Tucker Carlson reacted to Rep. Maxine Waters' (D-Calif.) threat to "take [HUD Secretary Dr. Ben Carson's] a** apart" by noting she might indeed be qualified to take his job.
Carlson said Waters, a 40-year politician, lives in a 6,000 square-foot mansion worth $4.3 million that is not in her congressional district.
He asked how Waters could afford a home like that in a ritzy neighborhood while solely working as a representative of the 43rd District.
"We should take her seriously on this subject," Carlson said, calling her a "confirmed expert on the question on housing."
He said that while Waters sometimes speaks using racially-charged rhetoric, she lives in a neighborhood that is only six percent African-American.
At the same time she represents a district with the second-highest concentration of African-Americans in California.
"How did Maxine Waters pull off a housing coup like that?" he asked, adding that it "almost qualifies her to be HUD secretary herself."
