Maxine Waters is such a hypocrite.
A couple of years ago, she was filmed telling people to harass members of the Trump administration in public places.
Now she is complaining about getting threats.
Does she not see the connection between these two things?
The Hill reports:
Maxine Waters: President Trump is ‘setting some of us up to be killed’
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) said Wednesday that President Trump’s continued attacks on lawmakers and others are “setting some of us to be killed.”
“I have death threats constantly,” Waters told MSNBC’s Ali Velshi. “There are a number of people who have been convicted for threatening to kill me. And when he does that, he’s dog-whistling to the white supremacists, the [Ku Klux Klan] KKK and the dangerous people.”
Waters, one of the earliest supporters of impeachment, said she can no longer “go to the grocery store anymore by myself” and that she has to “pay for security all the time.”

“He shouldn’t be going after anybody,” she said. “He’s the president of the United States of America.”
Waters’s comments came as Trump has continued to attack an anonymous whistleblower whose complaint that said Trump urged Ukraine’s president to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son has since become the center of House Democrats’ formal impeachment inquiry against him.

Is she really too dense to see the irony here?
