*California Congresswoman Maxine Waters has been in the crosshairs of President Trump, other Republicans in politics, Sean Hannity and other GOP haters who’ve created a climate that has emboldened some to make death threats against “Auntie Maxine.”
Well, if you think that’s going to scare her into not speaking her mind about the Trump Administration and its GOP minions, think again. At an immigration rally on Saturday in Los Angeles, she warned anyone coming for her to make sure and “shoot straight.”
“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.
“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.
“How dare you. How dare you take the babies from their mother’s arms!” Rep. Maxine Waters says President Trump has gone too far with his zero-tolerance policies that led to separating families. https://t.co/s5VHotCcgS pic.twitter.com/gD28BJNsy0

As we reported earlier, Waters was forced to cancel a pair of events in Alabama and Texas this week after a “very serious death threat.”
She said she has been getting harassed after she called for protesters to confront Trump administration officials in public over its “zero tolerance” immigration policy.
Trump slammed Waters during a campaign rally earlier this week after inaccurately claiming in a tweet that Waters called for protesters to harm his supporters.
“As the President has continued to lie and falsely claim that I encouraged people to assault his supporters, while also offering a veiled threat that I should ‘be careful’, even more individuals are leaving (threatening) messages and sending hostile mail to my office,” Waters said in the statement, according to CNN.
Waters insisted that she was not calling for harm and said she believes in “peaceful protest.”
