The Congresswoman from California speaks her mind at a zero-tolerance rally after being the subject of violence and death threats….
Days after she was forced to cancel events because of a “very serious” death threat, a fired-up Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) declared at a rally Saturday, “If you shoot at me, you’d better shoot straight.”
Waters made her defiant statement at the Families Belong Together rally in Los Angeles, which drew several thousand protesters against President Donald Trump’s zero tolerance immigration policy. The rally was one of hundreds across the nation.
“I have no fear. I’m in this fight,” she vowed to cheers.
“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,” Waters added.
“All I have to say is this: If you shoot me, you’d better shoot straight. There’s nothing like a wounded animal. I am prepared to make whatever sacrifices need to be made.”
