Trump just launched a despicable attack on Maxine Waters for speaking out about her death threats

- 11.14

The president of the United States continued his appalling smear campaign against Democratic Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) with a fresh flurry of tweets this morning, insulting her as “crazy” and “a wounded animal.”

His relentless efforts to paint her as the “FACE” of the Democratic Party is an obvious effort to inflame his more racist followers and to focus their obsessive hatred for black Americans on to the Democratic Party.

His efforts, however, have already been showing signs of dangerous and strange fruit. Maxine Waters was recently forced to cancel an event after receiving a credible death threat from a deranged racist – threats she receives on a regular basis and threats that will skyrocket if the president continues to demonize her and berate her.

Waters, for her part, has already made it clear she will NOT be intimidated and will not be backing down. At a rally on Saturday, she declared that “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. All I have to say is this, if you shoot me you better shoot straight, there’s nothing like a wounded animal.”

Bravo, Maxine. Keep up that fire – we’re going to need it in the coming months.
