On Sunday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said former neurosurgeon Ben Carson did not have the “intelligence” for his current position as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.
She’s angry because of comments by Dr. Carson in which he said Waters lacks basic manners after she had written President Donald Trump a letter demanding answers on reports that the administration was considering moving homeless people off the streets in California.
Why would that be such a bad thing? Wouldn’t having a roof over your head be better than living under a bridge or in a tent by a freeway somewhere?
Waters said, “I sent him a letter, and he sent me a letter claiming that I had no manners, 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. He doesn’t care about this issue.”
The Left likes to keep coming back around to the time when the government’s obsession with acronyms tripped up Dr. Carson during a question-and-answer session in which he misunderstood a reference to the acronym REO to be something about Oreo cookies.
They routinely overlook the fact that he is renowned for his skills as a brain surgeon, for goodness’ sake! He’s been a trailblazer in that field!
People like Maxine are the reason customer service people have nightmares about crabby people who have nothing but complaints.
They overlook all the good that a person may have accomplished and instead nitpick a pesky detail that resulted from a misunderstanding because of unfamiliarity with the new task at hand.
Of course, Maxine’s a real genius, right? She’s been screaming mindlessly for President Trump’s impeachment since before he took the oath of office.
Her district looks like a train wreck (and she doesn’t live anywhere NEAR there), yet she has openly advocated that other leftist-leaners like herself go after members of this administration and conservatives wherever they may be found.
I think the best thing that could happen is for someone to successfully defeat Mad Maxine in the next election and send her on her happy way to retirement!
