Meghan McCain Rips Maxine Waters: Don’t Give Me That ‘When They Go Low, We Go High’ Lip Service Ever Again
The View‘s Meghan McCain is speaking out after Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) called on rally-goers to tell members of Trump’s cabinet “they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”
“I want to tell you, these members of his cabinet who remain and try to defend him, they won’t be able to go to a restaurant, they won’t be able to stop at a gas station, they’re not going to be able to shop at a department store. The people are going to turn on them,” Waters said during an MSNBC interview on Saturday.
The Congresswoman also made similar remarks during a Keep Families Together rally in California, telling the crowd not to relent.
“If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” she said.
In response, McCain called that kind of talk “extremely dangerous.”
“This is absolutely insane – and extremely dangerous,” McCain tweeted out, sharing a video of Waters’ remarks at the Keep Families Together rally. “My father in law works in the administration, does this mean when we go out to dinner we should be ambushed?!? Don’t ever again give me any of the “when they go low, we go high” lip service.”

Earlier this week, Nielsen was heckled at a Mexican restaurant, something Waters referenced in her rally speech.

Waters’ comments also came on the same weekend as White House press secretary Sarah Sanders tweeted out that she was asked to leave a Virginia restaurant because she worked for Trump.
The owner of the Red Hen spoke to The Washington Post about giving the boot to Sanders and said that she would do it again.
