Waters has a new target
Maxine Waters is typically seen rambling about Trump and touting impeachment. She has continued to pursue the impeachment of our POTUS each and every time there is outrage over his latest move despite failure to launch.
Now Waters has a new target. She has now directed her discombobulated rage at Ben Carson. She claims that “I am going to take his a** apart”. Carson will be testifying in front a financial committee that Waters is currently a ranking member on. Scroll down for more.
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 was referring to Carson’s remarks at a March event for HUD employees in which he referred to slaves brought to America as “immigrants.”
“That’s what America is about. A land of dreams and opportunity,” Carson had said. “There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, worked even longer, even harder for less.”
Carson also said in May that poverty was “a state of mind.”
“You take somebody that has the right mindset, you take everything from them and put them on the street and I guarantee in a little while they’ll be right back up there,” he said in a SiriusXM radio interview in May. “And you take somebody with the wrong mindset, you can give them everything in the world, they’ll work their way right back down to the bottom.”
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 proves yet again that she is just out to go after Trump and his administration.
