Appearing on MSNBC on Monday, Democratic Senator Cory Booker endorsed the call from Maxine Waters for protesters to harass members of the Trump administration whenever they dare to step foot in public.

After bumbling through a long-winded response about “radical love” and being civil to even those you disagree with, Booker (D-NJ) took a turn and endorsed Waters’ call to action.
“If I saw an administrator out and about — there is nothing wrong with confronting that person,” Booker said.
Waters had drawn extreme outrage from the right and some of the more decent members of the left for comments she made about publicly confronting and harassing members of the Trump administration.
The comments were made during a speech by Waters at a rally in Los Angeles and echoed in a later television appearance.
“Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. And 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. We’ve got to get the children connected to their parents,” Waters said during a rally outside the Wilshire Federal Building.
Appearing on MSNBC, Waters added that “the people are going to turn on them. They’re going to protest. They’re going to absolutely harass them until they decide that they’re going to tell the President, ‘No, I can’t hang with you.'”
In typical Democratic style of refusing any personal responsibility, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi referred to Waters’ comments as “unacceptable” but blamed Trump’s “daily lack of civility” for Waters’ obscene remarks.
