Dingbat Pelosi just can’t help herself. The Democrats decision to choose her as their House Minority Leader again was truly a blessing to the Republican Party. Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer sounded off today about their “concerns” over the nomination of brilliant, world-renowned former Presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson for Trump’s HUD Secretary. Schumer opined, “Someone who is as anti-government as him is a strange fit for Housing Secretary, to say the least.” Because apparently a HUD Secretary needs to be an advocated of excessive government spending?
Nancy Pelosi “one-upped” Schumer with an even more ignorant and unjustified criticism, when she suggested Dr. Ben Carson was “a disturbingly unqualified choice”.

Carson spent part of his childhood living in public housing in Detroit, part of a rags-to-riches story that conservatives and other admirers tout.
But critics of the Trump appointment, such as Amy Liu, the director of the Metropolitan Policy Program and the left-leaning Brookings Institution, say the powerful personal story doesn’t make up for the lack of knowledge about housing needs of high-poverty areas and how deeply they intersect with other related issues, such as racial tension with police. –WE
Really? So Trump’s new HUD Secretary’s responsibilities have something to do with racial tension issues with police?
Twitter users hammered Pelosi over her “racist” remarks:
so your saying that a minority HUD secretary will not be able to help the needs of other minorities? save me from liberal logic

Mike Huckabee had the best response as he excoriates Nancy Pelosi for her ignorant comment here:
Ben Carson is first HUD Sec to have actually lived in gov't housing. Fancy Nancy Pelosi says he's not qualified; is she racist or just dumb?
