Gala’s offbeat chant
CALIFORNIA congresswoman Maxine Waters did not hold back during Glamour’s Women of the Year Awards in Brooklyn on Monday, starting the chant “Impeach 45.” Waters, who was honored as a “Woman of the Year” and was introduced by Zendaya with a video that featured Gloria Steinem, told the crowd, “You recognize when a leader is dangerous, even if that leader is the president of the United States of America. I want you to know that you can stand up to him or anybody else. For those who say to me, ‘You are asking for something too soon and too early, be careful, don’t jeopardize yourself, don’t say what you’re saying right now,’ I will continue to say, ‘Impeach him! Impeach him! Impeach him!’ ” which got the starry crowd joining in. Nicole Kidman, Solange Knowles and astronaut Peggy Whitson were also honored at the Brooklyn event.
