Video from the Ali Forney Center gala in New York City on October 13th was recently posted on YouTube, and it captures a moment where Rep. Maxine Waters makes a threatening statement directed at President Trump.
In the video, which is posted below, Waters is seen making the following speech which ends with a major threat:
“Wow, what a moving evening this is. I’m sitting here listening, watching, absorbing, thinking about Ali even though I never met him. And with this kind of inspiration, I will go and take out Trump tonight.”
The crowd went wild after Waters makes the threat and pumps her fists. Here is the leaked video:
Waters is known as one of the major leaders of the resist-Trump movement. And comments such as these have been met with severe criticism after Senator Scalise was shot at a baseball practice for an annual bi-partisan baseball game.
It also will likely be majorly frowned upon because it is a direct threat to our Commander-In-Chief. Such threats are never taken lightly, especially when made by an elected official such as Maxine Waters as it can be interpreted as assassination.
Just months ago we saw a like situation when Missouri state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal openly hoped for Trump’s assassination. She was condemned by both sides of the aisle, censured and still can be removed from her post.
We shall see in coming days what kind of backlash, if any, Maxine Waters gets for making such a statement.
