Maxine Waters just defied death threats to speak at LA Families Belong Together March [WATCH]

- 17.52

Maxine Waters appeared completely unbowed today as she spoke at the Los Angeles “Families Belong Together” march, despite receiving multiple death threats for comments she made urging Democrats to continue publicly shaming Trump administration officials for the actions that were the very reason for the marches across the country.

The threats against Rep. Waters started after President Trump singled out the congresswoman as a target in one his many deranged and personally vicious tweets earlier this week.

After lying about the non-violent nature of what Waters was advocating confronting Trump enablers with, Trump’s final line was seen by many as a threat and a dog whistle to his followers, his “Second Amendment people,” as he called them when he used a similar threat against Hillary Clinton.

Trump attacked Waters a second time a couple of days later in a tweet with a final sentence that was even more threatening in many people’s eyes.

In Los Angeles, Representative Waters remained fearless in the face of the death threats she’s received since she made it to Trump’s list of enemies which had already forced the cancellation of speaking engagements in Texas and Alabama this week.

Congresswoman Waters directly addressed those who would threaten to kill her in her speech at the march.

“I know there are those who are talking about censuring me, talking about kicking me out of Congress, talking about shooting me, talking about hanging me,” she said.

“All I have to say is this: if you shoot me you better shoot straight, there’s nothing like a wounded animal,” Waters warned.
