Ben Carson would give ‘very serious consideration’ to Cabinet post

Dr. Ben Carson is giving a second opinion.

Less than a week after saying he would not seek a Cabinet position in the Trump administration, the retired neurosurgeon told Fox News Channel’s “Fox Report Weekend” on Sunday that he was open to accepting a spot on Trump’s White House team.

“Basically, I’ve said my preference is to be outside and to act as an adviser, but if after going through the process they all conclude it would be much better to have me in the Cabinet, I would have to give that very serious consideration,” Carson said. “It’s just not my preference.”

Carson’s about-face comes just days after an embarrassing back-and-forth during which Carson had to bat down claims made by his business manager, Armstrong Williams, that Carson wasn’t seeking the job due to the complexity of the position.

“Dr. Carson feels he has no government experience, he’s never run a federal agency,” Williams told The Hill on Tuesday. “The last thing he would want to do was take a position that could cripple the presidency.”

Carson walked back some of what Williams said in a Facebook post later that day.

    Hooray Dr. Ben Carson, America needs your wisdom, knowledge and your
    very good temperament, and demeanor. You present the ‘True American
    behavior which was taught to the majority of our children and their parents,
    not the “infamous Michael Moore acts of shame.” We will welcome you as
    America would love to Welcome well behaved hired college students to
    NOT ACT AND DESTROY THE MATURE IMAGE OF TRUE AMERICANS’
    IN COLLEGES. BEWARE OF THOSE WHO REEK THE HAVOC OF CORRUPTION, which will follow you all of the days of your life. Choose wisely and honorably during your lifetime. That way you will not have to
    appologize for your wrong acts of choice during ALL of your lifetime.

    As long as Dr. Carson has Armstrong Williams as an adviser he should stay out of politics.

  • Tiger

    Good I can understand why he and Herman Cain got out, the intense blast of serious butchering of any candidate is brutal and not many survive.

    Surgeon General.

    Maybe Dr. Carson should serve as a health care advisor for the president. We need people with a knowledge of how the health care industry works to help find a solution which can replace Obamacare.

  • slbush7

    WE need his input intro healthcare. I adore him as he is so kind, brilliant and gentle spoken. Obamacare is a scourge on this country and that is mainly why he ran for office I am sure. I saw that right away as I am a Medical Diagnostic Sales rep and see what is going on with the physicians and patients. A nightmare from hell! Please Dr Carson stay fighting for us, we need your medical knowledge as the most needy patient (USA), you have ever had. Heal us please!

      It was divine that Trump won this election with all the voting machine and phony voter registrations goi9ng on. My son’s vote changed to Hillary 3 times as he was trying to vote straight Rep ticket, and that was no accident. Trump being elected was by a much higher power than mere corruption ever could manage. Surprise! Trump wins election 2016. Don’t mess with God.

  • Richard Frick

    Dr. Carson has more knowledge and intelligence than most people and has the temperament to provide extremely valuable benefits to All of our Citizens. Contrast Dr. Carsons brilliance to the only asset that obama brought with zero knowledge, puppet string manipulated by soros and a glib tongue than was lethal for those who trusted in our Country while he systematically bowed to his masters of destruction.

      You forgot to mention BHO’s TelePrompTer.

    • Edith

      Then why does he continually have Williams as his spokeperson?

  • Helga miller

    Please get Dr. Carson into Health and Human Services. It would be right up his alley!

    I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THIS MAN OVER THE MEDICAL FIELD, HE IS WHAT WE NEED AT THIS TIME TO GIVE US THE PROPER HEALTH CARE SYSTEM.

    KOREAN WAR VET 51/53 A REG. DEMOCRAT, AND MOST OF ALL A CHRISTIAN. SEND THIS TO ALL YOU KNOW.

    PRESIDENT OBAMA A CONFESSED MUSLIM ON NATIONWIDE TV. A LAW WAS PASSED IN 1952 (PUBLIC LAW 414, CHAPTER 2, SECTION 212) BANNING ALL MUSLIMS, AND WAR WAS DECLARED ON ISLAM BY PRESIDENT JEFFERSON.

    NOTHING HE HAS SIGNED, OR ORDERED IS LEGAL AND CAN BE REDONE.

    IS this is why you OBAMA,

    * didn’t go to France to show solidarity against the Muslim terrorists:

    * spoke these words at an Islamic dinner -“I am one of you.”

    * spoke of “My Muslim faith.”

