Maxine Waters Honored, Leads Impeachment Chant at Glamour Awards

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) received a rapturous ovation Monday night at Glamour magazine’s annual Women of the Year awards in New York as one of its honorees.

The 79-year-old Democrat delighted the crowd — including hundreds of cheering young girls — with a rousing speech that ended on a very political note.

“Ladies and gentlemen — and to our young people, in particular — you recognize when a leader is irresponsible,” she said. “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. And I want you to have the courage and I want you to know that you can stand up to him or anybody else.

“And 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’ll continue to say, ‘Impeach him!’ Impeach him! Impeach him!” she said amid a standing ovation.

“Impeach 45! Impeach 45!” she exhorted the audience, which responded loudly in kind.

Other honorees during the ceremony at the Kings Theater in Brooklyn included actress Nicole Kidman, singer Solange Knowles, late-night talk show host Samantha Bee, model Gigi Hadid, film director Patty Jenkins and fashion designer Maria Grazia Chiuri of Christian Dior.
