Fox News host Tucker Carlson hammered California Rep. Maxine Waters for her blatant hypocrisy Wednesday, noting that despite her claims that she cares so deeply about poor minorities, she herself appears to prefer segregating herself away from them.
“The district Waters actually represents in Congress has the second highest percentage of African-American residents in the state of California,” he said. “Now the neighborhood where Waters actually lives, is just 6 percent black, or as she might put it herself if she didn’t live there, it’s segregated, like 1950s-level segregated.”
And incredibly rich.
(S)he lives in a 6,000-square foot, $4.3 million mansion in one of the wealthiest neighborhoods in Los Angeles,” Carlson noted. “Now how’d she afford a place like that? After having spent the last 40 years working in government? We’d hate to speculate.”
That speculation aside, what’s more concerning is the glaring dichotomy between her rhetoric and her actions.
During a speech Saturday at the Essence Festival in New Orleans, for instance, she threatened to “take his a** apart” the next time Carson testifies before the House Financial Services Committee, according to The Hill.
Listen to Tucker’s response to this and her other comments in the video below:
She also claimed Carson “doesn’t care about people in public housing,”
“(Carson) knows nothing about the mission of HUD,” she said. “He doesn’t care about people in public housing. He believes that if you are poor, it is your own fault.”
Wrong. He simply believes — rightly so, I might add — that one’s mindset plays an important role in whether one remains in poverty or rises up out of it.
“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 noted during a radio interview two months ago. “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.”
He would know. He dug his way out of poverty the hard way. And while he wants to assist the poor, he knows that helping them entails offering a hand up, not a handout.
Waters’ strategy for helping differs like night and day. She prefers robbing the middle class of its wealth and funneling that money into the pockets of the poor; all while she sits peacefully in her cozy and shamefully segregated mansion.
What a hypocrite.
