There’s no explanation needed. You already know that Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) has gone off the deep end on a consistent basis, whether it is peddling conspiracy theories about Rep. Jason Chaffetz’s (R-UT) resignation from Congress, or pushing for Donald Trump’s impeachment, she’s a politician who gives zero you know whats (I can’t use the word but it begins with “F”) when it comes to achieving her goals. Heck, you saw the shameless side when Water said it wasn’t fine for Trump to fire James Comey from the FBI, but she would have been okay with it if Hillary had won the election and done the exact same thing. Trump’s impeachment isn’t going to happen, but her fighting looks like she’s doing something up on the Hill.
Now, there’s a new circle of nutty. Waters has called Ben Carson a white nationalist. She lumped in the Housing and Urban Development secretary during a town hall event last Thursday (via NTK Network):
Rep. Maxine Waters talked about Secretary Ben Carson and Secretary Steven Mnuchin in the same sentence as the white nationalist, KKK, and Nazi who participated in the violence that occurred Charlottesville VA over the weekend during a town hall in Los Angeles on Thursday.
“While the president was defending the white nationalists and the KKK and all of those alt-right groups who were basically out there in Virginia,” Waters said.
Waters continued, “literally beating and marching and ranting about Jews and black people.”
“But this is what this cabinet looks like, whether we talk about [Treasury Secretary Steve] Mnuchin or Ben Carson, who’s over at HUD,” Waters concluded. “If you think reclaiming my time that I did with Mnuchin, you wait ’til Ben Carson comes.”
Waters said last July that she was going to go after Carson when the time comes; I believe the phrase was she was going to “tear his ass apart.” Mnuchin is Jewish and Carson is black; it's probably not the best to lump them in with the Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan, congresswoman.
