What Did Maxine Waters Mean When She Said She Would “Take Trump Out Tonight”?


by Sharon Rondeau

(Oct. 22, 2017) — A video has been posted to YouTube of Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA43), apparently speaking in remembrance of someone, said that “with this kind of inspiration, I will go and take Trump out tonight.”

Waters’s declaration was met with cheers and applause by her audience, which is not shown in the 44-second video.

Waters has adopted the mantra that Trump should be impeached and that she is leading the effort.

On Sunday morning, this writer contacted the U.S. Secret Service to inquire as to whether or not they had knowledge of Waters’s remark.  While the person who answered the call could not comment, she provided the media-relations email address, to which we sent the following:

Good morning, no doubt you are aware of comments made by Rep. Maxine Waters last evening at a private event in which she said she planned to “take out” the president “tonight.”


As a media outlet, I am wondering if the Secret Service can issue a comment as to whether or not her remarks merit an investigation.

Thank you very much.

In the past, this publication has reported what it perceived to be threats made against Trump, Barack Obama, and Mitt Romney to the Secret Service.

Last spring, after Kathy Griffin held up a grotesque image of the president’s head, the Secret Service reportedly conducted an investigation but cleared Griffin as a potential threat.

After having many of her scheduled appearances canceled as a result, Griffin now claims that she is “blacklisted” by Hollywood generally.

Last year, radio host Glenn Beck was also reportedly investigated after he appeared to have alluded to harming a presidential candidate with a knife, a claim his close associates denied.  On March 4, 2016, CBS11 reported that the incident was “a misunderstanding.”

Secret Service interviews and arrests have been made of some who threatened Barack and Michelle Obama.

In August, the Secret Service reportedly investigated Missouri state senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal after she posted a desire to see Trump “assassinated” on her private Facebook page.  Although stripped of all committee assignments, Chappelle-Nadal remains a state senator in the “Show-Me” state.

Waters’s comment came on the same day that Trump announced on Twitter that absent any precluding information, he would allow the release of the remaining 3,100 documents generated by the official JFK assassination probe to be released on October 26, when a federal statute passed in 1992 which kept them classified expires.

TruePundit posted the video on Saturday night and reported that Waters made the remarks “at the Ali Forney Center gala in New York City last week.”  The website stated that the Secret Service did not respond to its request for comment.

At a funeral service for comedian Dick Gregory, Waters said that she is “cleaning out the White House.”  “We’re gonna sabotage the White House,” she continued.  “When I get through with Donald Trump, he’s gonna wish he had been impeached.”

    Bendore, I am sure that the Secret Service did not give her threats the attention they deserved. There were several people treated very harshly by the USSS when the threats were directed towards Barack Obama and he wasn’t even the bona-fide President so that 18USC, Sec. 871 (a) did not apply. In Trump’s case it does apply since President Trump is the bona-fide President.

    Maxine surely didn’t mean she was going to take Trump out for dinner. She like other privileged V.I.P.’s must consider themselves above the law or that common decency doesn’t apply to President Trump. The far, far left abides by Rules of Radicals / Rascals. Truth and fair play be darned. She seems to be associated with the Deep, Dark, Dank State. Therefore, Maxine surely feels she can threaten President Trump at no personal cost.

    She surely deserves a visit from the Secret Service…

    I’m quite sure that the Secrete Service gave the comment all of the attention that it deserved.
