Congresswoman Maxine Waters doesn’t take shit from anyone. At 78 years old, and with over 40 years of experience working in politics, she doesn’t have to.
Waters is the most senior of the 12 black women currently serving in Congress. She’s also a member and former chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, and has been one of the Trump Administration’s most outspoken critics since he took office back in January.
Last week, she clapped back at Trump’s Secretary of the Treasury Steve Mnuchin during a congressional hearing when he chose to spout empty platitudes rather than answer her questions about Trump’s relationship with Russia.
“Reclaiming my time,” she said no less than a dozen times, effectively shutting Mnuchin down.
In case you missed it:
Now, YouTuber Mykal Kilgore has turned Waters’ claiming of her time into a sassy gospel song. Singing all six parts, Kilgore takes us to church with his flawless performance that has already garnered almost 90,000 views.
“Our beloved ‘Auntie’ Maxine Waters laid this sermon down so good that I had to sing about it!” he says. “Whenever anybody tries to distract me or block me (even with praise or platitudes) I’m gonna have to let them know that I’m #ReclaimingMyTime!”
