DNC War Room calls neurosurgeon Ben Carson a ‘moron’

Members of the Democrat National Committee appear to believe that retired neurosurgeon and current Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson is a moron.

Why? Because while answering a slew of gotcha questions from the House Financial Services Committee this week, the award-winning member of the American Academy of Achievement, the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society and the Horatio Alger Association of Distinguished Americans mixed up the niche, barely used real estate term REO with Oreo sandwich cookies.

Thanks to this mix-up, Carson has faced nonstop mockery from Hollywood, from members of the left-wing media and from the DNC, which went so far this week  as to blast him as a “moron.”


As of Saturday morning, this tweet had over 2,000 comments but fewer than 300 likes.

That’s not a good look …

Check out the scathing responses to the tweet below:

As noted by the Twitter users above, Carson is no moron. Nor does his plan for homeless shelters have anything to do with discriminating against transgender people. It’s about protecting women and girls from men who pretend to be women (aka “transgender women”).

What the HUD secretary also isn’t is a punk. Speaking Friday on Fox Business Network’s “Cavuto: Coast to Coast,” he pushed back on the lies about his transgender policy and slammed Democrats for only being willing to attack and not being willing to listen and learn.

“I think we’ve reached a very sad point in our country where a hearing that is supposed to be about what the policies are becomes just attack, attack, attack. Not being very interested in what the answers are,” he said. “I hope we can move beyond that and really deal with the issues.”

Listen to the first part of his interview below, via “Cavuto: Coast to Coast.”

He also addressed the REO/Oreo mix-up.

“[I]t used to be a very common thing. We used to have over 65,000 properties about 10 years ago,” he said. “We are down to 6500. I can honestly say no one has ever used that term since I have been at HUD, but I know what they are, just from having grown up in Detroit.”

The HUD secretary did concede though that he could have been a bit better prepared for the hearing, but not in the sense that he should have studied more beforehand.

I probably should be a little more prepared in these hearings for just hostility and attacks,” he explained. “My general modus operandi is if I am nice and respectful to them, they will be nice and respectful to me. But that obviously doesn’t work in this setting.”

Nor in any setting involving Democrats

Listen to the second part of Carson’s interview below:


Despite the endless attacks, Carson remains committed to changing HUD for the better:

“I know that I’m going to be attacked a lot just because I’m in this administration and I’m with Trump, and I know people won’t look back over your life and the things that you’ve done, they just want to destroy but that’s okay. … I will always continue to try to do what is right for the people.”

“Jesus said the poor, you will always have with you and we will always have elderly and disabled people and we need to find the most efficient way to take care then for the ones who are work-able, we need to utilize the powers that we have to put them on the trajectory for success.”

Ever since President Donald Trump took over at the White House and assigned Carson to oversee HUD, the labor force participation rate has increased while unemployment has decreased. Both Trump and Carson have been awfully successful in their endeavors for alleged “morons” …
