Secretary Ben Carson Totally Destroys Rep. Ilhan Omar With Devastating Tweet

Rep. Ilhan Omar scrapped with the wrong person on Wednesday.

Omar ripped Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Ben Carson after his appearance before the House Financial Services Committee.

“Not sure he was fully awake, maybe he meant to reclaim his time back to sleep,” Omar wrote on Twitter.

Omar was mocking Carson after a fiery exchange with Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA). At one point, Carson cut off Pressley by saying, “Reclaiming my time.” Pressley said: “You don’t get to do that.” Carson said, “Oh.”

“The time belongs to the gentle lady,” Rep. Maxine Waters said.

After Omar mocked Carson, he fired back. Carson, a world renowned doctor and former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Children’s Center, noted that in his line of work, he had gone through some marathon surgery sessions, including one in which he became the only doctor to successfully separate conjoined twins joined at the back of the head.

“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,” he wrote on Twitter.
