Maxine Waters doesn’t seem to understand how generations work. At a recent event, she was talking about how much she loves Millennials then claimed she once was one.
The Washington Free Beacon reported:
Maxine Waters: ‘I Was a Millennial Once’
Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) delivered a speech in which she reminded her audience that she was a “millennial” once, and told them to “stay woke.”
Waters said that she developed a “huge” relationship with young people after her attempts to get her colleagues to recognize how “dangerous” President Donald Trump is.
“The recent fight I had that I’ve engaged in because of this new president, and trying to get my colleagues to understand how dangerous he is, has afforded me a really new and huge relationship with young people,” Waters said.
Waters said she is learning new words from young people.
“And I want you to know how pleased I am to know that I’m now “Aunt Maxine” on the internet, and the tweets that I’ve been in that are teaching me all kinds of new words,” she said.
Waters then said she was once a millennial.
“Our millennials are a force. I recognize it. And I was a millennial once,” she said. “No longer of course, but I love what you’re doing.”
