer’s will do anything that they think is necessary to protect their leadership.
What I have to do is not focus on them. I’ve got to keep the focus on the children and the fact that this administration is endangering children in the worst kind of way, she added.
No one should call for harassment of political opponents. That’s not right. That’s not American,” Schumer said of Waters last week.
Schumer was responding to Waters’ call for protesters to publicly confront Trump administration officials over President Trump’s border policy.
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, Waters said last week. “And you push back on them. Tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere!”
