Rep. Maxine Waters – You Better shoot straight, there’s nothing like a wounded animal.

At nearly 80-years-old, U.S. Representative Maxine Waters doesn't appear to show any signs of letting President Trump off the hook. During Saturday's immigration rally in Los Angeles, Rep. Waters, kept up the heat on President Trump. Auntie Maxine,” as she has been affectionately called since taking on Trump, said,

"How dare you? 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?"

Rep. Waters also addressed a series of recent death threats she said she has received.

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

She also said, “I know that 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 also said she has been getting harassed after she called for protesters to confront Trump administration officials in public over its "zero tolerance" immigration policy. She was forced to cancel a pair of events in Alabama and Texas this week after a “very serious death threat.”

Regarding Trump's inaccurately claims in which he tweeted that Rep. Waters called for protesters to harm his supporters, she said,

"As the President has continued to lie and falsely claim that I encouraged people to assault his supporters, while also offering a veiled threat that I should 'be careful', even more individuals are leaving (threatening) messages and sending hostile mail to my office."

Waters insisted that she was not calling for harm and said she believes in “peaceful protest.”
