Auntie Maxine on Trump: ‘We’ve Got to Stop His Ass’

Tom Williams/CQ Roll Call

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), Auntie Maxine to us, continues to speak truth to power. On Saturday the congresswoman kept it real and succinct as she spoke on President Donald Trump: “We’ve got to stop his ass,” Waters said to a cheering crowd.


As noted before, Mama Max takes no tea for the fever, and as a 78-year-old black woman in America, she done ran out of fucks to give about 30 years ago.

According to Mic, Waters hosted a fundraiser at socially conscious watering hole, Busboys and Poets, a day before Washington, D.C.’s Tax March.

The event was actually called “Auntie Maxine’s Tax Day March Open Mic Reception.”

The mic was indeed open, and Waters let her thoughts pour on our current commander in chief.


“He is a con man. He is someone who will do whatever is necessary to get over at the moment,” she said. She also urged attendees to become politically active.


Her rock-star status continues, and the very next day, at the Tax March, she said she doesn’t trust the president and will not rest until he is outta here.

“I will fight every day until he is impeached,” she said to the usual cheers.
