Maxine Waters is trying to rewrite history.
During a recent appearance on MSNBC, she was asked if she can say that she never urged violence against Trump supporters. She insisted that she never did.
That’s a lie. We have all seen the video of her urging mob violence against Trump supporters.
FOX News reports:
Maxine Waters tries walking back violent rhetoric against Trump
Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., has publically denied encouraging supporters to confront and harass members of the Trump administration.
The California Democrat was asked whether she ever “glorified or encouraged” violence against Republicans in a Sunday interview with MSNBC’s Ali Velshi.
“As a matter of fact, if you look at the words that I used, the strongest thing I said was tell them they’re not welcome,” Watters claimed. “[I said] Talk to them. Tell them they’re not welcome. I didn’t say go and fight. I didn’t say anybody was going to have any violence. And so they can’t make that stick.”
Watters came under fire in 2018 for telling the same network that she had “no sympathy” for administration officials who defended Trump’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy, and urged her supporters to “absolutely harass them” when appearing in public.

Who does she think she’s fooling?
Does she think no one saw this?
The same Maxine Waters that went on Joy Reid's show to offer a venomous screed about how Republicans exist to threaten her life said this, calling for harassment and violence against Trump officials in June 2018.
It's safe to say Joy Reid also supported that. pic.twitter.com/QITIOy8bz5

It’s amazing that she thinks anyone is buying her spin now.
