Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee utterly annihilated House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi for outrageous remarks she made Monday about retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson.
After President-elect Donald Trump announced that he had chosen Carson to head the Department of Housing and Urban Development, Pelosi released a statementslamming the retired neurosurgeon for lacking experience.
“Our country deserves a HUD Secretary with the relevant experience to protect the rights of homeowners and renters, particularly in low income and minority communities, and to ensure that everyone in our country can have access to safe and affordable housing without facing discrimination or homelessness,” she wrote.
Really? A black gentleman who pulled himself up from the ghetto by his own bootstraps lacks the experience to deal with housing discrimination? Mike Huckabee certainly did not agree with her.
“Ben Carson is first HUD Sec to have actually lived in gov’t housing,” he noted on Twitter. “Fancy Nancy Pelosi says he’s not qualified; is she racist or just dumb?”
My guess would be both …
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?

Speaking later that evening on “The Kelly File,” Huckabee provided yet another takedown of Pelosi — this one even more brutal than the last.
“For eight years, every time someone commented on something Barack Obama did, and disagreed with him on a policy question, they were called a racist,” he pointed out. “We’ve all be called racists because we raised questions about Obama’s judgment, about his policies.”
“Why wouldn’t that same standard be applied when people like Nancy Pelosi, or Chuck Schumer or CAIR go and attack Ben Carson?” he then asked.
Listen to his full statement below:
Huckabee also highlighted the fact that unlike Pelosi, who has spent nearly her entire miserable life in politics, Carson spent decades performing complex surgery, the premise being that he possessed more than enough qualifications to serve in government.
Hint: Government work is NOT rocket science, folks.
Well, unless you happen to be a dimwit like Pelosi, in which case it can be awfully complicated, :’-(.
