House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) slammed Dr. Ben Carson’s nomination for HUD Secretary as a “disturbingly unqualified choice.”Pelosi said: “Dr. Ben Carson is a disconcerting and disturbingly unqualified choice to lead a department as complex and consequential” as Housing and Urban Development.”
“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.
“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.”
Um, not because you grew up in an urban area are you qualified to run a federal agency.
Just last month, Dr. Carson’s business manager Armstrong Williams said on his behalf, that he didn’t believe he was qualified enough to run a government agency.
Of course, the reaction on Twitter is complete mockery, as it should be:
Trump picked Ben Carson as HUD Secretary. In related news, U.S. hospitals admitted dozens for head injuries due to extreme facepalming.

Ben Carson is in no way imaginable qualified to be HUD secretary—or for that matter, ANY high gov't office. Does Trump think this is a game?

#Trump: Not qualified? No problem! Dr. Ben Carson, you've done brain surgery and you lived in a city before, so you're now Secretary Of HUD!

Nominating Ben Carson to lead HUD is like nominating a secretary of Education who doesn't like public schools.

I don't wanna say #Trump picked Ben Carson to head #HUD because he's black. But Trump picked Ben Carson to lead #HUD because he's black.

Republicans spent 8 years saying Pres Obama wasnt qualified, 18 months saying Hillary Clinton wasnt qualified but defending Ben Carson?
