Dr. Ben Carson, secretary of housing and urban development, said in an interview released Wednesday that poverty is a “state of mind” children learn from their parents, and that a “certain mindset” contributes to people living in poverty.
Most of the country seems to agree that Donald Trump is a bad president, but does that mean he will be removed from office or even impeached? No, it does not. If I may quote Margaret Mead, “Never doubt that a large group of terrible and incompetent men can be president; indeed, they’re the only ones who ever have.”
The woman who has fueled Islamophobia, railed against the mythical encroachment of Shariah law and gone on national TV to disparage a 14-year-old student for having the gall to build a clock while being Muslim, has been hired by the Trump administration and noted dick stabber Ben Carson to work in the Department of…
Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson was only on his third stop of a two-day Miami visit when he got trapped in the elevator, but I’d like to think that the elevator was actually in “the sunken place.”
This episode is filled with people we hate, HBCU presidents, Ben Carson, embarrassing fat moments that Ms. Patti Patti and I bond over, and Donald Trump’s usual foolishness. But first, an apology.
Former neurosurgeon Ben Carson proved Monday that he knows absolutely nothing about slavery. Then Samuel L. Jackson proved that he has no problem calling the head of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development a dickhead.
Someone, please go get Uncle Ben; he’s out here making an ass of himself again.
On Thursday, shortly after Ben Carson was confirmed as secretary of housing and urban development, White House press secretary Sean “Spicy Facts” Spicer tweeted out this:
I’m really reaching my threshold with this president. On Tuesday he visited the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture and made a tone-deaf, rambling speech. While we’ve become used to his stream of consciousness attempts at public speaking, Trump’s ability to just flat out act as if…
In a so-called listening session last week to kick off Black History Month, some African Americans surrounded President Donald Trump at the White House, including former Apprentice contestant Omarosa Manigault and GOP political commentator Paris Dennard.
President Donald Trump was surrounded by all his blacks on Wednesday. That’s right; Omarosa Manigault and Ben Carson were there to hear Trump shout out Frederick Douglass like he was a new artist coming out on Trump Records, during what I believe was supposed to constitute some form of Black History Month appreciation.
TV Host Steve Harvey met with President-elect Donald Trump for a meeting at Trump Tower in New York City on Friday and took to Twitter to explain why.
Updated Thursday, Jan. 12, 2017, 12:48 p.m. EST: Ben Carson sat before a Senate committee Thursday morning to make the case that he should be confirmed to lead the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

On Tuesday, Donald Trump tweeted that he's strongly considering former Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson for a Cabinet position.
There are many reasons not to serve in the Donald Trump administration. For starters, by the simple virtue of Tangerine Mussolini's being grossly unqualified for the presidency, who could blame anyone for not wanting to serve under what will likely prove to be a disastrous commander in chief? However, when it comes to…
African Americans seem to be the belle of the ball this election season, and so Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump made his call to a mostly black Detroit congregation Saturday.
The political campaign season has a funny way of giving everyone long-term memory loss. Your friends at work can remember the latest Hillary Clinton gaffe or Donald Trump stumble that happened 48 hours (or, in Trump’s case, five minutes) ago because it circulates on Twitter and Facebook. But when it comes to some…
On Tuesday, Donald Trump—once known for his famous catchphrase “You’re fired!”—has officially been crowned the Republican nominee for the 2016 presidential race. Considering the “Make America great again” rhetoric that emanated across this country, this came as no surprise (despite the most clear discord since the…
