Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, a man who thinks slaves came to America looking for opportunity
and Egypt's pyramids were used for storing grain
, got himself stuck in an elevator yesterday.
While touring an affordable housing development in Miami, Carson – along with Public Housing Director Michael Liu and five other damned souls – found himself stuck in an elevator for a solid 20 minutes, reports the Miami Herald.
The $22.8 million housing project was co-developed by former Miami Heat Center Alonzo Mourning, who "apologized profusely" once firefighters freed the former neurosurgeon.
Carson's visit was part of his "national listening tour."
The HUD Secretary didn't seem too upset about the whole ordeal. After all, he did manage to squeeze in a game of foosball.
