It’s not pretty…
Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson criticized Rep. Maxine Waters on Monday of missing “basic manners” over a message she sent out to President Trump last month saying that his “shamelessness knows no bounds,” according to a statement.
Waters’ letter of Oct. 28 asked for feedback to the possible proposal of the administration to drive homeless Californians off the street and out of homeless camps, Politico reported.
“Shamelessness,” Carson wrote, “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,” he said about her district in South Los Angeles County.
Carson claimed that he sent several letters to Waters’ office to talk about homelessness in her area, but said that she had refused to meet him.
“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,” he added, according to Politico.
Waters said Carson was a “complete failure” as HUD secretary in a comment to The Hill.
