Looking at the vast majority of President Trump’s cabinet, you have to wonder: What in the world are some of these people doing there? Then again, when you consider that the exact same thing can be said of the incompetent fool in the Oval Office, it does kinda make sense.
One of the strangest appointments Trump made after the election was selecting Ben Carson to serve as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). There’s no doubt that Carson is a brilliant pediatric neurosurgeon, but HUD Secretary?
After Carson took control of the agency, he gave a speech in which he declared:
“That’s what America is about. A land of dreams and opportunity. There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, worked even longer, even harder for less.”
Carson has also referred to poverty as “a state of mind.”
Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) has had just about enough of Carson’s bullshit, and had this to say about him at the Essence Festival in New Orleans:
“[Carson] knows nothing about the mission of HUD. He doesn’t care about people in public housing. He believes that if you are poor, it is your own fault. And he doesn’t know the difference between an immigrant and a slave.”
And if Carson thinks he’s going to have an easy time of when he testifies before House Committee on Financial Services, on which Waters is the ranking member, she made it clear what she has planned for the good doctor:
“[If he] thinks that I am going to give him a pass, I am going to take his ass apart.”
We need more Democrats like Maxine Waters. She doesn’t take any shit or pull any punches, and that’s what it takes when you go up against these GOP assholes.
