Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) sent a letter to the White House in October, demanding to know more about the administration’s reported plan to take homeless people out of California camps and put them into federal housing. Apparently irate at the thought of President Trump actually taking action on an issue that California Democrats have been unable or unwilling to address, Waters accused the president of acting disgracefully.
“Your shamelessness knows no bounds,” California’s most prominent idiot wrote. “From day one of your presidency, you have attacked our democracy and now you have set your ire on the 550,000 Americans who on any given night experience homelessness.”
Trump didn’t bother responding to this mental midget, instead leaving it to HUD Secretary Ben Carson to handle his light work. Carson did so this week in a vicious response that would have had a more intelligent opponent licking their wounds.
“My mother always taught me that people shouldn’t throw rocks, especially while they live in a glass house,” Carson wrote. “Because of that wise lesson, I was a little surprised to read your hostile letter to President Trump regarding the record number of homeless Americans in California, particularly in your district.
“Shamelessness is a career politician of 30 years laying blame,” he continued. “Shamelessness is allowing more than 55,000 Americans to live on the very streets they represent. To me, the most compassionate, obvious, and logical solution would be to get as many homeless Americans off the streets — with a roof over their heads — as soon as humanly possible.”
No, no, we must stand around, do nothing productive, and then run another campaign on the promise to fix the problem. It’s the Democratic Party way!
“I have sent multiple letters to your office and requested numerous meetings, but each time you’ve refused,” Carson wrote. “Basic manners elude you and it seems that instead of producing results, you’re more interested in producing cheap headlines at the President’s expense — like a true career politician.”
Instead of recognizing that she’d been bested, Waters responded with some ad hominem attacks on Carson himself, saying he was a “complete failure at HUD.”
“Most recently,” she told The Hill, “it was reported that he and this disgraceful President want to raze homeless camps, round up persons experiencing homelessness and force them to live in unused and unsuitable federal buildings.”
Yeah, those terrible people – Carson and Trump. They actually want to put a roof over the heads of the homeless.
Shamelessness doesn’t even begin to describe this abomination of a lawmaker.
