Maxine Waters: Trump Is the ‘Poster Boy’ for What a Mob Looks Like, He’s ‘Been Violent in His Speech.”
Rep. Maxine Waters goes off on President Trump and claims that he is the “poster boy” for what a mob looks like.
This was in response to Donald Trump’s tweet about liberal protesters.
The president called left-wing protesters an angry “mob” and pointed out how extreme and dangerous democrats have become.
You don’t hand matches to an arsonist, and you don’t give power to an angry left-wing mob. Democrats have become too EXTREME and TOO DANGEROUS to govern. Republicans believe in the rule of law – not the rule of the mob. VOTE REPUBLICAN!

Maxine Waters is the one who has encouraged protesters to harass those they don’t agree with on the right.
Not to mention the worst of the worst left-wing mobs, Antifa.
These left-wingers are the definition of extreme and dangerous. Watch what Waters says below:
Maxine Waters ranted, “Well, I think it’s absolutely ridiculous. It’s not believable. As a matter of fact, this country was built on peaceful protests. And those of us who were part of the Civil Rights movement, who understood the power of protest taught by Dr. Martin Luther King and others know that we cannot allow Donald Trump and anybody else to take protests away from us and to deem it to be violent and to try and make us look like a mob.
It is because of peaceful protests, not only in the Civil Rights movement, but the labor movement was able to get better wages, able to get better working conditions, able to get better pay, everything because they learned to march and protest. And they still do it today. We know that protest is guaranteed to a democratic society. We know that this is guaranteed to us by the Constitution.”
Waters continued to say that republicans were trying to change the description of a protest into a mob. She then says that Donald Trump is the one who is “violent in his speech.”
Mitch McConnell told The Washington Post that he wanted to “thank the mob” for reenergizing their base, a feat that they were having trouble with.
After the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh, McConnell commented that they were not going to let a mob of people intimidate them prior to the confirmation.
Waters turned the whole mob comment into “disrespect against women.” She thinks that these mob protests are “overdue” and that now is the time for women to let people know they’re “tired of being disrespected.”
