“We ain’t got no home, that’s why we’re here!”
Democratic California Rep. Maxine Waters told dozens of homeless people to “go home” after an erroneous social media post led them to believe they could get free Section 8 housing vouchers.
L.A.’s homelessness crisis boils over: Pain, confusion, anger and a congressional F-bomb
“Maxine Waters was here, and she said to come back Tuesday with our paperwork filled out,” Burnett said. “I have it, everything they asked for. But every time we get near the front of the line, they shut the door. They opened the door about 20 minutes ago and said they’re not servicing anyone else today.”
Waters told the gathering of mostly homeless people Friday that “you cannot get Section 8 vouchers here.” And later, “I want everybody to go home.”
The response was fast and angry, a voice from the crowd yelling, “We ain’t got no home, that’s why we’re here. What home we gonna go to?”
Along with that time when President Biden asked a paraplegic to stand up, this comment from Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters will be remembered in the political absurdity hall of fame.
Note: For the record, Rep. Maxine Waters doesn’t live in the South Central LA District she purportedly ‘represents’ as she live in a multi million dollar mansion miles away in the high end neighborhood of Hancock Park in Los Angeles.
