Rep. Maxine Waters doesn’t miss an opportunity to screech against President Trump but many are blasting her for ignoring her own “cesspool” of a district.
Footage supposedly from the California Democrat’s district 43 revealed eye-popping images of the shameful state of life in the Los Angeles district that Waters has represented for nearly three decades.
Maxine Waters district 43 is the worst in Los Angeles. She has been
an elected official for 28 years & her district looks like a cesspool. Maxine doesn’t live in district 43. She lives in a million+ $$ mansion outside her district. Reprehensible! pic.twitter.com/6jyiXELgC4

No telling how the congresswoman continues to be reelected when she allows her district to exist in this state while she comfortably lives in a multi-million dollar mansion in a wealthy L.A. neighborhood.
“How’d she afford a place like that?” Fox News; Tucker Carlson asked in a segment one year ago. “How does she keep getting reelected despite not living in her own congressional district? ”
That district, according to Carlson, had the “second highest percentage of African-American residents” in the state while the neighboring area where Waters actually resides has only a six percent black population.
One can only imagine the vitriol from the left if the tables were turned and Waters was a Republican.
Sad she does not care. Unbelievable she keeps getting reelected. Glad I don’t live there.

While the Democrat spews unhinged threats against Trump and his supporters, ranting about the rights of illegal immigrants and repeatedly calling to impeach the president, her constituents blindly keep reelecting her.
Conservative watchdog Judicial Watch filed an ethics complaint against Waters for “inciting violence” with her call for protesters to confront Trump administration officials in public.
“The House has to decide whether they’re going to allow its members to use the House as a platform and its power and position to attack and incite violence,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton told “Fox & Friends.”

“Words fail me,” one Twitter user said, reacting to the video of Waters’ district.
I’ve walked down this street – but it’s been nearly twenty years. Terrible – it was nowhere near this bad then. It breaks my heart. I thought the area was filled with desperation then but now? Words fail me.

“When did this become acceptable? It’s disgusting,” another tweeted.
@NancyPelosi ‘s in San Francisco is just as bad if not worse. Why are citizens putting up with this? When did this become acceptable? It’s disgusting

Some contended that the video was not actually Waters’ district but neighboring ones in south Los Angeles.
San Pedro and 6th is outside her district. You can just google these street names to find where this is, it’s just north of downtown on google maps, much farther north east of her district, which includes Hawthorne, Inglewood, and more

The footage allegedly from district 43 – or any American city – is a testament to the real agenda of the Democrats who continue to seek power at any cost, even at the expense of its ignorant citizens.
Mad Maxine got rich off the backs of people in District 43…

The Dems live off of exploiting the poor and dont actually FIX anything. Why would they? Blame race and injustice all the way to the bank
Reactions to the video were filled with scathing rebukes for Waters and the voters who keep her in office.
Which is worse: corrupt politicians OR the people that keep voting for the corrupt politicians?

Very sad @RepMaxineWaters. People deserve better, much better. Shameful & horrific. How the hell do you look in the mirror every day.

No one should have to live like this in America…Mad Maxine should be helping her district instead of crying about illegals. Oh I forgot. She was elected by this district but does not live in it. VOTE FOR OMAR!

And keep in mind, this is just a small piece of LA; it goes on for miles and miles like that. Hence why I #WalkedAway from So Cal and now enjoying beautiful northern Idaho.

Maxine Waters has only represented herself in the last 28 years.
— John D. Lyons (@Patriot0608) July 5, 2018
I agree. They’ve been re-electing her for almost 30 years, and none of her behavior is news. If the people in her district decide to re-elect her, then they deserve what they get.

If she really cared about her community, her constituents she would live in the district she represents.
I believe our founding Fathers wanted all representatives to live in the districts of their constituents. #WalkAway
