When President-Elect Donald Trump announced he would appoint Dr. Ben Carson as HUD Secretary, you would have thought he said he was starting a war with China the way liberals reacted.
Here was the official news from CNN on Carson’s appointment:
Ben Carson will be nominated as the next secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Trump transition team announced Monday.
“I am thrilled to nominate Dr. Ben Carson as our next Secretary of the US Department of Housing and Urban Development,” President-elect Donald Trump said in a statement. “Ben Carson has a brilliant mind and is passionate about strengthening communities and families within those communities.”
Nancy Pelosi, the House Minority Leader immediately claimed Carson wasn’t qualified.
“House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi is calling the decision to tap Ben Carson as head of Housing and Urban Development a ‘disconcerting and disturbingly unqualified choice.’ Pelosi says the country deserves someone with ‘relevant experience’ to protect the rights of homeowners and renters. In her statement released Monday, she says ‘there is no evidence that Dr. Carson brings the necessary credentials to hold a position with such immense responsibilities and impact on families and communities across America.”
That prompted former Gov. Mike Huckabee to hit back with this:
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?

Could you imagine if Republicans were this upset about a Democratic president picking an African-American man to head up HUD?
It’s time for Nancy Pelosi to apologize!
