Dr. Ben Carson is by all accounts and appearances a good man which may have placed him at a disadvantage when dealing with the bottom dwelling Democrats. With the departure of Harry Reid and aside from Chuck Schumer, no bottom feeding Democrat in the Senate is more vicious than Elizabeth Warren.
Carson should have known from the disgusting displays of Congressman John Lewis and Senator Corey Booker that they’ll say anything about anyone if it has the potential to help them politically. There’s not a finer man in the Senate and yet both of them were brutal and proclaimed unfairly and completely without substantiation or merit that the Attorney General nominee was a racist.
Dr. Carson laughs with Warren, but he’s only kidding himself. She’s using him, as he will soon learn, to get at President-elect Trump. She implies that billions of dollars in grants and loans under the oversight of Carson as HUD Secretary might somehow find their way into the pockets of a Trump. There’s absolutely no reason to believe that it would happen, but Warren doesn’t have to make sense or ask merit-based questions, she can use her time in an attempt to discredit Trump and Carson if it works out that way, a higher calling to her than the mere confirmation or opposition to a Cabinet nominee.
After an exercise in the theatrics and insincere niceties was completed, the real Warren, though not nearly as vicious as she was when campaigning for future convict Hillary Clinton, asked, “Can you assure me that not a single taxpayer dollar that you give out will financially benefit the President-elect or his family. She wasn’t concerned with the sale of American uranium benefitting Secretary of State Clinton or her family to the tune of tens of millions of dollars or the sale of access by Clinton for speeches for her husband. She’s worried that an Inspector General wouldn’t notice millions of dollars going to an entity with a Trump somewhere in the management or in some way benefitting.
After Dr. Carson does his best to appease the idiocy of the Massachusetts Senator without getting offended at her insinuation, both that he’s too incompetent or corrupt, the crooked Democrat exposes her true intentions all along were to criticize Mr. Trump for not being as transparent as she believes he should be.
She says, “The problem is that you can’t assure us that HUD monies, not of the ten dollar varieties but of the multi-million dollar varieties will not end up in the President-elect’s pockets. And the reason you can’t assure us of that is because the President-elect is hiding his family’s business interests from you, from me, from the rest of America.” Pilfering public funds is what Democrats do, Warren, did you forget where you are? You’re not imagining yourself on the reservation again, are you?
Her point in ushering Dr. Carson through that whole ridiculous line of questioning was to work her way around to a position where she could declare that Trump is hiding his business dealings and is a threat to abuse his office. It’s hypocrisy on a grand scale, typical for a Democrat who places the advancement of their political party ahead of the good of the nation and its citizens.
Dr. Carson will experience a lot in these hearings and in his future time in the swamp. Democrats are the lowest life form there is, and DC is littered with them. He’s lucky he’s a black man, otherwise she would have accused him of being a racist as well.
