Democrat Congresswoman Maxine Waters was honored with GLAMOUR Magazine’s “Woman of the Year Lifetime Achievement Award.”
The award ceremony was held last night in New York City, where Waters used her platform to go after President Donald Trump.
The 79-year-old has repeatedly called for Trump’s impeachment and last night was no exception.
She repeated two words which ignited the crowd, getting the liberal attendees to jump to their feet and cheer.

The American Mirror reports some of Waters’ acceptance speech:
“This is your country, this is your future, and our democracy is at stake. So, not only am I depending on all of the progressives everywhere, but I’m depending on young people. I’m depending on the millennials to do what we know they can do,” Waters said.
“You see again what is going on. You understand who is being disadvantaged. You understand who is being undermined. And you also understand those who would intimidate you and try to dismiss you and keep you from becoming what you want to become,” she continued. “Trust yourselves. Do not doubt yourselves. Do what you know your mind and your heart is telling you to do. …
“You recognize when a leader is irresponsible. You recognize when a leader is dishonorable and disrespectful of you. You recognize when a leader is dangerous, even if that leader is the president of the United States of America,” Waters said to a roaring applause.
“And I want you to have the courage. I want you to know that you can stand up to him or anybody else. For those who say to me, ‘You are asking for something too soon and too early, be careful, don’t jeopardize yourself, don’t say what you’re saying right now,’ but I continue to say, ‘Impeach him! Impeach him! Impeach him!
“Impeach 45! Impeach 45! I didn’t hear you! Impeach 45!”
Although those in attendance were enthused, several people on Twitter did not share in the excitement:
I wish Waters would get impeached. She is one useless woman.

Why are you thinking a 79 yr old hateful woman has the right to speak about a sitting Potus . I will never buy or subscribe to your magazine again. She’s the last person who should be saying anything about anyone.

This woman doesn't live in the district she represents, and somehow acquired a 4.5 million dollar mansion on a public servant salary. She's a fraud & people should be embarrassed to support her

She has a very limited vocabulary.
