‘Mad Maxine’ incites more violence in another unhinged rant
During a speech in which she defended her previous calls for violence against members of the Trump administration, Rep. Maxine Waters ridiculed the controversy by boasting that she threatens the president’s supporters “all the time.”
Waters made the remarks while she was accepting the Hero Award from the Stonewall Young Democratic Club of Los Angeles.
While receiving the award, the California Congresswoman spoke about impeaching President Trump, despite attempts from senior Dems to downplay such discussion.
“Mad Maxine” also she was upset by California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein apologizing to Brett Kavanaugh for the protests that interrupted his confirmation hearings, saying: “We don’t ask permission to protest. We protest.”

RCP reports: The crowd seemed to love everything she was saying, cheering and clapping frequently.
“When we understand that we have to make America hear us and see us, and understand that we all have something to say,” Waters said, recalling the time she told supporters to confront Republicans in restaurants, gas stations, and restaurants.
“There are those who said we lacked civility when I got up and talked about the President’s Cabinet, and I said if you see them anywhere, if you see them at a restaurant, if you see them in a department store, even at a gasoline station, just tell them you’re not welcome here or anywhere,” she said to wild cheers.
“And so, it frightened a lot of people, and of course the lying president said that I had threatened all of his constituents,” Waters said.
“I did not threaten his constituents, his supporters. I do that all the time, but I didn’t do it that time.”
Referring to the Stonewall group she was addressing, Waters said, “When I compare what you’re doing with what we have in Washington, D.C., in the highest office in the land, I wake up in the middle of the night and all I can think about is: I’m gonna get him.’”
“I’m gonna get him. I’m gonna get him,” she repeated.
“I’m in this fight and I’m not gonna move,” she told the crowd.
“And, as you know, there’s a difference in how some of our leadership talk about how we should handle all of this.
“They say, ‘Maxine, please don’t say impeachment anymore.’
“And when they say that, I say impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, impeachment,” she said.
“I had a conversation here today with someone asked, ‘Well, what about Pence? If you are able to impeach, Pence will be worse,’” she recollected.
“Well, I said, ‘Look, one at a time.’
“You knock one down, one at a time,” she said.
“You knock one down, and we’ll be ready for Pence. We’ll get him, too,” she vowed.
