Democratic Representative Maxine Waters spoke at a town hall rally, telling supporters and a small number of Trump supporters what she planned on doing with Ben Carson, President Trump’s Housing and Urban Development Secretary.
According to a reporter from Los Angeles Times, who was present at the rally on Saturday, in Gardena, California, the Democrat said that it would be better if Carson went back to being a surgeon. Being a ranking democrat on the House Committee for Financial Services, she reassured her supporters that she would not hesitate to “take him apart” when he appeared before the committee.
The vocal anti-Trump congresswoman also took aim at other members of Trump’s cabinet. She criticized Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Education Secretary Betsy Devos, and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, the LA Times reported.
The rally however, saw its share of protests too. Trump supporters, who weren’t allowed entry into the town hall, used their loudspeakers to hurl allegations at Waters. They also chanted “let us in” in unison, from outside where they could hear the congresswoman’s speech.
Waters’ staff made sure, through an online form, to identify people who lived in her congressional district. The staff ensured that only those from her district were allowed in, and used some help from the police to keep the others out.
Waters has been a controversial opponent of President Trump. She accused Trump of appointing “scumbags” to his cabinet and called for his impeachment too. She also called for former Fox News host Bill O’ Reilly’s imprisonment.
