"For 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," Waters said at a rally in Los Angeles.

"The people are going to turn on them. They're going to protest. They're going to absolutely 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, and we can't keep doing this to children.'"

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) called for unity in a Monday tweet, which included a CNN article about Waters's comments.

"In the crucial months ahead, we must strive to make America beautiful again," Pelosi said. "Trump’s daily lack of civility has provoked responses that are predictable but unacceptable. As we go forward, we must conduct elections in a way that achieves unity from sea to shining sea."
