Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) addressed criticism about violent Democratic protests saying “protest is about making you feel uncomfortable,” during an interview with Roland Martin on Saturday.

“I told someone the other day who is trying to say that we’re violent when we protest, protest is about making you feel uncomfortable. I’m not supposed to come to you and say ‘may I protest you?’ No, absolutely not,” Waters said.

Waters was criticized earlier this year for telling Democratic activists to harass members of the Trump administration in public.

“If your heart tells you that this is what you need to do because you see some injustice, that you see people who are creating you know a terrible time and pain for others and you want to protest to try and make change to try and make it right, then speak what your heart is telling you to do,” Waters added.
