New Emails Show Ben Carson & His Wife 'Picked Out' A $31K Dining Set For The Housing & Development Department Dining Room!

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TruePolitik

no title

Ben Carson says he had little or no involvement in purchasing a $31K furniture set for his Department of Housing and Urban Development dining room.

But according to unearthed emails, the Housing Secretary and his wife hand-"picked" the expensive furniture themselves!

According to an exhaustive report by CNN, an August email from a career administration staffer, with the subject line "Secretary's dining room set needed," to Carson's assistant refers to "printouts of the furniture the Secretary and Mrs. Carson picked out." For shame!

The internal emails were published following a Freedom of Information Act request by liberal watchdog group American Oversight.

A HUD spokesman previously denied the Carsons had any involvement in the dining set selection, telling CNN that, like everything else going on in the administration, the Carsons had "no awareness" that the set was being purchased.

The spokesman initially blamed the expensive order on "the career staffers in charge of the building." Carson personally addressed the issue days later, telling the outlet he was "surprised" by the hefty price tag and was having the order canceled.

Filed under: Film FlickersOscarsFunny

Get Out has become one of the most popular, powerful movies of 2017 — and it has the Oscar nominations to prove it!

So, there's no better time than now for the racially charged horror satire to get ripped apart by it's very own Honest Trailer.

Fortunately — or unfortunately? — the cynics at Screen Junkies didn't have much to roast Jordan Peele's masterpiece about. Except for the part where Rose eats her Fruit Loops separate from the milk. White people don't really do that… do they!?

Watch the funny faux-trailer (above) to see which characters were credited as The White Wing, The Lost Kardashian, and Ben Carson.

Twitter Reacts To Ben Carson Getting Hilariously Stuck In An Elevator!

Filed under: PolitikTwitterHIGHlariousRescue

Ben Carson stuck in an elevator.

Ben Carson is not having a good Hump Day!

The Housing and Urban Development Secretary started out his Wednesday stuck in an elevator, and had to wait 20 minutes before firefighters rescued him.

We're sure he was a bit shooketh.

The incident occurred while Ben was visiting an affordable housing complex in Overton, a neighborhood in Miami, with former Miami Heat star Alonzo Mourning. Alonzo was there to discuss low-income housing with the Secretary, and had to wait around for poor Ben to be rescued. Awkward!

The best part, though, has been all the Twitter reactions, which are, as always, gold.

Check some out (below)!

Ben Carson Refers To Slaves As Hard-Working 'Immigrants' — See Samuel L. Jackson & The Rest Of The Internet's Appropriate Reactions!

no title

Stay woke, Ben Carson.

No, really, stop sleepwalking through your lectures and actually listen to the words coming out of your mouth!

On Monday, the new Secretary of Housing and Urban Development gave a speech to his departmental employees and went on a bizarre tangent about the days where immigrants had a "can-do" attitude.

What hard working immigrants is he speaking of exactly? Slaves, duh!

The retired neurosurgeon mumbled his way through the speech, referring to slaves as immigrants who had a MUCH better work ethic than the immigrants of today! He gargled:

"That's what America is about. A land of dreams and opportunity. There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, worked even longer, even harder for less."

Yeah, the slaves were pretty damn motivated. We would be too if taking a break meant getting 40 lashes on the back. (Something Steve Bannon has probably already tried to add to the revised travel ban.)

Donald Trump's sleepy puppet went on to say that the slaves had dreams that their children and grandchildren could have the opportunity to "pursue prosperity."

Needless to say, Twitter reacted pretty strongly — with Samuel L. Jackson, the NAACP, and plenty more condemning Carson's idiotic remarks.

Ch-ch-check out the clip to hear the ridiculous words for yourself — and see some sharp responses (below)!

Donald Trump Can't Help But Make His Black History Month Celebration All About Himself — Watch!

Filed under: PolitikDonald TrumpGIFsControversySocial Issues

no title

Did you guys know that Black History Month is actually about Donald Trump???

Our newly-elected POTUS hosted a "little breakfast" to "honor" the history of African-Americans, and he of course took this as an opportunity to praise himself (a wealthy, upper class, white businessman who pulled himself up from the bootstraps of a million dollar loan) and blast CNN.

Because that seems appropriate to what Dr. King would have wanted.

Steve Harvey Is The Latest Celebrity To Meet With Donald Trump At His Golden Towers!

Filed under: PolitikDonald TrumpBestiezSteve Harvey

Survey says: This is ridiculous…

If you're still holding out hope that Donald Trump won't be a complete failure as the President of the United States, we're sorry to say his most recent meeting isn't doing him any favors.

That's because just weeks after getting advice from Kanye West and Anna Wintour at Trump Towers… the former Celebrity Apprentice host just had a meeting with Steve Harvey about housing issues on Friday.

What could a game show host who's most famous for failing to read a note card correctly possibly have to say about housing? Probably just as much as our new Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Dr. Ben Carson — zero.

But in Donald's defense, the Family Feud host is also a known sexist and racist, so they probably had plenty to talk about outside of politics!

With that said, Steve took to Twitter after the sit-down to explain his side of the story. And according to him, President Barack Obama actually put him up to it, tweeting:

Donald Trump Officially Names Ben Carson To His Cabinet — After Mercilessly Mocking Him! Take A Look Back At The Worst Insults!

no title

Another day, another Republican selling their dignity!

On Monday, Donald Trump took to his second home of Twitter to announce Ben Carson will serve as the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development in his presidential cabinet.

While the nomination is interesting when you consider Carson has ZERO experience in the area, it's especially curious considering Mr. Trump BLASTED the former surgeon on social media for the past year. We guess power is more important to Ben than his own self-worth…

Video: Whoopi Goldberg SLAMS Ben For Supporting Donald!

For those who already blocked the past election season out (or lost track of all Drumpf's many feuds), Donald and Ben were once embroiled in a contentious battle for the republican nomination for president. Similarly to Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, the failed businessman did NOT hold back where it concerned the 65-year-old's personal character and career.

Given today's nomination, we thought it would be fun to look back at Drumpf's worst burns against his new cabinet member…
