Ben Carson - Just Another in Trump's Swamp


Trump appointed Dr. Ben Carson, a 2016 Republican candidate for U.S. President, to fill the role of HUD Secretary. When asked by Rep Katie Porter (D-CA) to explain the disparities in REO rates. The Secretary was clearly clueless.

2020 - The swamp really does need to be drained.

No, just another stunning display of ignorance and incompetence from the head of a major government department of the Trump administration.

So you're OK with the person heading Housing and Urban Development being totally clueless on anything actually related to housing and urban development?

Thought so...

He was never going to drain the swamp. That was just a phrase he used for his base to rally behind.

Trumpís picks of incompetent secretaries for HUD, Education, EPA, and Treasury reaffirm this notion.

Looks like someone is triggered.

Why would anyone expect people to know acronyms for phrases not related to their jobs?

I never heard of the term either, except for the Speedwagon version. Is it known that HUD uses this term?

Real estate owned or REO is a term used in the United States to describe a class of property owned by a lender—typically a bank, government agency, or government loan insurer—after an unsuccessful sale at a foreclosure auction.

.... but you lay out the red carpet for a President-elect that had no clue how many States there are.

I wonder if he ever found them?

Itís a commonly known term for folks in the industry, like real estate agents or maybe a Presidential Appointed position such as the leader of Housing and Urban Development.

But Iíd assume maga would also be okay with Mnuchin not knowing what GDP means.

The cabinet position is not dealing with short sales or selling real estate.

The reality is Ben has done a great job.
