“I strongly disagree with those who advocate harassing folks if they don’t agree with you,” Schumer said last week.
On Joy Reid’s MSNBC show, Waters defended her comments, sharing her belief that Trump “does not deserve” to be president of the United States. She was “simply standing up to him.” Waters then accused the top Democrats of missing the point and simply looking out for their own jobs.
