Some people (who shall remain nameless) had problems with their impression of Rep. Maxine Waters on the latest Snatch Game but make no mistake, the Maxine has NO PROBLEM reading you up and down. Rep. Mike Kelly of Pennsylvania took it upon himself to point his finger at Waters and tell her to stop talking about discrimination.
Oh, no she didn’t!? Yep.
Let’s back it up a sec… the dispute started with a discussion of auto lending and the Trump administration and Congressional Republicans are trying to roll back Obama-era legislation that prevents auto lenders from discriminating against potential buyers. Kelly HAD to lecture lecture Waters that,
“We’re making America great… And the best way to do that is to stop talking about discrimination.“
Here it comes,
“Mr. Kelly, please don’t leave because I want you to know that I am more offended as an African-American woman than you will ever be…“
Then the chair interrupted Waters, asking her to direct his remarks to him.
“I respect the chair but don’t stop me in the middle when you didn’t stop him in the middle, and so I will continue….
Having said that, I reserve the balance of my time. I do not yield. Not one second. Not one second to you. Not one second!“
