Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) has had a bevy of gaffes over her long career. In a recent speech recorded by Fusion, she stumbled yet again when she claimed she was born sometime between 1980 and 2000.
“The recent fight I had that I’ve engaged in because of this new president, and trying to get my colleagues to understand how dangerous he is, has afforded me a really new and huge relationship with young people,” Waters said during the speech. “And I want you to know how pleased I am to know that I’m now ‘Aunt Maxine’ on the internet, and the tweets that I’ve been in that are teaching me all kinds of new words.”
After “Aunt Maxine” told the crowd how hip she was with the young generation, she then tried to reveal that she use to be one of us.
“Our millennials are a force. I recognize it. And I was a millennial once. No longer of course, but I love what you’re doing,” she said before concluding “stay woke!”
Waters, who was born in 1938, was never a millennial. Generation-Y is defined as people who were born between 1980 and 2000.
Stay woke, Aunt Maxine, and while you’re at it, you might want to Wikipedia things before you say them out loud.
