Ben Carson slams Maxine Waters as 'true career politician' with no 'basic manners'
Ben Carson came out of the woodwork this week to Defend President Trump while slamming Maxine Waters. Carson said Waters is a "true career politician" who cares more about getting some "cheap headlines" while she should be trying to get all the homeless people in her district off the streets.
The Washington Times said, "the letter came in response to a letter Ms. Waters, chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee, sent to President Trump last month demanding clarification on reports that the administration was considering moving homeless people from Los Angeles and other California cities off the streets and into unused government facilities."
Carson makes a good point. Waters has served for so many years, yet there's so many problems in her district that it doesn't appear she's made much progress. However, to many watching from the outside, it seems like she's got plenty of time to talk poorly of the president and potentially place blame on him, regardless of her own district issues which remain often unsolved.
“Your shamelessness knows no bounds,” Ms. Waters wrote Oct. 28. “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.”
In his response, Mr. Carson blasted Ms. Waters for lacking basic manners and ignoring his repeated attempts to discuss the issue in person.

“My mother always taught me that people shouldn’t throw rocks, especially while they live in a glass house,” he wrote, according to a copy of the letter obtained by Politico. “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.”
Carson's biggest statement is when he calls Maxine Waters a career politician of 30 years who lays blame on others.
He said, “Shamelessness is a career politician of 30 years laying blame... 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."
Carson claims he tried meeting with Maxine Waters many times, but she didn't accept.
"I have sent multiple letters to your office and requested numerous meetings, but each time you’ve refused. 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."
As far as we know, Maxine Waters has yet to respond to Ben Carson's harsh letter.
There's not much she can say about it considering the poor results of her career and the fact she won't meet with Carson to help work on issues together.
