He was angry. All of us are. You can't call for violence especially during a high profile court case.

He was right to be angry. This isn't about what she said but the fact that she said it. There are two very separate branches of government for good reason. The executive doesn't get to dictate to the legislative about legal decisions and the legislative don't make policy for the executive. That's his issue. I'm certain if Cruz or Hawley had said that they should protest until Chavin is found innocent, he'd have been equally annoyed.

How dare the Judge in the case object to mad-maxxine causing a mistrial by blatantly inciting mob violence! It's not like any of the jurors were ever going to vote to acquit, so why does it matter that the riots give defense attourneys a claim of possible jury intimidation? That judge should be disrobed for thinking he could run his own courtroom.

Defending the indefensible. The fact not one Democrat stood up for the Constitution and the separation of the branches tells you how corrupt the current administration is.

Waters is shit, just like her discrict. She could have easily went and supported and showed up in her own disteict to make comments..she flew across the country, to the center of the issue, broke laws to do so, and cast her opinion as a congressional leader to the constituents..piece of shit.

She does not really have to defend her tame comments. Republicans are just using their aggrievement culture to equate what Waters said to some of the horrendous and antidemocratic things republicans have said and done.

Easy to defend. If Trump's comments weren't judged to be incitement neither were hers.
