Trump officials announced on Monday morning that renowned Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon and former presidential candidate Ben Carson would be named the next Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.
Predictably, the mainstream media underwent a series of violent conniptions at the thought of a man with no “urban housing experience” being put in charge of an 8,000 employee agency. How could the man who became the first pediatric neurosurgeon to successfully separate cranially-conjoined twins and the former director of the pediatric neurosurgery department at the top hospital in the world for 30 years possibly figure out how to run HUD?
The former Arkansas Governor had a very interesting take on the news.
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?
