Ben Carson’s future

I think that Trump is very grateful to Carson for endorsing him, but I think that if Carson is given any sort of high-level position in government, it’s only a matter of time before Carson says something very weird that’s going to embarrass the Trump administration. Trump seems pretty smart about these things, so I predict that Carson is not going to be appointed to anything.

In a similar vein, notice how Trump accepted Palin’s support in Iowa, then distanced himself from her as far as possible.

  1. Carson could absolutely be the Surgeon General. After the swearing in, Trump would never see him again.

  2. There is a Harmless Idiot posting out there for him somewhere. As Surgeon General — the next Joycelyn Elders! Or perhaps Ambassador to somewhere in subSaharan Africa.

  3. Could Carson be as embarrassing as Elders? Good question, but you know that the media will have it out for him, while they’d be cheer-leading Elders today.

  4. Trump should designate him Surgeon General, and then eliminate the position of Surgeon General because what the hell. Why do we need this stupid role? Right now it’s held by a dot-head. Ugh.

    • Here are the last eight surgeon generals, spanning more than 20 years:

      Audrey F. Manley
      David Satcher
      Kenneth P. Moritsugu
      Richard Carmona
      Steven K. Galson
      Donald L. Weaver
      Regina Benjamin
      Boris D. Lushniak
      Vivek H. Murthy

      I never heard of a single one.

      • There is nothing special about the number 8. You chose it because if you chose 9 it would disprove your thesis.

  5. Installing Ben Carson wherever he wants, giving him whatever he wants is fine by me after he linked Hillary Clinton to Lucifer on the big stage.

    Surgeon General is fine by me.

  6. ” it’s only a matter of time before Carson says something very weird that’s going to embarrass the Trump administration. Trump seems pretty smart about these things….”

    Yeah, what if Carson came out in favor of NATO or something like that?

  7. Sheriff David Clarke, a black guy, is more popular and more well known among conservatives than Ben Carson. I could see him getting some sort of homeland security post maybe.

  8. I get why Trump and Trump supporters don’t really want Carson in the cabinet. I don’t either but he’s good to have involved in some non-official capacity because he is genuinely beloved by a lot of Americans, as was clear by his loud and long ovation as he arrived at the podium to make his speech the other night.

    But I’m not sure what the confusion is all about with his Lucifer comments. Hillary has been a leader of the radical left for 40 years, she studied and used the tactics of Saul Alinsky as laid out in his book Rules for Radicals, the ulimate manual for community organizing (ie. Communist agitating). Alinsky is a very bad man. Alinsky dedicated his — and Hillary’s, and Obama’s — playbook to the original, ultimate baddy Lucifer. Christians believe in Satan and know that Satan is bad. Therefore Hillary is very, very bad too. Simples.

  9. Lion, the most basic rule in life is that you reward your people and show appreciations for the ones that stood by you. Carson will get something appropriate for his level as he rightfully should. Carlson is a good guy in his own way. Trump is a mensh and will not be ungrateful.

  10. Appoint Carson climate czar and him have shut down the entire edifice. Then make him get to work bulldozing the idiotic food pyramid. Enough Americans have been murdered by gross negligence of their own government and their allegiance to the corn and margarine lobbies.

  11. Ben Carson has a future as a cable TV pitchman for fake remedies that don’t require FDA approval. Or as a pitchman for his little friend Jesus–televangelism pays better.
