BOOM! Huckabee Goes BALLISTIC…Leaves Nancy Pelosi HUMILIATED!

A long-time Republican questioned the sanity and ethics of the current poster girl of the Democratic Party. She apparently can’t handle appointments from the next president.

President-elect Donald Trump announced Ben Carson as secretary of the Housing and Urban Development.

The selection drew quick and scathing criticism from leftist lawmakers who hate good people working for the good of people. GOP lawmakers and supporters responded in kind to leftist ire.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is asking whether House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is “racist” or “just dumb” after she criticized the choice of Dr. Ben Carson to serve as secretary of the Housing and Urban Development Department.

“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?” Huckabee, a former 2016 presidential candidate, tweeted Monday.

Pelosi called Carson a world-renowned neurosurgeon, but said he is “a disconcerting and disturbingly unqualified choice to lead a department as complex and consequential.”

Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., and Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-NY, also questioned the selection of Carson Monday.

Pelosi said Carson did not have the “experience to protect the rights of homeowners and renters, particularly in low income and minority communities,” a comment that seems to have prompted Huckabee’s response.

Trump’s pick and the criticism of that pick were heralded in The New York Times. Huckabee apparently picked up on Pelosi’s criticism there, along with details that Carson once lived in public housing.

The NYT corrected its own story, showing it failed to confirm the public housing comment with its source. Carson apparently didn’t live in public housing.

Shortly after the first message, Huckabee issued another statement, based on the correction Carson had not actually lived in public housing.

“Mea culpa-was wrong about B Carson living in gov’t housing. Sorry—got my info from a “fake news” site-NY Times,” Huckabee wrote.

Carson will take over in January for former San Antonio mayor Julian Castro. He has said he opposes the Obama administration’s housing diversity rule.

Democrats are showing they intend to disapprove anything Trump does. That is a recipe for failure as Trump brings success to the White House.

Trump has proven he will boost jobs in America and not bow to protocol when dealing with threatening world leaders. It’s obvious Democrats aren’t accustomed to such leadership, but they need to get on board or face fading into irrelevance.
