Of course, Waters doesn’t actually live in the poverty-stricken district she represents, she lives in a multi-million dollar mansion that ISN’T in the district:
Artwork featuring Waters’ face under the words “POVERTY PIMP” and “IMPEACH MAXINE WATERS” are popping up on bus benches and a pole outside Waters’ $4.8 million mansion in upscale Hancock Park — which is worlds away from the poverty-stricken district she represents.
Her indigent constituents wonder aloud how she can afford the lavish, nearly $5 million house.
Of course, that didn’t stop Waters from making some nasty claims about HUD Secretary Ben Carson, who actually grew up in poverty. Waters seems to think he knows nothing about housing, even though he actually lived in it. Waters claims Carson doesn’t care about people in housing, except she’s the one who can’t stand to be in her own district and is nothing but a poverty pimp herself.
She actually had the audacity to slander Carson in a speech over the weekend, completely embarrassing herself:
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) ripped into Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson in a speech Saturday, saying Carson “doesn’t care about people in public housing.”
“[Carson] knows nothing about the mission of HUD,” Waters said in a speech at the Essence Festival in New Orleans. “He doesn’t care about people in public housing. He believes that if you are poor, it is your own fault. And he doesn’t know the difference between an immigrant and a slave.”
Waters also warned Carson that she would tough on him when he testifies before the House Committee on Financial Services, on which she is the ranking member.
“[If he] things that I am going to give him a pass, I am going to take his ass apart,” Waters said.
Waters has to be one of the most despicable members of Congress to ever crawl out from under a rock. Not only does this woman rip people off and get away with it, but she could not care less about the constituents she refuses to even live near.
It’ll be great theater to watch Carson rip HER a new one with the grace, intelligence, knowledge and class that Waters severely lacks.
