Thanks, Maxine Waters: Man arrested for assaulting Secret Service officer at White House; Screams, ‘Where is the president?’

California Democrat Maxine Waters should be proud.  On Tuesday, NBC Washington reported that Steven Carmona was arrested after he allegedly parked his BMW illegally and punched a Secret Service officer in the jaw and the left eye.  According to the report, he screamed, “Where is the president?”

It’s not known why he wanted to know President Trump’s whereabouts, but one can make an educated guess, given the current political climate created by the likes of Waters, Washington Post hack Jennifer Rubin and others.

According to NBC:

A U.S. Secret Service officer was injured in an assault while on patrol outside the White House on Saturday shortly after the major immigration rally in Lafayette Park, according to newly filed federal court records.

Steven Carmona is accused of illegally parking his BMW along Pennsylvania Avenue, moving a bicycle rack-style security barrier erected for the rally and screaming at the officers “Where is the president?” according to a Secret Service affidavit obtained by the News4 I-Team.

The court filings say that after Secret Service officers tried to stop Carmona for illegal parking, Carmona moved the security barrier and then punched an officer in the jaw and the left eye. Two officers took Carmona to the ground and placed leg shackles on him because they said he was kicking at the officers, according to the affidavit.

According to NBC, the officer “suffered a possible concussion and a knee injury.”

“Carmona was placed under arrest for assaulting a federal law enforcement officer. While being placed under arrest, Carmona asked ‘Where is the President?’ He also stated to officers ‘Just end it, just kill me,'” said the affidavit filed by authorities.

Carmona was ordered to undergo a forensic exam and to stay away from Officer Young, the White House grounds and several Northwest D.C. streets.

It’s not known if Carmona had any connection to an immigration protest taking place at the White House, NBC said, observing that he is charged with assault of a federal law enforcement officer.

As we and others reported, Waters told her fellow leftists to confront Trump administration officials wherever they happen to be.

“If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them! And you tell them that they are not welcome, anymore, anywhere,” she said.

That call led to ethics charges being leveled at Waters and calls for her expulsion from Congress.  The pro-Trump duo Diamond and Silk also said Waters should be deemed a “domestic terrorist.”  Some have also said Waters violated federal law and could face up to five years in prison.

“Happy now, Maxine Waters?” Cristina Laila asked at the Gateway Pundit.

Good question, considering that Waters has yet to condemn threats to murder the president.
