Dr. Ben Carson is getting a deserved collective side-eye from folks over his comments regarding Harriet Tubman replacing Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill. And on top of that he’s getting a tongue lashing from a Rosa Parks relative.

Carson, the failed 2016 Republican presidential candidate went on FOX Business channel and not only big upped Jackson, the 7th president, but said he thought Tubman was more suited for the $2 bill.

“I love Harriet Tubman. I love what she did. But we can find another way to honor her,” Carson said. “Maybe a $2 bill.”

As we reported last year, Rosa Parks was also in the running to get a new spot on U.S. currency, and her niece, Sheila Keys, incensed with Carson’s comment about Tubman, told TMZ the retired neurosurgeon “needs surgery on his brain” and clearly puts zero historical value on Tubman’s contributions to America.

As for her aunt Rosa getting passed up, Keys says Parks “was not a diva and being on a dollar bill does not represent what she’s about.”
