Waters: Democratic Leaders Are Talking About Civility ‘Without Attacking Me’

On Monday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In,” Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) denied that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) were “attacking” her in their comments about civility, and that Schumer and Pelosi were trying to “find a way to talk about civility without attacking me or anybody else.”

Waters stated, “They don’t really say I’m out of line. What they try to do is find a way to talk about civility without attacking me or anybody else. As the leader of the Democratic Party, I expect that she would do everything that she could to make sure nobody believes that Democrats are out here harassing anybody or causing any violence. And I think that she was very responsible in the way that she said that. They’re not attacking me. They’re trying to make sure that people understand that we’re focused on the children, and that we’re not focused on this diversion, particularly, the way the president would have it sound and make it out to be.”
