Congresswoman Maxine Waters took a jab at HUD Secretary Ben Carson while appearing on MSNBC’s AM With Joy on Sunday.
Waters suggested Dr. Carson lacked the “intelligence” to be HUD Secretary in response to his plan to gut the Fair Housing Act.
Waters said, “I sent him a letter, and he sent me a letter claiming that I had no manner, etc. I basically said to my staff, I really don’t have time to be bonded by somebody who does not know the difference between REO and OEO.”
“This guy just doesn’t have the background, the capability, the intelligence to do the job. He does not know what he’s doing,” she declared. “He doesn’t care about this issue.”
Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee fired back upon learning of Maxine’s remarks.
“Maxine Waters said Ben Carson ‘lacks the intelligence’ to be HUD Secretary,” Huckabee said in a tweet. “Maxine, it ain’t brain surgery! That’s what Carson did, at world class level, before being HUD Secretary.”
“Imagine if Maxine Waters performed brain surgery on someone!” he ended. See Below
