When asked about what he would do about the homeless crisis in California he said he has a secret plan given to him by Ben Carson.

He wouldn’t elaborate on this top secret plan.

Lol he’s an idiot.

excerpt: Larry Elder’s scheduled tour of homeless encampments in Venice ended shortly after it began Wednesday morning, with the leading Republican in the gubernatorial recall race hastily exiting in a Suburban after being angrily confronted by a group of homeless people and advocates.

Elder — who had arrived in his new “Recall Express” campaign bus shortly after casting his ballot at a voting center across town — spent roughly 12 minutes in the neighborhood, with his departure hastened by what appeared to be an egg thrown in his direction.

“It kind of glanced his head,” an Elder campaign staffer said of the object.

Elder’s visit began auspiciously enough, with a handful of Gold’s Gym patrons gathering outside the black-and-red campaign bus to cheer the candidate as he stepped off.

...

The confrontation with Elder heated up as the group turned onto encampment-filled 3rd Avenue, with a handful of people circling the group, screaming profanities at Elder and shouting at him to “get the hell out of here.”

“He has no business down here,” Sarah Duke, a homeless woman who is 3½ months pregnant and lives in the nearby encampment, said just before Elder’s abrupt departure. “If you ain’t going to help us, move ... on.”

Wouldn't be surprised if this response from the people in the encampment wasn't exactly what he was hoping to have on film. Keep an eye on your crazy uncle's Facebook -- pink haired gorilla mask egg lady is about to be all over it.

He tweeted a photo of a gas station on Olympic and Westwood and said It was Gavin Newsom’s fault our gas prices are high, what a tool

That white lady throwing an egg at him while wearing a gorilla mask is extremely sus imo. You're telling me his security just let her swing on another guy, punching him right in the face, and then she casually walks away? Why wasn't she immediately detained? Why didn't her mask get ripped off?

Idk that I'm buying this. Stranger things have been faked.

Edit: lol some pretty hateful DMs on this one. Keep em coming.

Lol the only reason for him to go to a homeless encampment is to get a hostile reception. He got what he was looking for and has no reason to stick around longer.

Does it get anymore racist than a fat white women in a gorilla mask throwing eggs at a Blackman?

A white woman in a monkey mask trying to attack a black person. It's sad to see racism alive and well in Los Angeles.

Did they even know who he was? Sounds like a typical reaction

At a campaign stop later that afternoon at Brent’s Deli in Northridge, Elder received a far warmer reception, with patrons clapping, cheering and filming as Elder walked around the restaurant booths.

Sadly, sounds about right for around here

People that can’t house or feed themselves and leave 60 gallons of trash in my driveway every week manage some grand political statement? Seems unlikely.

Rights don’t have to be lost. You can have commitment programs with due process built in. Challenge it in court if you think it’s unfair. If you lose you stay in the drug treatment or mental health center.
