Congresswoman Maxine Waters has always spoken her mind in a signature fashion, which has already immortalized so many of her quotes. This time the 43rd District Representative addressed the shelter-in-place order during a podcast.
Rep. Waters was a guest at SoCal when the host, Alex Cohen, asked her about her recent Grio conversation where she discussed the COVID-19 lockdown. Cohen mentioned the “safer at home” executive order and asked his guest if she believed that the upcoming warm season and the lockdown fatigue would be a little too tempting for some people.
But Rep. Waters did not feel like sweet-talking those too eager to go out just because it was nice outside, once again getting her point made for The Grio across:
“Some people may be offended by what I’m about to say, but this is Auntie Maxine,” Rep. Waters replied.
“I want black people, my people, to keep your ass at home,” she added, mentioning that “a lot of people out there don’t care about you.”
