Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters reportedly tried to discourage a local journalist from reporting on a story about her remarks at a chaotic event when hundreds of homeless people in Los Angeles showed up to score Section 8 housing vouchers after responding to misleading information on social media.

Last week, after a nonprofit homeless advocacy group had planned the event to assist the homeless in obtaining emergency shelter, an “unofficial social media post” inaccurately said that whoever showed up would receive vouchers for permanent, subsidized housing. With the vouchers being very rare, the announcement generated a large turnout of people who became unruly after showing up.

The South Los Angeles office of Fathers and Mothers Who Care was overwhelmed by the miserable throng who, believing that they had a chance to get off the streets, had lined up since before daybreak only to have their hopes doused which resulted in confusion and anger for hundreds of Waters’ constituents.

According to a report by the Los Angeles Times, “heated arguments broke out among the hundreds of people who turned out for assistance” which “overwhelmed Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority workers” who were there at the behest of Waters who “delivered emotionally charged remarks to the crowd Friday, at one point using an expletive to defend her efforts to relieve the city’s housing and homelessness crisis.”

The “expletive” referred to the F-bomb dropped by the congresswoman who angrily reacted to the disappointed crowd after her stunningly out-of-touch remark for them to “go home” which prompted one homeless person to say “we don’t got no home” at the rattled octogenarian lawmaker who became defensive.

“Waters, who wore a powder blue pantsuit and had a black face mask pulled down below her chin, laughed and said, ‘Nothing is going to happen here today.’ Her remarks were captured in video of the event obtained by The Times,” the paper reported. “Less than half a minute later, the congresswoman responded to a question from the founder of Kingdom Warriors Foundation, a local housing advocacy nonprofit. Jabbing her finger into the air, Waters said, ‘Excuse me, there’s nobody in Washington who works for their people any f— harder than I do. I don’t want to hear this. No, no, no.'”

“Waters then answered a plea that she work with the community to address the housing crisis: ‘That’s what I do every day. The money that you got thus far came from me in Washington, D.C.’ She walked away moments later after telling the crowd, ‘I will continue to work. I will get the information out to you,'” according to the Times.

Auntie Maxine also lashed out at the Los Angeles Times investigative reporter who was writing an account of the day’s events, making what could be perceived as a veiled threat during a phone call to Washington in which she dismissed the kerfuffle as “a bunch of rumors” while attempting to discourage the story’s publication.

“You’ll hurt yourself and the community trying to put this together without background,” she said to reporter Connor Sheets. “I don’t want you to start trying to write it, you won’t understand it.”

Twitter users reacted to Rep. Waters’ latest public relations dumpster fire.

Sheets’ report provides the accounts of some of the people who were turned away including a 77-year-old disabled woman.

“I’m homeless. I’m living wherever I can. And when I heard about this, I came down here on Friday,” said Joyce Burnett.

“Maxine Waters was here, and she said to come back Tuesday with our paperwork filled out,” she 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.”

“I had a doctor’s appointment I had to cancel because I thought I would be seen here today. I wasted two whole days of my life doing this — Friday and today,” said 36-year-old Cre King who has been homeless for about six months and responded to the erroneous Instagram post. “We’re all here, we’re all struggling. Times are hard.”

“Blanca Jimenez, Waters’ district director, did not provide answers to a list of detailed questions sent via email, instead providing a link to a TV station’s glowing coverage of Waters’ appearance at the Friday event along with an image of Waters addressing the crush of people in the heart of her congressional district,” the paper reported. “’Someone shared this photo with the office,’ Jimenez wrote. ‘Isn’t she brave?'”

Whether there will be a price to pay at the ballot box for Waters come November is unknown although it’s doubtful considering that Democrats in distressed areas continue to vote against their own self-interests by electing politicians who never do anything that actually improves their lives.
