Maxine Waters has once again found a way to gain attention. This time she was at a protest addressing the border issue and the many Death Threats she gets, as she clearly rubs people the wrong way. But she didn’t let that get in the way of her usual Trump bashing. It instead empowered her to feel the need that everyone knew how much she disliked Trump.
“Donald Trump you think you can get away with everything, but you have gone too far when you are trying to break up families in the way that you do. I don’t care whether you are Democrat or Republican. I don’t care what nationality you are. I don’t care what ethnic group you are. We all love the children and we are going to stand by them.”
Aside from her Trump sentiment, there is nothing wrong with her statement except that it’s all talk. If she were really about the children then she would be pushing her fellow Democrats to get on board with Republican Immigration bills, instead, this is just a front.
“We are saying to you that The Constitution of the United States of America gives us the right to protest, and protest we will.”
But what good is a protest that has the wrong target?
She later addressed threats that she has received.
“And I know that there are those who are talking about censuring me, talking about kicking me out of Congress, talking about shooting me, talking about hanging me,” Waters said during an immigration rally. “All I have to say is this, if you shoot me you better shoot straight, there’s nothing like a wounded animal. I am prepared to make whatever sacrifices need to be made. I am not about to let this country go the way of Donald Trump.”
This is ridiculous Trump has made an executive order to keep illegal immigrant families together. But that is not enough. Congressman, like Maxine Waters, need to start doing their jobs regardless of political affiliation. Instead of talking for the sake of talking.
