California Congresswoman Maxine Waters is in big trouble.
That’s because Waters took her opposition to Donald Trump too far.
And this wounded Navy SEAL just shut down Maxine Waters insane act of treason.
Iran created an international crisis when its military shot down an RQ-4A Global Hawk unmanned drone.
Donald Trump contemplated a military strike against three targets in Iran but eventually decided against going to war with Iran because the 150 person casualty report he was presented with was not proportional for shooting down an unmanned robot drone plane.
The decision was widely praised.
Even Russian collusion conspiracy theorist Adam Schiff praised the decision and said people on the left “should not jump down his throat” over the decision making process.
But Maxine Waters was unmoved.
The controversial Congresswoman found a way to spin not launching a war with Iran into an attack on Trump.
Waters’ words – however – left many Americans questioning her patriotism.
“Trump, you get no credit for so-called stopping the strike against Iran. Why was the unmanned drone in Iran’s airspace? Why the surveillance? Don’t provoke and then pretend innocence,” Waters tweeted.
Texas Congressman Dan Crenshaw – who lost an eye while serving as a Navy SEAL in Afghanistan – called out Waters for echoing Iranian government propaganda.
“This is a shocking comment from a House Committee Chairwoman. She is literally repeating the lies of the Iranian regime. What a disgrace.” Crenshaw continued. “ Maxine Waters’ hate for Trump runs so deep that she is willing to take Iran’s side over the word of our military.”
Before Waters’ comments, Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted out images purporting to show the coordinates of the drone’s flight path in an effort to show the unmanned aircraft was actually in Iranian airspace when it was shot down.
“At 00:14 US drone took off from UAE in stealth mode & violated Iranian airspace. It was targeted at 04:05 at the coordinates (25°59’43″N 57°02’25″E) near Kouh-e Mobarak. We’ve retrieved sections of the US military drone in OUR territorial waters where it was shot down,” Zarif wrote.
“There can be no doubt about where the vessel was when it was brought down,” The Iranian foreign minister added.

The U.S. government strongly called out Zarif for lying.
“Iran’s leaders know the truth is a dangerous thing. It is important to correct the record,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo declared.
Pompeo also called Zarif’s tweet “misinformation.”
But this episode shows the depths at which Trump Derangement Syndrome infected leading Democrats.
Waters was willing to take the word of a hostile foreign power over the U.S. military because Waters hates Donald Trump.
But in matters of war and peace, Americans believe their politicians should be able to unite.
And millions of Americans are grateful that Donald Trump stuck to his campaign promise of rejecting endless war in the Middle East with his decision not to bomb Iran.
