[Ed. – Of course, death threats to Waters are despicable and we abhor them. Meanwhile, if she were almost anyone else, this would be recognized for the grandstanding it is. If you shoot at Maxine, you’ll be taken down in seconds by her security detail.]
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) has addressed a series of recent death threats she said she has received, telling would-be threateners to “shoot straight” during an immigration rally on Saturday.
“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 told the crowd in Los Angeles.
“All I have to say is this, if you shoot me you better shoot straight, there’s nothing like a wounded animal,” she added to cheers.
