Maxine Waters: Trump Is ‘Poster Boy’ for ‘Mob’ Protesters

On MSNBC’s All In Tuesday, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) – who has been criticized for encouraging people to harass Republicans in public – said President Trump is the “poster boy for what a mob protester looks like.”

Waters accused Trump of recently portraying peaceful protesters of the Supreme Court confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh as “mobs.” She said, “Well, this president is the poster boy for what a mob protester looks like. He’s the one who has been violent in his speech.

“We don’t have that kind of talk that has come from the women who are protesting,” Waters continued. “As a matter of fact, this country is past due for the kind of protests that we have seen women do in the last few days as we have gone through this confirmation process of Kavanaugh. It is time for women to say that we’re tired of being disrespected.”
