'Be Careful What You Wish For Max!': Trump Threatens Rep. Waters

Donald Trump. our domestic political abuser, has just laid down a threat to an elected African-American representative of the United States.
'Be Careful What You Wish For Max!': Trump Threatens Rep. Waters

Our national political abuser is ramping up the rhetoric and threats:

I do not ordinarily make an issue out of Trump's tweets, but this one is serious and it is the equivalent of an official directive from the White House threatening an elected representative who also happens to be African-American.

To review here, Rep. Maxine Waters did not call for violence against anyone. She quite specifically called for social shunning of Cabinet members. Here are her exact words:

“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.”

So. Specifically directed toward someone in Trump's cabinet who is actively wrecking this country being held accountable, not your average run of the mill white supremacist MAGA. Please take note that there is no "harm," only shame, which every single Republican should wear like a scarlet letter for enabling this despot to continue wrecking the country.

I view this tweet as a threat. You should too. So too should Maxine Waters, particularly since he is playing to his sneering, racist base.

You should report it to Twitter as abusive.

It is a mob-style threat from a mobster. We cannot get this man out of office soon enough.
