"Well, we got all of our questions answered", Carson joked as he stepped out of the elevator.
Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, his wife and a handful of others became trapped in an elevator Wednesday during a tour of an affordable housing complex in suburban Miami. Of course, given this administration's knack for spinning a event into a justification to do the opposite of the right thing, the entire complex will probably be condemned for making our dear leader's underling look bad, but, um...
Waiting outside the elevator: former Miami Heat and National Basketball Association star Alonzo Mourning.
In Miami Wednesday to start a two-day whirlwind tour, Donald Trump's head housing honcho spent most of the day visiting public housing projects and rubbing elbows with South Florida's poor and politicians alike. "They're important in leveraging public and private resources for afforbale housing developments, like Courtside Apartments". Carson smiled as he emerged from the elevator, and Mourning apologized profusely.
But Carson took the situation in good spirits. Carson and his wife were eventually freed from the elevator by firefighters on the scene, creating quite a chaotic and freaky scene but hopefully gave the fledgling Cabinet member some food for thought. "Everyone was cool", said Rieger, who was eventually freed when firefighters and police officers forced open the elevator doors.
