On Tuesday, HUD Secretary Ben Carson had a contentious exchange with hard-left Congressman Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) during which she insulted him by telling him he was “unqualified” for his job and said he was “carrying the water of what I believe to be one of the most morally bankrupt presidents in our nation’s history.”

After the exchange, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) mocked Carson, tweeting, “Not sure he was fully awake, maybe he meant to reclaim his time back to sleep.” Carson turned around and wrecked the pro-abortion representative, tweeting, “Since you brought it up… I know what it’s like to actually be sleepy, especially after 18-hour surgeries and operating on babies in the womb. I hope @IlhanMN knows I care about all people, even those she doesn’t recognize as having a right to life.”

The exchange between Pressley and Carson started like this:

Pressley:

Secretary Carson, I’ve waited a long time for this moment, but the residents of my district, the 7th Congressional in Massachusetts, have been waiting far longer for your agency to do its job. Colleagues across the aisle earlier were critical of the passion and even outraged that we’ve expressed on this side of the aisle; I make no apologies for that. This matter is very, very personal. Let me be clear: Housing is a fundamental human right, and the displacement of families should be regarded as the public health crisis that it is. Mr. Secretary, your pioneering work in pediatric neurology is historic, and it is is something to be commended, and so it pains me that your gifted hands and mind are doing the bidding and carrying the water of what I believe to be one of the most morally bankrupt presidents in our nation’s history, increasing rifts, evicting families. You mentioned that the operating room was a safe haven away from all the troubles of the world. A safe haven. That’s exactly what a home should be, and what every single person, particularly our children, deserve.

Today you are not here as a doctor or even as our Surgeon-General which I think might be better suited for your talents, but as the official tasked with leading the agency overseeing our nation’s crumbling housing stock. And for that, I do believe you are unqualified … When you imply that people are living in public housing because of a desire to be self-sufficient, questioning a work ethic, when we are eliminating stock but not increasing supply, people in the Massachusetts 7th Congressional district would have to work 84 hours to afford a decent one-bedroom at fair market rent … Given your medical background, perhaps you could weigh in on the health consequences of failing to invest in safe housing. Mr. Secretary, since I am short on time here, yes or no: is stable and safe housing a social determinant of health?

Carson: Sounds like you have not been here and heard most of my testimony.

Pressley: Please just answer my question, reclaiming my time. yes or no. Is stable and safe housing a social determinant of health?

Carson: There is no question that housing is an important part—

Pressley: Yes or no?

Carson: There is no question that it’s a part of health.

Pressley continued, finally asking, “Yes or no: if left unaddressed, do you believe the substandard housing conditions pose a risk to tenants’ physical, mental and emotional health, if left unaddressed?”

Carson: Yes or no: can you ask me some questions yourself —

Pressley: You don’t get to dictate what my line of questioning is. Reclaiming my time. You’re a very smart man.

Carson: You can reclaim it all you want.

Pressley: You’re a very smart man. You understand the question, Please answer it. Yes or no: if left unaddressed … do you believe the substandard housing conditions pose a risk to tenants’ physical, mental and emotional health?”

Carson: You already know the answer to that.

Pressley: Yes or no.

Carson: You know the answer.

Pressley: Yes or no. I know the answer. Do you know the answer? Yes or no.

Carson: Reclaiming my time.

Pressley: You don’t get to do that.

Carson: Oh.

Omar then tweeted:

      Omar’s district must be muslim. No one else would vote for her. She/they don’t belong here if they want to start trouble. The deep state (Soros, Rockefeller’s, Rothschild’s) put obama in the White House. Remember those tarmac meetings. Paul Ryan, RINO,(Republican in Name Only), was in that plane. They convinced Hillary to secede the demoncrat nomination to him.
      There are really no political parties. They have us believe there are but their choice wins regardless of party. It’s been this way since President Lincoln. And, JFK knew. He was about to expose this information, hence, why he was assassinated. They want us to think we have power when in fact, we are powerless.

      Don’t kid yourself Don, these people are criminally smart. They appear stupid to conservatives because they have no common sense, but what they do have is an abundance of perverted, criminal, deceptive vocational non-sense. When you direct that much evil in one direction, you get democrats.

    These three or four witches/bitches in Congress are a total disgrace to this country; but if anyone had any doubt what total POS they all are, when they open their filthy mouths, they remove all doubt as to their sanity and integrity!! Vote these beeyatches OUT in 2020!!

      I am in total agreement. How can the people in their districts be so stupid as to vote for them in the first place.

    Disgraceful but true. Our Congress mainly on the Democratic side, is becoming a minefield of miles, that present themselves as americans but have only bad wishes for America and our way of life.
    I respect ALL religions ,but there is one that explicitly allows and encourages to be deceitful to obtain an objective, in this case,the weakening and ultimately ,the destruction of our society as we one it. About time we recognize this and start doing something about. VOTE ONLY FOR THE RIGHT PEOPLE WITHOUT ROOTS IN THAT REGION OF THE WORLD . YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN.

    ..and again the LibTards can go f themselves. It is amazing how hateful people can be and the best part is that don’t understand that we see it. Ben Carson is an upstanding guy that we’re lucky to have working for us can’t say the say about most Congress people.

    This tirade against any person Donald Trump appoints to a position is disgusting! It cracks me up, they will bamboozle a person with a question in hopes they can knock you down a few feet to make themselves look as if they are so smart! And to top it off, they stamper with repeated questions in hopes you won’t answer. To be exact they WON’T let you answer! They’ve got to get the last word and only word in because if they did let Mr Carson say anything rather than a yes or no…they would look like fools!! He’s to much of a gentleman and they are NOT ladies! I guess they need prayer too. But sometimes you want to gag their mouths!

    Her second mistake was claiming that housing is a fundemental human right. It’s not, one must be able to earn the right to housing by being able to paid for such housing. Know what her first mistake was? Thinking she knows more about this then others.

    I am so glad that people (Republicans being questioned by Congress) have figured out that you NEVER answer with a “Yes” or a “No”.. and you ALWAYS give a lengthy explanation while totally avoiding any question in a manner in which these demorats can later turn around on you and charge you with Lying to Congress… much like they have done or tried to do throughout the last year or more. its how you beat them at their own game… If you say yes or no, then they will wait until you say or do something that they can drag you back in-front of congress again and say, the last time you said (yes or no) and now suddenly you are doing (or saying) the opposite, you lied to us… ” because the democrats are just that sneaky and petty (also, its just fun to see them get all frustrated and pissy when you dont give them the answer they WANT you to give… )

    We shouldn’t have to put up with these implanted immigrants in Congress harassing Dr. Carson or anyone else. If they can’t act in a professional and civil manner than these scum need to go! They are rude, belligerent and think they are hot stuff. The fact is they are obnoxious, ignorant and need to go. They are DFC’s and generally just POS!

    After they have droned on for five minutes, then they DEMAND a ‘yes or no’ answer. If he says ANYTHING else, they interrupt, full of rage and indignation. We MUST demand ‘BETTER’ in 2020…. Republicans, GET OUT AND VOTE!!

    I’m so sick of these anti-American, anti-semitic, think they know- it -all women that were elected by people of the same ilk,talking down to their intellectual betters, trying to seem superior. They are despicable. I pray for Dr. Carson and all those in the Trump administration who are trying to make an actual difference and fix the broken system that’s been in place far too long, draining the AMERICAN taxpayer at every turn.

    This cockroach is being fed what to say against the US. Not smart enough to know about anything she talks about. The other day she referred to “contra ban”, but called it “cortra ban”. Clueless fool.
