‘What a Disgrace’: Crenshaw Shreds Waters for ‘Repeating the Lies of the Iranian Regime’ to Bash Trump

Freshman Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) had some choice words for House Financial Services Committee Chair Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) after the latter claimed that President Donald Trump did not deserve to receive “credit” for stopping a military strike against Iran after it shot down a U.S. drone.

On Sunday, Waters took aim at the president, claiming that he should not receive “credit” for halting a retaliatory strike against the Islamic Republic after it shot down a U.S. drone over the Strait of Hormuz.

Trump had stated he called off the military move because it could have killed 150 people, a disproportionate response to the downed unmanned drone.

“Trump, you get no credit for so-called stopping the strike against Iran,” Waters tweeted. “Why was the unmanned drone in Iran’s airspace? Why the surveillance? Don’t provoke and then pretend innocence.”

Crenshaw — a former Navy SEAL — fired back hours later, calling the rhetoric from Waters “shocking” and accusing the House Financial Services Committee chairwoman of “literally repeating the lies of the Iranian regime.”

“This is a shocking comment from a House Committee Chairwoman,” the congressman wrote. “She is literally repeating the lies of the Iranian regime. What a disgrace.”

Crenshaw continued on to blast the California Democrat, saying that her “hate for Trump runs so deep” that she is “willing” to side with Iran’s word over that of the U.S. military’s.

The Iranian government claimed that the U.S. drone was in its airspace. The U.S. government has pushed back on the Islamic Republic’s claim, saying that the drone was in international airspace instead.

Iran claimed the downing of the drone was to send “a clear message” to the U.S.

I believe that any congressional person who makes false statements that cannot be proven regarding any military action should be charged with treasonous acts. Put up or shut up!

I believe Maxine Waters should be escorted to the mental institute in a straight jacket for her asinine comments. She is a hateful, despicable person that has no business being in charge of anything and should be jailed for her behavior as a United States Congresswoman.

Is that message the same one they left on 911? That did not end well for the middle east either. Waters is a joke, but I guess the dead believe in her, they voted her in.

Mad Maxine should have her ass dropped into Iran from high aloft, with or without a parachute.
