Congresswoman Maxine Waters is no stranger to the countless number of memes circulating social media, but don’t let the meme fool you, she is a total no-nonsense warrior, who is always ready to roll up her sleeves and fight the good fight. We’ve grown to love her so much that we’ve adopted her as our own, after all … she reminds us of one of our witty aunts! Here are 5 reasons why Congresswoman Maxine Waters is Auntie Goals.
Well if you don’t know who the Congresswoman is, you better ask somebody. And if that somebody don’t tell you, then she will … Auntie Maxine doesn’t hold her tongue for anyone. Congresswoman comes with the facts, but also her opinions and if you don’t want to be shut down, get out of her way. She’s not here for political correctness or politeness and will be quick to ask you,”What do you want”? She cannot be out talked, spoken over or cut off. That simply will not happen She famously quipped when asked about her attendance to the 2017 Inauguration, after a mouthful of hard core insults, ” I don’t honor him, I don’t respect him, and I don’t want to be involved with him” …… And that’s that! Well okay then.
Congresswoman Waters is the longest serving black congresswoman and she knows what she’s talking about. When she shows up, make no qualms about it, she does not come to play. She will read you your last rights and do it with the best side eye, eye-roll combo! You may think her shade throwing, facial expressions and rhetoric are funny but she will go toe to toe with ANYONE. Just try her.
3. There’s nothing better than an articulate woman …
Yes, the crowned “Political Shade Queen” will have you pulling out your dictionaries to see what in tarnation she means! When you finally figure it out, your too busy picking your face up off the floor from her amazing reads. Now that’s a skill, ask all of the reporters who try her.
4. She’s fearless …
As if we didn’t know already, just ask the Congresswoman who she is and she’ll answer in matter-of-fact fashion, “I’m a strong black woman … I cannot be intimidated”! She has dragged the FBI Director, Bill O’Reilly, and the President, all without taking a breathe. Apparently none of them have credibility. She’s our type of girl!
Man oh man nothing makes another woman prouder than to see another, woman take on any man and make a mouse out of him. The plus is, we see ourselves in her. Her Auntie title doesn’t come from wanting to be related to her, instead it comes from being relatable … she makes us feel like we can count on her to stand up for us like family. Congresswoman makes you proud to be a woman!
