Maxine Waters to Haters: You Better Shoot Straight

Rep. Maxine Waters may be affectionately referred to as “Auntie Maxine” by her supporters, but she is not a force to be reckoned with.


She has recently received a barrage of threats after exercising her First Amendment right to speak out against the president and his hateful policies. Her response to the violence Do your worst.

“If you shoot me, you better shoot straight,” she said over the weekend. “There’s nothing like a wounded animal.”

Waters made the remarks at a Families Belong Together rally in Los Angeles.

Trump previously said Waters needs to “Be careful” and falsely claimed that Waters encouraged people to harm his supporters:

That same day, the congresswoman said she received “several very serious threats,” leading to her cancelling two events in Alabama and Texas last week.

But over the weekend, Waters refused to back down.

She revived her previous calls for the president to be impeached and slammed him for his “zero tolerance” immigration policy that has left families ripped apart at the border.

“How dare you” she said at the rally. “How dare you take the babies from mothers’ arms How dare you take the children and send them all across the country into so-called detention centers”

This time, Waters said, Trump has gone “too far.”

“I don’t care whether you’re a 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,” she said. “This country belongs to all of this.”
