In a recent episode of Tucker Carlson Tonight on FOX News, Carlson asked the question that all inquiring minds want to know: How does Maxine Waters afford to live in a $4.3 million mansion? And why does the race-hustling, Marxist class warfare-spewing Congresswoman live outside of the district she’s supposed to represent — one of the poorest — in one of the whitest and richest areas of Los Angeles?
In a July 19, interview in The New York Times Magazine, Maxine Waters, unable to effectively answer Tucker Carlson’s question, pulled the race card (shocker, right?), calling the Fox host “racist” for even asking the question:
NYT Magazine: “Tucker Carlson went after you recently: He used some very loaded language about your home, which he implied you could not afford on a government salary.”
Maxine Waters: “I own several properties. The way he talked about it is: What right does an African-American woman have to do well? He doesn’t know anything about my investments, about the house that I’ve lived in for 25, 30 years. This idea of ‘‘how could she afford that?’’ is racist, and I just dismiss it.”
Carlson is continuing to ask the question until a proper and logical answer is given and said that one of the “investments” Waters may be referring to was her husband’s investment in One United Bank, which received $12 million in taxpayer bailout money that Maxine Waters voted for in 2008. Or, perhaps it was Maxine Waters paying her daughter $600,000 out of campaign contributions.
Carlson said he is not passing judgment on the matter but will continue to ask the questions until a real answer is given, other than just shouting “racist!”
