The Secret Service may want to have an interview with Maxine Waters, esteemed Democrat Congresswoman from California.
Speaking before a group that benefits ‘homeless LGBTQ youth,’ Waters vowed to “go and take Trump out tonight,” a line that drew wild applause from those in attendance.
Waters made the incendiary comments in front of a private audience at the Ali Forney Center in New York City.

Can you imagine a member of Congress saying this about former President Barack Obama? Republican Congressman Joe Wilson (R-SC) was admonished by the House after calling Obama a liar. Imagine he had said he’d “take out” Obama.
Waters’ comments to “take out” the President of the United States, a Republican, come just four months after a far-left maniac opened fire on Republican congressmen at a softball field in Arlington, Virginia.
In that incident, a Bernie Sanders supporter took the concept of ‘taking out’ politicians to new levels, attempting to assassinate several members of Congress, most notably Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) who spent months in the hospital recovering from his injuries.
Needless to say, many quickly denounced the Congresswoman’s comments – none of them were Democrats.
Crazy Maxine Waters says she wants to “take Trump out”-media snores. Gen Kelly calls wacky @RepWilson an “empty barrel”-media loses its mind

Unacceptable. Democrat leadership should denounce ANY suggested violence against the President. https://t.co/K4DZXXgafu

Secret Service should call for Maxine Waters immediate resignation after these comments. We don’t need lip service. https://t.co/D80jhU2rg1

In an interesting twist, the American Mirror claims that the original video of Maxine saying she’s going to “take out Trump” has been pulled from the site.
“YouTube has deleted the original video of Waters’s appearance,” the Mirror wrote.
Was it the comment itself that caused the video to be pulled for going against YouTube’s standards? That would seem to indicate her words could be construed as violent rhetoric. Or are they simply trying to aid in the cover up?
Should Waters be reprimanded by Congress for her comments? Share your thoughts below!
