Rep. Maxine Waters encouraged the Americans to "absolutely harass" White House officials while they are off duty and out in public spaces.

The California Democrat told MSNBC, "These members of his Cabinet who remain and try to defend him, they're not going to be able to go to a restaurant, they're not going to be able to stop at a gas station, they're not going to be able to shop at a department store. The people are going to turn on them. They're going to protest. They're absolutely going to harass them until they decide that they're going to tell the president, 'No, I can't hang with you.' This is wrong. This is unconscionable."

She was referring to several instances where the public has already angrily confronted White House officials in public spaces over the administration's "zero tolerance" policy toward illegal immigrants, which led to the separation of parents from their children.

Waters emphasized, "I have no sympathy for these people that are in this administration who know it's wrong what they're doing on so many fronts, but they tend to not want to confront this president or even leave, but they know what they're doing is wrong."

The congresswoman's remarks came on the same day she gave a speech in Los Angeles making similar remarks, revving up the crowd by saying, "We're gonna win this battle because while you try and quote the Bible, Jeff Sessions and others, you really don't know the Bible. God is on our side. On the side of the children. On the side of what's right. On the side of what's honorable. On the side of understanding that if we can't protect the children, we can't protect anybody."

Waters indicated that the public was already enraged by the administration's policies, saying that "you have members of your Cabinet that are being booed out of restaurants. We have protesters taking up at their house who are saying, 'No peace, no sleep. No peace, no sleep.'"
