Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) is not here for Donald Trump, his racist comments, his sexist comments, all his comments or his inauguration. She doesn’t want any part of this president, and she couldn’t hide her disgust during a recent appearance on MSNBC Live With Tamron Hall. Waters, the representative for California’s 43rd Congressional District, didn’t mince her words, noting: “I don’t honor him. I don’t respect him.”

This wasn’t just for Waters; this was for the culture. Watch below—and it’s OK; I teared up with pride, too.
