After Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked to leave a Virginia restaurant because of her involvement in the Trump administration, Rep. Maxine Waters suggested members of the resistance follow the Red Hen’s lead. However, after advocating for people to voice their disdain for Trump’s immigration policies, Waters was threatened and insulted by the president.

Over the weekend, Waters (D-Calif.), suggested people who see members of Trump’s cabinet should vocally criticize them for supporting a man who believes in the “zero tolerance” policy of ripping children away from their parents at the border, reported Politico.

“Let's make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. And 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,” Waters said over the weekend in Los Angeles. “And you push back on them. And you tell them they're not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

"The people are going to turn on them. They're going to protest,” she later said on MSNBC. “They're going to absolutely harass them until they decide that they're going to tell the president, 'No, I can't hang with you.'"

  1. Trump retaliated against Waters by insulting her intelligence and making a threatening remark
  2. Many reminded Trump that Waters never called for physical harm to his supporters and slammed him for threatening her via tweet
  3. The president was also mocked for trying to come for Auntie Maxine's intelligence
  4. Lest we forget Trump literally called for violence against protesters at his rallies
