Huckabee Sanders Accused Of Violation Of Hatch Act, She’s Not The First In Trumpworld

People in government are, generally, well aware of all the rules of government, and abide by them. However, since we now have a crew of amateurs at the helm in the White House, it’s not surprising that not only does gaffe after gaffe occur in the West Wing, but actual violations of law do as […]

Ben Carson Just Turned Politics Into A Limbo Dance and It Can’t Get Any...

C-Span didn’t used to be confused with Comedy Central, but if Ben Carson keeps appearing, that will all change overnight. Carson made an appearance Tuesday before the House Oversight Committee, where Democratic Rep. Katie Porter (CA-45) literally had to explain terms and concepts to him that are a basic part of his job as HUD Secretary — but you wouldn’t know that to listen to his replies. “I would also like to ask you to get back to me, if you don’t mind, to explain the disparity in REO rates. Do you know what an REO is?” asked the congresswoman. “An Oreo…” replied Carson. “R, no not an Oreo. An R-E-O.” shot back Porter. “Real estate?” asked Carson. “What’s the O stand for?” said Porter. “E-organization?” asked Carson. Third grade level guessing games from a Cabinet secretary. I would be falling on the floor, if I wasn’t so pi**ed off. Now, listen to this short clip. Congresswoman Porter is to be commended for her decency and composure. If it was me, I would have blasted this moran into the next time zone, with my foot in his a$$. I asked @SecretaryCarson about REOs – a basic term related to foreclosure – at a hearing today. He thought I was referring to a chocolate sandwich cookie. No, really. pic.twitter.com/cYekJAkRag — Rep. Katie Porter (@RepKatiePorter) May 21, 2019 Now, you wouldn’t think that it could get worse. But you would be wrong. Carson treated all this as a joke. Here’s what he sent to Porter. OH, REO! Thanks, @RepKatiePorter. Enjoying a few post-hearing snacks. Sending some your way! pic.twitter.com/q4MMTBWVUI — Ben Carson (@SecretaryCarson) May 21, 2019 Ben Carson’s Oreo gaffe. Betsy DeVos and her imaginary grizzly bear. Rick Perry not knowing the name of the department he oversees. It’s time to cancel Who’s the Dumbest Cabinet Member? After 2.5 seasons it’s gone on for far too long. — Adam Best (@adamcbest) May 21, 2019 Of course, this is funny on a whole different level. Ben Carson doesn’t know what an Oreo is? Look in the mirror, Ben. Or, ask one of the pictures of Jesus over the mantle piece, preferably the one with you and he in your bathrobes, in a selfie. That’s primo. Or, go ask one of those educational institutions who gave you your fifty-five honorary degrees. Maybe one of them knows. Maxine Waters said about Carson, “He’s what my grandmother called ‘an educated fool.'” To say the least, to say the very least. I never thought I would live to see the day when politics is a limbo dance, where we wait to see which Trump appointee can go even lower still. But that’s exactly what it is. Yep, this is what winning looks like, in the Age of Trump. Here is a longer clip, 3:26, which underscores how utterly clueless Carson is on the fundamentals of housing. He should be impeached and replaced. This level of incompetence is totally unacceptable. The good news is that Porter will replace your faith in government, even as Carson shatters it. Another star of the freshman class.
