“Intelligent people tend to talk about the facts. They don’t sit around and call each other names. That’s what you can find on a third-grade playground.” –Ben Carson
Ben Carson, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, seemed to have everything working against him when he was growing up. In spite of having poverty as an excuse to fail, his mother demanded that he read and study. As most of us know, he became a world-renowned neurosurgeon. Eventually, he became well-known in Conservative circles and was selected to serve as a cabinet secretary by Donald Trump.
Of course, in the eyes of the Left, he has “betrayed the cause.” He’s a successful black man, religious, and has conservative values. He has no use for the political Left, either, so they despise him. He has been under a microscope since Trump selected him.
