Rep. Maxine Waters is really embracing her new identity as a walking, cable-TV-interview-dominating meme.

At a Wednesday night Emily’s List gala and conference in Washington, the newly minted she-ro of politically active, liberal 20-somethings was predictably blunt in her criticism of President Trump, calling him a “disgusting, poor excuse of a man who is our president.”

“I do not respect him, and I will resist him and his Cabinet of ill-prepared, right-wing billionaires,” the California Democrat said from the dais at the event, which honored female leaders of various resistance movements.

And here’s how we know she’s leaning into her constituency:  “The millennials call me Auntie Maxine. As they say, stay woke!”
