Maxine Waters: ‘I have not called for the harm of anybody’:

Rep. Maxine Waters pushed back against President Donald Trump on Monday, saying she wasn’t calling for people to “harm” his supporters, as he tweeted earlier in the day, but to publicly protest his Cabinet members.

“I believe in peaceful, very peaceful protests,” she told reporters on Capitol Hill. “I have not called for the harm of anybody. This President has lied again when he’s saying that I’ve called for harm.”
The Democratic congresswoman from California returned to Washington on Monday amid a heated debate over her comments from the weekend, when she encouraged people to keep pushing back on members of Trump’s administration in public spaces, like restaurants, department stores and gas stations.
Her comments, fueled by frustration over migrant families separated at the border, came at the end of a week when Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was heckled by activists at a restaurant in Washington, DC, and White House press secretary Sarah Sanders was asked to leave a restaurant in Virginia.

These migrant parents no longer face charges. But they say the damage is done.:

Miriam says she didn’t have a chance to say a word to her 4-year-old son before he was taken from her at the US-Mexico border.

It was dawn and he was fast asleep, she said. They were detained the night before in El Paso, Texas. The moment someone told her to dress him was the moment she learned that they were going to be separated. He was still asleep when they put him on a truck and drove away, she said.
When she was finally able to reach him on Monday by phone in New York, she says he refused to speak to her. CNN was unable to confirm how much time had passed since their separation. But as Miriam tells it, it was long enough to make an impression on him.
“He’s mad at me,” she said, tears in her eyes. “He thinks that I abandoned him.”
Jimmy Fallon responds to Trump: ‘Why are you tweeting at me?’:

Jimmy Fallon kicked off his show Monday by addressing President Donald Trump’s Twitter attacks on him — and he had a simple question for the president: “Why are you tweeting at me?”

“Before we begin, I just wanna give a shout-out to our show’s number one fan, the president of the United States!” Fallon said. “As you may have heard, last night, the president of the United States went after me on Twitter, so Melania, if you’re watching, I don’t think your anti-bullying campaign is working.

Fallon told his audience on NBC’s “The Tonight Show” that he had planned to tweet back at the president right away on Sunday night, but instead realized he had “more important things to do.”

“Then I thought, ‘Wait, shouldn’t he have more important things to do?'” Fallon said to laughs. “He’s the president! What are you doing? Why are you tweeting at me?”
