Feeling sympathy for anyone in the Trumpist orbit is hard, but does anyone else think Ben Carson threw his wife Candy under the bus over the purchase of the 31K dining room set for his office?
Trump promised to bring the best and brightest into his administration. Instead we have users, leakers, con artists, grifters like Don the Con himself — and guys like Ben Carson who know nothing, see nothing, about the abuse of taxpayer funds in furnishing his office. The nepotism part I get; Carson is merely following Trump’s example by having Carson son and wife doing work at HUD. But picking the dining room set and blaming the resulting kerfluffle on your wife? Small, Ben. Really small.
