Ben Carson On Puerto Rico: Rich And Poor ‘In The Same Boat’

Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson falsely claimed that rich and poor people are “in the same boat” regarding the hurricane disaster that struck the U.S. territory.

Emily Atkin of The New Republic quoted Carson’s bizarre statement, which he made during an event put on by The Hill news site.

DC Examiner reporter Anna Giaritelli‏ tweeted Carson’s attack on his critics, during the same speech:

Carson, who did not hear President Donald Trump’s phone call to Myeshia Johnson, widow of slain Army Sgt. La David Johnson, blamed the media for accurately reporting the widow’s account of the phone call: “No matter what he says or does, they criticize him,” notes The Hill.
