Accuracy in Media

Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson fired back at freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) after she publicly criticized him after he testified in a hearing on Tuesday.

Omar tried to bash Carson during his testimonial before the House Financial Services Committee.

She said, “Not sure he was fully awake, maybe he meant to reclaim his time back to sleep.”

Omar was hinting at Carson’s request to reclaim time during a heated battle with Democrat Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass).

Carson fired back on Twitter.

The freshman progressive has been facing the heat with numerous controversial statements. On Tuesday, while being interviewed on the Nation, she bashed on Republican supporters by saying America has a major problem with ignorance, and that problem is “pervasive.”
