Rep. Maxine Waters knows how to take advantage of a good viral moment when she creates it. More than six months after she cut off Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin during a committee hearing and declared she was “reclaiming my time,” she took the stage at general session of the California Democratic Party and repeated the same words.
“I shut down him down,” she told the audience, which cheered and held signs that bore the three-word slogan as she said it three times more: “Reclaiming my time, reclaiming my time, reclaiming my time.”
Blasting Republicans in Congress as “spineless, unpatriotic, intimidated” and calling President Trump “the most unworthy, untrustworthy, duplicitous human being this country has ever witnessed,” Waters held nothing back.
