As Twitchy reported, Glamour Magazine on Monday unveiled its 2017 Women of the Year Award winners, and included were all of the usual suspects, including the organizers of the Women’s March, TV host Samantha Bee, and “the congresswoman who could,” Rep. Maxine Waters.
Waters is being honored with Glamour’s — don’t laugh — lifetime achievement award.

She doesn’t even have a passingly familiar acquaintance with the term.

OK, we know she speaks aggressively and without apology, but what has she really done? Cindi Leive, Glamour’s editor-in-chief, noted that Waters “grew up without all that much and decided that she would go back to college in her 20s, after having worked at the phone company, and then worked as a community coordinator for Head Start. She wasn’t born into politics or anything like that.”
She wasn’t born into politics, but she certainly found a way to take up residence there. But again — lifetime achievement?
She's only passed 3 bills in 27 years. How's that for speaking truth to power?

Makes accusations without proof and has been in Congress 27 years and passed three bills. Yeah she's a winner alright. https://t.co/GhaXBNBgRo

Um no. She's a broken record who has barely passed any bills. She's no hero. https://t.co/WMfJJ9W4Xd

Auntie Maxine finna get the man. She’s only passed 3 bills in her career as Congressman, because she’s been saving her energy for this time.

Makes accusations without proof. Admits to wanting government take overs of private companies. Has ties to pro-Communist groups. https://t.co/2KeAZCV0FF

We don’t see anything there that would preclude Glamour from honoring her, though.
I abhor ur stupid rag… stick with fashion.
