Tucker Responds to Maxine Waters Calling ‘TCT’ Racist
Tucker Carlson responded to Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif), who called his show racist after he pointed out that she lives in a multi-million-dollar mansion outside her district.
Carlson previously questioned how Waters, who represents one of the poorest districts in California, lives in the $4.3 million home.
He noted that she has held elected office for nearly 40 years and is one of the wealthiest members of Congress.
“We’re not alleging wrongdoing here, but really, how did this happen?” he asked.
Carlson revealed that Waters “investments” may be those that have to do with One United Bank.
Waters’ husband, Sid Williams, was a board member of the bank at the time it received a $12 million bailout during the 2008 market turmoil.
“Maybe those are her ‘investments’,” Carlson said, adding that she also paid $600,000 to her daughter from her campaign chest.
Waters recently said that she “owns several properties” and “the way Carlson talked about it is ‘what right does an African-American woman have to do well?'”
“He doesn’t know anything about my investments,” she added.
Carlson said he reserves final judgment on the matter, and has repeatedly invited Waters on his program.
