It turns out that Congresswoman Maxine Waters can’t stand the taste of her own medicine.
In the most hilarious case of pot calling kettle black, Maxine Waters is now complaining about being confronted by Trump supporters, after she herself called on her supporters to harass, confront, and attack Trump supporters and members of the Trump administration in public.
In June, Waters told a mob of rabid leftists in California, “”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’ comments sparked an enormous amount of outrage and criticism, propelling her into the National spotlight for weeks as pundits, politicians, and political commentators used her comments as the foundation for a conversation about civility, or the lack of in the current political landscape.
Just days after her comments, Waters was confronted on Capitol Hill by investigative journalist Laura Loomer in an encounter that was caught on camera and instantly went viral.
When Loomer confronted Waters, Waters swatted Loomer in the face with paper, prompting Loomer to file a police report with the Capitol Police and press charges against the Congresswoman.
Following Waters’ remarks, President Trump turned to Twitter where he declared that Waters, “an extremely low IQ person”, had become the “Face of the Democrat party”.
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!

When the Oath Keepers announced that they would be protesting Waters outside of her Los Angeles Congressional office, Waters issued a statement opposing the planned protest, calling the group an “anti-government militia” and accused the group of having a “history of engaging in violent and provocative behavior”.

However, on the day of the protest, the Oath Keepers were nowhere to be found outside of Waters’ office. Instead, a group of counter protesters who support Waters did show up to confront the Oath Keepers. When the Oath Keepers didn’t show up, counter protesters and supporters of Waters began burning the American flag and proceeded to attack a Conservative independent journalist.
There was no protest outside Maxine Waters office today. A group called #oathkeepers did not show up. Some counter protestors who came to support Waters burned an American flag in the street. #maxinewaters #flagburning #flag pic.twitter.com/pafH7nJrWL

In the end, the only people who “engaged in violent and provocative behavior” outside of the Congresswoman’s office, including burning the American flag and assaulting an Independent journalist from “Slightly Offensive” were Maxine Waters’ own supporters. Democrats.
