What was the comment that fired her up?
Rep. Mike Kelly said, “They’re trying to make sure that we’re making America great every day in every way. The best way to do that is to stop talking about discrimination and start talking about the nation we’re coming together as a people in spite of what you say.” Kelly was referring to the continuous turmoil the Democratic party adds to distract the American people from real issues.
“Mr. Kelly, please do not leave,” she said. “Because I want you to know that I am more offended as an African-American woman than you will ever be. And this business about ‘making America great again,’ it is your president that’s dividing this country.”
“And don’t talk to me about the fact that we don’t understand,” she continued, implying Kelly was being misogynistic. “That’s the attitude that’s been given toward women time and time again.”
McClintock attempted to remind Waters that she must address the chair, but she ignored him and denied Kelly an opportunity to respond to her rant.
“I respect the chair, but don’t stop me in the middle when you didn’t stop him in the middle, and so I shall continue,” she said, turning to Kelly again. “Don’t you dare talk to me like that and think that somehow women don’t understand what goes on on the floor of automobile dealers.”
