U.S. Congresswoman Jennifer Wexton (D-VA) posted a video of herself questioning the Secretary of HUD, Dr. Ben Carson in a hearing today.

Rep. Wexton also added some context for what was happening in the video. She tweeted:

Today I gave @SecretaryCarsonthe opportunity to apologize for his remarks slurring transgender women as, “big, hairy men.”

Regrettably, he declined that opportunity.

Hateful words translate into discriminatory policy—and Secretary Carson has demonstrated that time and again.

There’s only one problem, nothing about what she said was true, and you only have to watch the video to prove she’s lying.

During the exchange, the soft-spoken, pediatric neurosurgeon barely summoned a single brain cell to defend himself in his match up with the dingbat Democrat congresswoman, who tried but failed miserably, in her attempt to embarrass Trump’s HUD secretary.

Wexton started, “I wanted to give you a chance to apologize for comments you made during a meeting you had with HUD staff last month, where you described trans women as ‘Big, hairy men.'”

Dr. Carson replied: “Well, first of all, I didn’t describe transgender women that way. I was relating a story that a women’s group told me about big, hairy men, who were not transgender women, by the way, coming into their facility and having to be accepted because of the rules that were in place.

Wexton: “What was the women’s group that told you this story?”

Dr. Carson: “Uh, it was a group from Alaska.”

Wexton: “What was their name?”

Dr. Carson: “I forget their name.”

For some reason, Wexton thought she’d make a ridiculous attempt at threatening further review of the imbecilic conversation Dr. Carson had with his HUD staff. Wexton asked, “Okay, could you get that for us, please?”

Wexton, who was disappointed in Dr. Carson’s response to her gotcha question, asked again, “And, so, you don’t feel the need to apologize for those comments?”

Dr. Carson, who was clearly at the end of his rope with the dingbat congresswoman, who was manufacturing a crisis, responded: “No, I think this whole concept of political correctness—you can’t say this, you can’t say that, you can’t repeat what someone said, is total foolishness and we need to be more mature than that.”



Has political correctness gone too far? Are Democrats using contrived, politically correct attacks on their opponents as a tool to destroy them?
