California Representative Maxine Waters once again proves what an imbecile she really is, as she once again denigrates HUD Secretary Ben Carson. Does she have any idea of where Carson came from – that he came from dirt-poor stock to rise up on his own, to become the success he is today? Evidently not.
from the Blaze:
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) continued her mockery of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson while speaking to the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Town Hall on Civil Rights Thursday.
What did she say?
“Look at Ben Carson. My God. My grandmother would call him an educated fool,” she said.
“Here’s a man who has a reputation of being a highly competent surgeon,” she added, “but when he talks about poor people, he says they’re the cause of their poverty. He doesn’t understand why you didn’t do what he did and why you didn’t make it like he made it. And he doesn’t know the difference between slavery and immigration.”
What was she referring to?
Carson was castigated by the left for saying in May that poverty was a “state of mind.” While he was trying to explain that many poor people put mental obstacles in their own way to keep them from succeeding, the left, like Waters, made it appear that he was blaming poor people for their economic condition.
