The congresswoman told CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer on Monday that when it comes to nighttime footwear, her feet are left out in the cold.
On his show, Blitzer questioned whether Waters would “take off [her] slippers and get out there and march with him.”
Waters replied, “I’ve never owned a pair of bedroom slippers.”
While Waters might be lacking a pair of evening kicks, there is one thing she certainly isn’t in need of — a box of tissues.
Nearing the end of the interview, Blitzer confirmed with the congresswoman that “you’re not complaining, you’re not grumbling, you’re not crying — he is not talking about you.”
“Maxine Waters doesn’t cry,” she replied. “Maxine Waters works.”
