Trump Responds to Maxine Waters Encouraging Harassment of Officials: ‘Be Careful What You Wish For’
President Donald Trump has now responded to Congresswoman Maxine Waters encouraging more public harassment of Trump administration officials.
Over the weekend, Waters said, “For these members of his Cabinet who remain and try to defend him, they are not going to be able to go to a restaurant, they are not going to be able to stop at a gas station, they are not going to be able to shop in a department store. The people are going to turn on them, they are gonna protest, they are gonna absolutely harass them.”
The President responded in a tweet this afternoon swiping at Waters as “low IQ” (not for the first time) and ominously said, “Be careful what you wish for Max!”
Congresswoman Maxine Waters, an extraordinarily low IQ person, has become, together with Nancy Pelosi, the Face of the Democrat Party. She has just called for harm to supporters, of which there are many, of the Make America Great Again movement. Be careful what you wish for Max!

“She has just called for harm,” he tweeted, “to supporters, of which there are many, of the Make America Great Again movement.”
Waters has received criticism from fellow Democrats over her remarks, including a public rebuke from Nancy Pelosi:
In the crucial months ahead, we must strive to make America beautiful again. Trump’s daily lack of civility has provoked responses that are predictable but unacceptable. As we go forward, we must conduct elections in a way that achieves unity from sea to shining sea. https://t.co/vlpqOBLK4R
