Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Ben Carson stepped right in the middle of the war of words between Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., and President Donald Trump.
It all started when Waters sent a critical letter to the White House, essentially blaming Trump for the homelessness crisis in her home state of California.
Carson, normally a reserved character, said enough is enough.
So Carson responded with some heat of his own, penning a scathing letter to the congresswoman.
The HUD Secretary scolded the notoriously corrupt California Democrat in the letter, putting Waters on blast for her “shameless” hypocrisy.
“My mother always taught me that people shouldn’t throw rocks, especially while they live in a glass house,” Carson wrote. “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.”
The issue of homelessness in the Democrat-led state of California is reaching an all-time level of danger. Trump’s White House had been preparing plans to fix it since the problem has gotten so out of hand under liberal leadership.
The exacerbated conditions, Carson suggested, aren’t a reason to blame Trump.
The awful conditions are a reason to self-reflect on the job that California Democrats have been doing.
“Shamelessness is a career politician of 30 years laying blame,” he wrote. “Shamelessness is allowing more than 55,000 Americans to live on the very streets they represent.”
Carson also called out Waters for the fact that in the past she’d turned down many meetings to solve the issue — providing evidence that she only wanted to pen an angry letter to the president for the media spectacle.
The seasoned congresswoman has made her attacks on the White House into a brand for her liberal supporters.
“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,” Carson said.
Waters, responded to the fierce letter, saying to The Hill: “Carson is like a duck out of water. [Carson] should contain his tantrums and leave his mother out of this.”

Further, she called Carson’s time as HUD secretary a failure…
One look around her home state of California, and one could say that her time as an elected official has been far, far worse.
