HUD Secretary Ben Carson Confuses Foreclosures For Oreo Cookies, Dodges Question About Safe Housing

Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson confused real estate owned (REO) foreclosed properties for OREO cookies when questioned by Democratic Rep. Katie Porter of California during a House Financial Services Committee hearing.

Carson repeatedly dodged a question about safe public housing from Democratic Rep. Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts.

When Carson dodged her yes-or-no question, Pressley said she was “reclaiming” her time, which Carson mockingly did.
