Default 11 People Show Up to Maxine Waters' Campaign Event to Energize Millennials

11 people? Sh*t, I had more peeps in my house tokin' some dank herb last weekend.

I guess "Auntie Maxine" isn't the popular megastar she thinks she is.

11 People Show Up to Maxine Waters' Campaign Event to Energize Millennials

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) held an event on Sunday to get millennials energized about her re-election campaign, but it was sparsely attended.

The two-hour "Auntie Maxine Meet & Greet Tweet-a-thon" was billed as a chance for young people to join "top social media influencers" to support "our fearless champion in Congress" and "reclaim our time."

“Millennials come energized & ready to get out the vote!” a flyer read.

Video and photos from the event, however, appear to show less than a dozen people there for the "Tweet-a-thon."

Tucker Carlson said Waters portrays herself as the leader of a youthful, energetic, anti-Trump resistance, but she may be "an old person's version of what young people like."

"It turns out about ten people total showed up at Waters' event. That's not much of a movement, though it is enough to start a pick-up baseball team," Carlson quipped.

Despite the dismal turnout at her event for millennials, Waters - who has repeatedly called for the president to be impeached - advanced in Tuesday's primary and will take on Republican Omar Navarro in November to represent California's 43rd congressional district. Waters, 79, has held the seat since 2013 and served in Congress since 1991.

See Carlson explain why Waters would win a gold medal if there were a "Who's Offended Olympics."

But I fear that come voting time each Dem will vote.. Will the Republicans come out in numbers?

Plus the nation does go the other way when one party has control and gets little done, they feel helps them..


So why worry shi…..t happens...…………

Nope...She's a solid wack-a-doodle in a wack-a-doodle district...

Quote:
Upon the retirement of Augustus F. Hawkins in 1990, Waters was elected to the United States House of Representatives for California's 29th congressional district with over 79% of the popular vote. She has been reelected consistently from this district, renumbered as the 35th District in 1992 and as the 43rd in 2012, with at least 70 percent of the vote.
