Turn about is fair play. Mike Huckabee turned the tables on Nancy Pelosi as she poo-pooed Trump’s pick for HUD Secretary, Ben Carson. And as for Nancy Pelosi? Maybe she can dish it out but can’t take it when defending blacks for government positions? Double standard much?

As Pelosi criticized Carson, for what she determined as a lack of qualifications for the job, Huckabee questioned her remarks as racist. OUCH! It stings to have your own game turn on  you, doesn’t it, Nancy?

CNN reported the squabble.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee slammed House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi for her comments on the decision to tap Ben Carson as head of Housing and Urban Development, asking if she is “racist or just dumb?”

Huckabee, who became a Trump surrogate after he dropped out of the 2016 Republican primary, tweeted on Monday, “Ben Carson is first HUD Sec to have actually lived in gov’t housing. Fancy Nancy Pelosi says he’s not qualified; is she racist or just dumb?”

Conservatives all over the country are probably thinking that Huckabee is right on both counts.

However, the left is going to push back at every opportunity. This is what Pelosi’s office released today.

A spokesman for Pelosi told CNN on Monday that “name-calling” is “beneath” Huckabee.

“This nomination is universally viewed as bizarre and the nominee is clearly unqualified. Name calling like this is beneath the dignity of even Governor Huckabee,” Drew Hammill told CNN in an email.

He added: “No one seriously thinks Ben Carson is qualified to do this job.”

And Huckabee also issued a correction, via Twitter, today regarding his statement that Carson had lived in HUD Housing.

Even in correction mode, Huckabee gets a good shot in.
