Maxine Waters has been on a rant complaining that there is uncertainty resulting from Trumps administration. She launched into Trump, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and HUD Secretary Ben Carson having appeared before the Los Angeles Community Review Board.
Waters said, “Mr. Mnuchin, who is the Treasury Secretary, who is responsible for over 36,000 foreclosures in this area, is now the Secretary of the Treasury,” repeating herself. “Standing next to him just yesterday, or day before yesterday, I’m getting these days mixed up,” the 79-year-old California congresswoman said.
She continued her rant by claiming that the president was defending the white-wing (sic) nationalists and the KKK and all of those alt-right groups that were basically out there in Virginia literally beating and marching and ranting about Jews and black people.
Waters then promised she would skewer him soon, adding that Trump has got to come before her committee. However, she isn’t the only one attacking Carson.
A report from the Washington Times revealed that Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson said on Wednesday that his Virginia home was recently vandalized with hateful rhetoric about President Trump.
Mr. Carson wrote a now-viral Facebook post in response to the deadly protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, recalling two personal stories that demonstrated the benefits of Americans listening to one another and taking the high road as opposed to wallowing in their own hate.
“Regarding all of the racial and political strife emanating from the events in Charlottesville last weekend, let me relate a story,” Mr. Carson began. “Several years ago we bought a farm in rural Maryland. One of the neighbors immediately put up a Confederate flag. A friend of ours who is an African-American three-star general was coming to visit and immediately turned around concluding that he was in the wrong place. Interestingly, all the other neighbors immediately put up American flags shaming the other neighbor who took down the Confederate flag.”
“More recently our home in Virginia along with that of a neighbor was vandalized by people who also wrote hateful rhetoric about President Trump,” he continued. “We were out of town, but other kind, embarrassed neighbors cleaned up most of the mess before we returned.”
A black newspaper in Detroit, the Michigan Chronicle, tore into Carson and labeled him the “Shame of Detroit”. The paper appeared to suggest that HUD Secretary Ben Carson is imminently qualified to be a House Negro, but remains as unqualified as ever to lead HUD.
