Default Ben Carson lies about E. St. Louis Housing Projects

Another Rump "black leader" in the news again...

Apparently, Uncle Ben Carson is determined to make a giant ass out of himself each time he makes headlines, and nobody can say he's not accomplishing his goal admirably. Every time this dumbass shows up in the news, he seems to reach new levels of stupidity. Remember when this POS bought a $31,000 dining room table for his office because he said the old one was "dangerous"?

Keep that thought in mind when you read this story.

To really appreciate this scumbag's effort, read the ENTIRE story:

Ben Carson Declared Mission Accomplished in East St. Louis—Where Public Housing Is Still a Disaster

The HUD secretary came to town last year and declared residents were no longer at risk, three decades after the federal government took over public housing here. In fact, the complexes are falling apart and a woman was killed in the weeks before his visit.


In a brief speech, Carson said that when former President Ronald Reagan’s HUD took over the housing authority five presidential administrations ago, “the residents were at risk, and the future of our children was at risk.”

“Not anymore,” he boldly declared.

In the months leading up to Carson’s visit, however, HUD’s own inspectors had failed nine of East St. Louis’ 12 sprawling public housing projects, citing a wide variety of health and safety violations, according to federal records obtained by The Southern Illinoisan.
And now, after years of congressional funding cuts to public housing programs, the Trump administration has proposed slashing far more. HUD funding for major repairs at public housing complexes, for instance, has fallen 35 percent—from about $4.2 billion in fiscal 2000 to $2.7 billion in 2018, according to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, a liberal-leaning think tank. Earlier this year, the White House proposed completely eliminating this funding
