While America’s organically elected President is missing in action and we’re having to put up with Russia’s sloppy seconds, Maxine Waters has stepped up to the plate. She’s running the national game like a GOOD LEADER should.
SOMEBODY has to be the adult in the room, and even Nancy Pelosi got into a playpen tongue-poking match with Trump while Chuck Schumer stood by and watched it happen. But Auntee ain’t playing with no one of them. At ALL.
Now that we know that Trump’s only job is to muck out the pigsty called typical American race politics and make the idiots that support him look like crap along the way, we also know that he could go play golf all day every day and no one would miss him.
Apparently, this includes his wife, who allegedly did not spend New Year’s Eve 2018 with her own husband. But we know the Obama’s were nice and tight and cozy and all fuzzy cuddled up all night, though, LOL. For all we know, the Missus Trump may have even been hanging out with the Obama’s for the New Year looking for a place to feel loved and wanted in 2019. #???
Auntee In Cali
Maxine Moore Waters is an American politician serving as the U.S. House Representative for California’s 43rd congressional district since 2013. A member of the Democratic Party, Waters has served in Congress since 1991. She previously represented the state’s 29th district and 35th district. Her national duties include Ranking Member of the House Financial Services, member of the Steering and Policy Committee, and here lately, a supporter of Nancy Pelosi for Speaker of the House.
Last we hear, Stacey Abrams and John Lewis’s names came up to take Pelosi’s place as Speaker of the House, but that’s another conversation for another day.
Auntee Max is also the former Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), co-founder of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, a co-chair of the Congressional Task Force on Alzheimer’s Disease, and she also serves on the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission and CDC, Congressional Diabetes Caucus.
Auntee Maxine in the Nation At-Large
Okay, acronyms aside … UNDERLINE Ranking Member OF HOUSE FINANCIAL SERVICES, because that’s where she is about to make her biggest hit recordings in her entire splendiferous policy-stylist VERY VOCAL career.
We lost two years playing Swamp Games with Trump but it appears that Auntee is about to “reclaim lost time” and make certain that he answers for his two years of horrific misdeeds in ways that even Robert Mueller can’t. But it’s nice to see all of these white men in America actually being FORCED to finally live up to the American values they have only talked about while the Swamp Party of Trump revved up his base.
Auntee Maxine for America: Enter The Dragon
For the little time I lived in San Bernardino, California, I had a few issues with the way Auntee was handling matters through the CBC on President Obama’s watch; but here lately, I am starting to like what I see and hear again, including her work on three of my favorite Congressional topics:
_Minorities and Women
Oh, did I say 3? … okay that’s more than three? Sorry… .
Trump may have attempted to ditch all of these offices off his empty troll plate that President Obama tackled during his eight years in office, but those issues are never going to be “off the table” as to this nation’s policies. Trump, like it or not, is no longer anything we or the world takes seriously. Besides, it looks like Auntee Maxine is “draining the swamp” in ways Trump never could.
How long it’s going to take America to get serious again and recover from two years’ worth of totaled recklessness in Washington DC remains to be seen, but we now know up close and personal what the words NEVER SEND IN A BOY TO DO A MAN’S JOB means.
Send in a Black Woman and GIT ‘ER DID.
