‘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.


  1. 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!

  2. Of the drone was in iranian airspace, how come t he wreckage wss.miles away.from it?

  3. Mr. Crew Shaw, thank you for your service. My brother was in team 6. I wish he were here to see the good you are doing for our country. Thanks again, for your service and continued service.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. and her reply was….? That’s right, “block him”.

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

  8. Maxine Waters continues to say what she believes even thought it’s total BS and it no longer surprises me how much she hates our President. Dan Crenshaw, being a Veteran and Patriot has put it to her in a gentlemanly way. If I was face to face with her, I doubt I could do the same.

  9. Why do democrats support members of congress like Maxine Waters I believe she has a mental disability that impairs her ability to do her job

  10. “… she is “willing” to side with Iran’s word over that of the U.S. military’s.” Not too long ago, wasn’t President Trump siding with Russia over our intelligence services? Ditto with siding with Saudi Arabia over our intelligence and diplomatic services? Any outrage over that, Crenshaw?

    1. Not disagreeing is not the same as repeating provable lies. It is similar to nolo contendre…where the subject matter isn’t worth arguing about. that’s different that accusing your own country of a violation being made by a foreign power who was complicit in the event itself.

  11. Turn the screws tighter until they do something so epic stupid then take out their ability to wage war.

  12. Maxine Waters, you get all the credit for your knack of demonstrating your lack of support for America in the face of her enemies. You should be ashamed of yourself. God bless Crenshaw.

  13. This is sooo unfair to slapsie-maxipad-watercloset.
    She has to repeat someone’s lies since she isn’t smart enough to make up her own.
    Now Crenshaw could have accused her of “cultural appropriation” for stealing iranian lies, but he didn’t.

  14. I’m from California and we need to get Maxine waters out of our government and Nancy Pelosi. They have ruined enough of it. We need to clean the swamp of everyone of them.

    1. Keep the swamp, get rid of the ‘gators you don’t agree with?

  15. Maxine Waters has no capacity to govern or be in a leadership position. Just look at her record, pathetic

    1. agree> time for her to leave if she cant support our country and Pres. no need here for those like her

  16. Maxine doesn’t believe the intelligence people who said we were in international waters?

  17. Maxine Waters is a deplorable person that should be voted out!

  18. Maxine, you crazy old bat, you need to go home and stay home, your reduced term of sanity was over a long time ago!

  19. Maxine Waters asked, “Why the surveillance?” What? Hasn’t she heard that much of the world’s oil sail through those straits and Iran is interfering so therefore we must keep an eye on them.

    1. And, why is it that the Chinese , the Russians and others are sitting on the bleachers and just watching?

  20. “Representative” Crenshaw is using the fact that he is a veteran to justify the crap that Trump has foisted on the military and the America that I love, while “our leader” has played kissy-faced with all of the despotic leaders that he loves. C’mon, Crenshaw, GET WITH IT!!

    1. Really ‘Paul’, really? You say Crenshaw is using the fact that he is a veteran bla bla…. Now tell us all Paul cause we want to know. Where specifically did Crenshaw say “I am a veteran.” Where? And hey Paul, Crenshaw is a veteran, and he is a US Rep, while you….what, live in mommy’s basement and criticise conservatives?

      And you say Trump plays kissy face with all the despotic leaders he loves? Really? Were you around when Obama made his world apology tour? No? Well, he did it for 8 years.

    2. HEY JACKASS!!!!!!!! I am a “VET” just like Congressman Crenshaw!!!!!! With you BAD mouthing a VET, you have never served and don’t under stand what we go through while serving and what we go through when we come home, by jackasses like you and your so called fools in congress, like maxi pad, pig face and the others!!!!!!! So do all of us a big favor and keep your un-America lib BS to your self!!!!!!!!!!!

    3. You are right, paulie.
      Our previous prez only kissed izlamic ass.
      This ne merely kicks it.

  21. Waters and Pelosi, belong being sent to the same nursing home for their dementia! Take Nadler, Schummer and a few others I can mention…..they all are nut cases!

    1. They should be all sentenced to live in the same home with AOC as their manager!!

  22. Why is Rep Crenshaw the only voice of reason coming out of Congress to defend the President from the ludicrous comments spouted from Democratic leaders?

    1. Dan would make an excellent Presidential Candidate, wouldn’t he?

  23. Maxine Waters is a disgrace to congress and if she lived in any other state she would be out of a job. For the life of me I can’t figure how she runs the committee she does after the shenanigans her husband pulled off with the bank he represented and how again did they get bailed out oh yes Maxine was there to save the day The left only has one way that is acceptable and that is their way or no way I hope some organization looks into all the private affairs of every congressional democrat that insists on ruining the lives of anyone connected to the president Everyone has skeletons and the time has come to expose the whiners for what they are

    1. The only ones that listen to Waters, are the uneducated from where she was elected If they really kept up with Waters. she has done nothing for any of them to make their lives better! All I have seen is the gaping hole in her big mouth….that she hates Trump and anyone who supports him!

    2. The MSM listens and gleefully reports her idiotic comments that are always anti-Trump….feeding the divisiveness that they claim Trump is responsible for…completely biased media is a threat to America.

      1. I see point. But the majority of Americans dislike Ms Waters.
