Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters, who is 79 years old, said on “MSNBC Live” Saturday that she’s been “adopted by millennials.”

“I’ve been adopted by millennials, and they, you know, refer to me as Auntie Maxine,” the congresswoman said. “And I want to be an enabler. I want to open up the process for them. We have some very talented young people, who are doing podcasts and who are broadcasters, and they have not really been welcomed into, you know, the Congress of the United States in ways that they have spaces that they can, you know, cover this State of the Union.”

“So I’ve created a millennial role. And I’ve invited as many millennials who are doing this kind of work as I possibly can. I’ve invited members to go in and do interviews with them. And right now, I think we have about 45 members who are going to come, and probably more will be signing up, so they can sit down and get in touch with this population that’s gonna make a difference in 2018.”

Waters is set to respond to President Trump’s State of the Union speech by giving her own speech. The California congresswoman has made a name for herself since Trump’s election by being strongly anti-Trump.
