Pelosi Rebukes ‘Unacceptable’ Comments by Maxine Waters Urging Harassment of Trump Admin

Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi subtly weighed in on the ongoing controversy surrounding Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) on Monday after the California Democrat urged people to confront members of the Trump ad ministration in public. 

Pelosi shared a CNN article covering the comments and alluded to “unacceptable” responses to the Trump administration’s “daily lack of civility.”

“Trump’s daily lack of civility has provoked responses that are predictable but unacceptable,” Pelosi wrote. “As we go forward, we must conduct elections in a way that achieves unity from sea to shining sea.”

The Democratic leader’s comments follow a whirlwind of controversy after Waters called on her supporters to confront Trump officials in public — a call-to-action that came on the heels of White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders being asked to leave a restaurant because she worked for President Donald Trump.  

“If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd, and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” Waters at a rally over the weekend. 

Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, a Trump supporter, was also confronted by protesters at a movie theater Friday night regarding her stance on the administration’s zero tolerance immigration policy. 

“What would Mister Rogers think about you and your legacy in Florida? Taking away health insurance from people with pre-existing conditions, Pam Bondi!” a labor organizer shouted ar Bondi as she exited a showing of “Won’t You Be My Neighbor.” “Shame on you!” he said.
