Following her confrontation with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin in a House Financial Services Committee hearing last week, a singer has made a remix of Rep. Maxine Waters’ repeated phrase “reclaiming my time.”
Waters, an avid Trump hater, was incensed with Mnuchin during the hearing for not replying to a letter she sent his agency in May inquiring about the president’s potential ties to Russia. When Mnuchin did not directly answer her question, she repeatedly interjected the phrase, “reclaiming my time,” as he tried to speak.
Waters (D-Calif.) made headlines recently for hinting at possibly running for president in 2020 and for comments she made about the Trump administration.
The singer, Mykal Kilgore, was inspired to produce the video which he promptly tweeted, referring to Waters using Millennials’ nick name for her.
“Our beloved ‘Auntie’ Maxine Waters laid this sermon down so good that I had to sing about it! Whenever anybody tries to distract me or block me (even with praise or platitudes), I’m gonna have to let them know that I’m #ReclaimingMyTime,” Kilgore wrote in a description of the song.
The song’s lyrics didn’t stray far from their inspiration.
“You want to talk about the things I’ve done, but I’m reclaiming my time. You want to speak on the battles I’ve won, but I’m reclaiming my time,” Kilgore sings. “That’s not what I brought you here to share, and I’m reclaiming my time. And don’t read my resume because I was there, and I’m reclaiming my time.”
