Ben Carson for head of HUD

Post by nafod » Tue Dec 06, 2016 1:27 pm

From Carson's spokesperson, before the announcement...
“Dr. Carson feels he has no government experience,” Armstrong Williams said, “he’s never run a federal agency. The last thing he would want to do was take a position that could cripple the presidency.”

I figure he's being brought in to make Donald look good.

HUD's been crippled for decades and, to my knowledge, has never made any POTUS look good.

He doesn't exactly have binders full of black friends.
One of the downsides of the Internet is that it allows like-minded people to form communities, and sometimes those communities are stupid.

How hard can HUD be? It isn't exactly Brain Surgery.

Pyramids for the poor!

Or would that fall under the authority of the Dept. of Agriculture?

In Carson's defense, he was mentioned more times on "The Wire" than every previous HUD Secretary put together.
