Housing Secretary Ben Carson Says Poverty is a State of Mind

Housing Secretary Ben Carson Says Poverty is a State of Mind: In a recent SiriusXM interview, Trump Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson told reporter and close friend Armstrong Williams that “poverty — to a large extent, is a state of mind.”

All I can say is, if poverty is just a state of mind, then Carson’s mind is wallowing in some of the deepest poverty ever known. And to think I just assumed poverty was the state of your bank account. Silly me! Put another way, poverty is the state one’s mind enters when one has completely empty pockets. You can take that to the bank.

But its comments like this that make me think the only reason Dr Carson gets to head up the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is because of the influence of his older brother — Johnny Carson. Now, if only this whacked-out Trump administration would somehow turn out to be “just a state of mind.”
