Maxine Waters makes $174,000 per year, but she has a $4.5 million mansion in Los Angeles in addition to two other homes worth around $1 million. She can insult wealthy men, like President Donald Trump, all she wants, but a new video shows the brutal karma that has arrived on her front lawn — and it is not pretty.
KABC reports that black and Latino protesters, complete with a mariachi band, have gathered in front of the Congresswoman’s $4.5 million mansion in Los Angeles, California. Waters has been calling for the impeachment of Trump for some time, but now, it appears the “Hashtag Impeach Maxine” movement has arrived on her front doorstep.
Omar Navarro, a political opponent of Waters in California who was at the scene, explained, “‘Hashtag Impeach Maxine.’ See Maxine is talking about impeaching President Donald Trump and yet she doesn’t ask herself what about her? What about her not doing her job for 35 years?”
The protesters are sick and tired of Waters preaching about poverty, allegedly caused by Republicans like Trump, then living a lavish, elitist lifestyle. “She is not representing her constituents, especially the black constituents,” protesters explained. “She thinks by putting down our president, we’re going to like her more. Every time she talks, she makes me want to throw up.”

These protesters have a number of valid points, as Waters’ 6,000 square foot home “is protected with wrought-iron gates at the front doors and gates for driveways and patios on each side of the Mediterranean-style abode. And add a long brick wall that protects the side of the sprawling property. There are some gates and fencing in the back too, near the custom barbecue area and the detached structure that houses Maxine’s newly built indoor pool,” reported True Pundit. Not bad for a politician who has built a career on complaining about poverty in America.
“This nation has always struggled with how it was going to deal with poor people and people of color. Every few years you will see some great change in the way that they approach this. We’ve had the war on poverty that never really got into waging a real war on poverty.” — Maxine Waters
Perhaps, instead of calling for President Donald Trump’s impeachment and constantly blasting Republicans for their supposed lack of concern about poverty, Waters should share some of her own money with the poor, rather than buying and renovating million-dollar homes.
Of course, she is living the left-wing double standard as established by many before her and likely feels that she is entitled to live the way that she does. If many in her district, these protesters included, get their way, Waters may end up with the treatment that she wants Republicans like Trump to suffer.
