Tucker Carlson Slams Maxine Waters For ‘Pulling Off a Housing Coup’ Amid Her Attacks on HUD Secretary Carson

On Wednesday night, Tucker Carlson took aim at Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) for her recent remarks on HUD Secretary Dr. Ben Carson, including how she was going to “take his ass apart.”

The Fox News host mentioned that he had previously mocked Waters in the past, but said “we should take her seriously” on the subject of housing.

He noted her 6,000-square-foot $4.3 million mansion in a wealthy neighborhood in Los Angeles.

“How could she afford a place like that after having spent the last 40 years working in government?” he asked. “We hate to speculate.”

Carlson also asked how she could keep getting re-elected in a district she doesn’t even live in. He added that the district she represents has the 2nd-highest black population in California but the neighborhood she actually lives in is only 6% black.

“How did Maxine Waters pull off a housing coup like that? Who knows, but it almost qualifies her to be HUD secretary herself,” he concluded.
