California Congresswoman Maxine Waters raised eyebrows during a fiery speech in Selma, Alabama over the weekend; calling on Congress to pass a financial reparations bill to address racial inequality and outright threatening Housing Secretary and former Presidential nominee Ben Carson.
Waters was answering questions from audience members when she was asked whether she would sponsor a reparations bill in the US Congress; saying she’d be “happy to do that” but adding Democrats need to re-take the House in order to pass the legislation.
“I’d be happy to do that. That’s no problem,” she said. “In order to get where we need to go on this issue and other issues, we really got to understand that 2018 is important in taking back the House and taking back the Senate.”
“If we want to get to the point where we can get reparations, we’ve got to have the power to do that, Number 1, by having a supportive president would be wonderful, but taking back the House would be absolutely wonderful,” she added.
“And by the way, we’re going to take care of Ben Carson too,” she bizarrely stated.

FIREWORKS: Ben Carson SHUTS DOWN Maxine Waters Over Puerto Rican Recovery
Dr. Ben Carson shut-down hyper-liberal Congresswoman Maxine Waters on Thursday, after the left-wing lawmaker tried to convince the HUD Secretary to denounce President Trump’s hurricane recovery efforts in Puerto Rico.
Dr. Carson was speaking before the House Committee on Financial Services when the firebrand legislator pounced; pressing the Secretary and staunch Trump supporter over tweets the President made earlier this week.
“This morning, Trump threatened to abandon Puerto Rico recovery efforts. President Trump served notice Thursday that he may pull back federal relief workers from Puerto Rico, effectively threatening to abandon a US territory amid a staggering humanitarian crisis in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria […] Do you agree with the President?” asked Waters.
“I certainly agree that Puerto Rico is a very important territory, and the people from Puerto Rico have contributed greatly to the culture of America,” fired-back Carson.
“I’m not talking about that. What I’m talking about is these tweets,” she pressed.
“I have no intention of abandoning Puerto Rico, they’re a very important part of who we are,” said the Housing Secretary. “Our job is to make sure that we take care of a disaster that has occurred. Of course, it should not be abandoned.”
“There’s no question that there have been a lot of difficulties in Puerto Rico,” added Carson.

MAD MAXINE: Waters Goes Off, Compares Ben Carson with White Nationalists
Hyper-liberal Congresswoman Maxine Waters reached a new low this week, comparing Ben Carson with white nationalists in Virginia and warning Dr. Carson she plans to berate the neuro-surgeon when he appears before her committee.
Maxine was speaking at a local event in Los Angeles when she tore into the President over his reaction to the chaos that shocked Charlottesville last weekend.
“There’s so much going on… While the President was defending the white-race nationalists and the KKK and all of those alt-right groups that were basically out there in Virginia,” said Waters.
“[The protesters] were literally beating and marching and ranting about Jews and Black people,” she added. “This is what this cabinet looks like, whether we’re talking about [Secretary] Mnuchin or Ben Carson. He’s got to come before my committee.”
“If you’ve seen ‘reclaiming my time’ that I did with Mnuchin, you wait till Ben Carson,” Waters told the crowd.
Maxine was referring to her now infamous back-and-forth exchange with Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, where the firebrand liberal interrupted the Secretary dozens of times while screaming “Reclaiming my time.” The incident went viral on social media within minutes.
