Didn't he have to return the table?
 
2020-10-21 9:05:46 PM  
Did he fall asleep on it?

Ben Carson will soon be an experienced expert on being homeless.

No problem, Ben, we (The Republicans) who've just lost every election nationwide are now officially the KKK and we no longer need your token ass, so GTFO.

Besides making obscene purchases for his office, has Ben done anything the past 4 years?

Trump ordered a pizza from Domino's in his memory.
 
2020-10-22 12:22:44 AM  
Wait, there was a response beyond sneering and scoffing?
 
2020-10-22 12:25:30 AM  
I think he's been in the cabinet longer than anyone. Still not in jail, probably because he hasn't done anything.

Black guys hafta know HUD, right?

You guys mock him but Carson has proven what it takes to survive in this Administration, which is to not do such a good job that Trump notices nor do such a bad job that Trump notices.

Basically: Don't get noticed by Trump.

I thought he died from COVID.

Did a bunch of rent voucher slashing. Raised rents in HUD housing. There's been other things I'm forgetting in the constant barrage of bullshiat over the last 4 years I'm forgetting but I'm sure none of it has been good.

How much was spent on this table?

The Dog Ate My Homework: I thought he died from COVID.


That was his other token.  This one has managed to snooze in a corner and stay out of the news cycle completely.  Given the fact that he doesn't have covid, I doubt he even goes to work.

He completely monopolized the HUD foreclosure process.  Each region had at least 3 competing companies selling foreclosed homes just 4 years ago. In my region it was Dart, Pence, and miller. Now there's one unaccountable company, (chronos solutions) that when you call you get an answering service and sent to a voicemail.  Maybe you hear back, maybe not.

They still only pay $350 per appraisal when the market is closer to $500 and it takes between 30 and 45 days to get paid after you complete the report.

I hear the VA version of this is worse more like 45-60 days after you submit your report. And it's more work for less money. Extra forms and what not.

no, that was Herman Cain

dunno why I keep trying to read Sleepy Ben as Pizza Herman, but that's cat brains I guess.

WHAT federal response to homelessness? The one where Trump scream tweets "DEMORCAT RUN CITY'S" (sic)?

Approved of a bunch of anti-poor, exceptionally racist stuff, but has been low on the radar with everyone else in the cabinet doing more public things, and journalists not really connecting with the struggles of poor people.
 
2020-10-22 12:52:24 AM  
Ben Carson hates the idea of public housing looking like a safe living place for poor people and prefers Dickensian "poor houses" to replace them.

He deflects criticism off his belt buckle.

Federal response to homeless: check that lady for Adam's apple and toss her ass on the street.
 
2020-10-22 2:01:26 AM  
Good to know that ben carson continues to provide nothing of value.

He is certainly a huge step above all other trump helpers.
 
2020-10-22 2:22:35 AM  
Remember that time a surgeon was put in charge of Housing and Urban Development? That was wild.
 
2020-10-22 2:39:20 AM  
Did he mention Oreos again?

Other than sleeping and looking for his luggage?
 
2020-10-22 3:23:46 AM  
I'm assuming the roundtable is for the goal of increasing homelessness based on his record at HUD.

He's basically Darth Vectivus.

I honestly forgot Carson was still around.

It will be a short meeting. Carson's federal response to homelessness: "Be more bootstrappy."
 
2020-10-22 8:11:47 AM  
maybe he can team up with london breed and create and ouroboros of doing absolutely nothing about homelessness
 
2020-10-22 8:20:27 AM  
In before someone mistakes him for Herman Ca-

Well, I came for this anyway.

They want to use the cages reserved for immigrants since that seems to have dropped.

Apparently he did, too.  This round table is like his first official act that I'm aware of...

Ryan Zinke resigned, allegedly in lieu of being formally investigated.

Him and Rick Perry. Yeah, that's the level of competence it takes to stick around in this administration. Not good enough to get attention, but not bad enough to get caught.
