Things got very testy between Housing and Urban Development Secretary Dr. Ben Carson and House Democrats. Carson received some ridicule in the media for mistaking a housing term for an Oreo cookie. Cortney has more :
Chairwoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) set the tone by accusing Carson of leading an agency that is "actively causing harm," sentiments that were shared by other Democrats on the panel.
"It pains me that your gifted hands are doing the bidding and carrying the water of what I believe to be one of the most morally bankrupt president's history," Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-IL) told the witness. "Increasing rents, evicting families."
Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) called the policy "despicable" and wondered how members of HUD could live with themselves knowing they were displacing thousands of families and leaving 55,000 children on the street.
Carson defended the policy by pointing out how it comes with a six-month deferral period, which can be renewed twice.
Carson, who has been known to act a bit off in his public appearances, took the attacks hurled at him from Democrats, defended the policies of the Trump administration, and also showed that hes just as vicious in delivering those blows. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) decided to take a shot at him, tweeting, Not sure he was fully awake, maybe he meant to reclaim his time back to sleep.
Carson was not going to let this go unanswered.
Since you brought it up, he replied in a tweet of his own. I know what it's like to actually be sleepy, especially after 18-hour surgeries and operating on babies in the womb. I hope Rep. Ilhan Omar knows I care about all people, even those she doesn't recognize as having a right to life.
Talk about being taken to the woodshed. Omar is not alone. Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) torched Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) after the latter said, In 2018, right-wing extremists were behind almost ALL US domestic terrorist killings. Why dont you go do something about that? Crenshaw is a war hero, losing an eye when an IED exploded while serving as a U.S. Navy SEAL in Afghanistan back in 2012. AOC was defending Omar who was being rightfully bashed for downplaying the 9/11 attacks as an event where some people did something.
Good for Dr. Ben Carson and Dan Crenshaw.
Does Omar the muzzie even care?
Omar is not fit to lick Carsons boots. She is a maggot.
Amen to that.
One doesn’t argue with an idiot to convince the idiot, but the audience.
Of course not..Omar would have blown herself up on a city bus a long time ago if she were not in Congress..she is a Jihadist just like Tlaib the Hamas lover(And funded)
18 hours. Holy crap, can’t even imagine
She is target practice to me.....

I wish they would ask how Democrats live with themselves knowing they have been forcing (insert number here) AMERICANS to live in their cars or the streets while the housing assistance goes to non-Americans!
The House jihadi has the brains of a cayayaan cayayaan ah.
Or something “north”of his boots!
Dr. Carson continues to acquit himself well, and with compassion, in his public appearances on behalf of the Department he heads up.
The grousing from Omar and others is nothing more than flak.
And, we know all about flak, and being over the target...
Matt Vespa seems a bit of a creep.
“In 2018, right-wing extremists were behind almost ALL US domestic terrorist killings.”
Can’t think of a single one. Did I miss something?
Omar is a gross embarrassment to America, should be repatriated ASAP!
what a farce we have going on in the House nowadays, my Lord its a Lunatic Asylum.....
and doing tremendous damage to our country, too
I don’t think you missed a thing, I believe every incident I read about was by leftists.
Agreed, there’s a passel of Rat nutjobs in Washington.
