Maxine Waters is now claiming that she just might be sent by God himself to fight President Donald Trump and Republicans in Washington.
Weeks after she stirred controversy by calling for the public harassment of Trump cabinet members, Waters is once again making outlandish statements.
In a speech given on Sunday from the pulpit at First African Methodist Episcopal Church in Los Angeles, she implied that she was sent on a mission, seemingly from God himself, just like the Blues Brothers.
“You’ve gotta know that I’m here to do the work that I was sent to do,” she tells the congregation. “And as pastor said to me when I came in this morning, ‘When God sends you to do something, you just do it!’”
She then promises to go back to Washington and raise hell, on behalf of God. “So, I have a message. I’m going back to Washington tomorrow morning. I’m going to tell them Pastor told me to come here and just do it!”
Waters can also be heard on the video saying “I don’t know intimidation. I don’t know fear.”
The California Democrat made headlines in June after calling for the public harassment of Trump cabinet members, saying “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. Tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere!”
After her decree, there have been several high-profile instances of harassment, and many fear the attacks will escalate to violence.
Here’s the video of her speech. The audio quality is not very good.
