Glamour’s 2017 Women of the Year award winners include such progressive notables as talk show host Samantha Bee and the entire group of Women’s March organizers, but the magazine’s “Lifetime Achievement” award ironically went to – (drum roll please) …
California Representative Maxine Waters.

Ironically because, well, other than continually shouting “impeach 45!” to anyone who will listen and managing to continue getting elected in one of America’s most liberal congressional districts, it’s really hard to pin any “lifetime achievements”on the woman.
Here’s what Glamour had to say about Waters:
With 37 years of public service under her belt, veteran lawmaker Representative Maxine Waters (D–Calif.) has long wielded her unapologetically laser-sharp tongue—surgical in its precision, devastating in its impact—in service of her progressive politics. When legislators propose policy that would turn back the clock on civil rights, dash progression on reproductive legislation, or take affordable housing away? There’s Waters, speaking truth to power. “Auntie Maxine,” as her fans like to call her, is one of the longest-serving black women in the House of Representatives, the ranking member of the House Committee on Financial Services, and an integral member of Congressional Democratic leadership. She’s now focused on building a bridge between old-guard politicians and new-school activists and has some simple advice to motivate the next generation of Maxines. “Stay woke,” she says, “and don’t forget: Reclaim your time.”
In other words, she’s outspoken, uber-liberal, and got elected a lot. For a “Lifetime Achievement” award, that seems like an awfully low bar, but then we’re talking about Glamour here.
Twitterers were equally confused about the magazine’s selection, but weren’t confused at all about Water’s ‘achievements,’ or lack thereof:
Makes accusations without proof. Admits to wanting government take overs of private companies. Has ties to pro-Communist groups. https://t.co/2KeAZCV0FF

Makes accusations without proof and has been in Congress 27 years and passed three bills. Yeah she's a winner alright. https://t.co/GhaXBNBgRo

Her achievement would be getting rich off the taxpayers, and having her name on exactly 3 – count 'em 3 – bills. Joke's on her constituents. https://t.co/TLRcVa7x5g