    * gave $100 million in U.S. taxpayer funds to re-build foreign mosques.

    * wrote that in the event of a conflict- “I will stand with the Muslims.”

    * assured the Egyptian Foreign Minister that – “I am a Muslim.”

    * bowed in submission before the Saudi King.

    * sat for 20 years in a Liberation Theology Church condemning Christianity and professing Marxism.

    * exempted Muslims from penalties under Obamacare that the rest of us have to pay.

    * purposefully omitted – “endowed by our Creator ” – from your recitation of The Declaration Of Independence.

    * mocked the Bible and Jesus Christ’s Sermon on the Mount while repeatedly referring to the ‘HOLY’ Qur’an.

    * raveled the Islamic world denigrating the United States of America.

    * instantly threw the support of your administration behind the building of the Ground Zero Victory mosque overlooking the hallowed crater of the World Trade Center.

    * refused to attend the National Prayer Breakfast, but hastened to host an Islamic prayer breakfast at the White House.

    * ordered Georgetown Univ. and Notre Dame to shroud all vestiges of Jesus Christ BEFORE you would agree to go there to speak, but in contrast, you have NEVER requested the mosques you have visited to adjust their decor.

    * appointed anti-Christian fanatics to your Czar Corps.

    * said that NASA’s “foremost mission” was an outreach to Muslim communities.

    * as an Illinois Senator was the ONLY individual who would speak in favor of infanticide.

    * was the first President not to give a Christmas Greeting from the White House, and went so far as to hang photos of Chairman Mao on the WH tree.

    * curtailed the military tribunals of all Islamic terrorists.

    * refused to condemn the Ft. Hood killer as an Islamic terrorist.

    * has refused to speak-out concerning the horrific executions of women throughout the Muslim culture, but yet, have submitted Arizona to the UN for investigation of hypothetical human-rights abuses.

    * who when queried in India refused to acknowledge the true extent of radical global Jihadists, and instead profusely praised Islam in a country that is 82% Hindu and the victim of numerous Islamic terrorists assaults.

    * funneled $900 Million in U.S. taxpayer dollars to Hamas.

    * ordered the USPS to honor the MUSLIM holiday with a new commemorative stamp.

    * directed our UK Embassy to conduct outreach to help “empower” the British Muslim community.

    * funded mandatory Arabic language and culture studies in Grammar schools across our country.

    * follows the Muslim custom of not wearing any form of jewelry during Ramadan.

    * departs for Hawaii over the Christmas season so as to avoid past criticism for NOT participating in seasonal WH religious events.

    * was uncharacteristically quick to join the chorus of the Muslim Brotherhood to depose Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak, formerly America’s strongest ally in North Africa; but, remain muted in your non-response to the Brotherhood led slaughter of Egyptian Christians.

    * appointed your chief adviser, Valerie Jarrett, an Iranian, who is a member of the Muslim Sisterhood, an off-shoot of the Muslim Brotherhood.

    * said this country is not a Christian nation.

    * said the Muslim call to worship is the most beautiful sound on earth.

    * GAVE 150 BILLION PLUS TO IRAN.

    * RANSOMED 4 PEOPLE FOR 400 MILLION.

    * ARE YOU, KERRY, HILLIARY & THE BIASED NEWS MEDIA TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTRY?

    GET BEHIND PRESIDENT ELECT DONALD TRUMP, TODAY.

    DEMCRATS, REPUBLICANS, INDEPENDENTS, GOOGLE,(THE CLINTON CHRONICLES), IF YOU LOVE AMERICA YOU WILL LISTEN TO THIS AND THE BELOW ABOUT OBAMAS BIRTH AND THEN RE-SEND TO FRIENDS, LISTEN TO THE END.

    ANGREY PATRIOT REPORTED THAT BILL CLINTONS FORMER MISTRESS SALLY MILER SAID HE SNORTED COKE OFF HER TABLE, AND THAT HILLARY ALSO SNORTED COKE AND SMOKED POT. BILL DID PARDON HIS BRO. FOR DRUG ABUSE. IS THIS TRUE?

    COULD THIS BE WHY THEY DO NOT WANT THE BORDER CLOSED.

    CLICK ON YOUTUBE LISTEN TO OBAMA SAY HE WAS NOT BORN IN THE USA.ON THIS AND LISTEN TO OBAMA SAY HE WAS NOT BORN IN THE USA. BUT WAS BORN IN KENYON WHEN GIVING A SPEECH, THIS CAN BE SEEN ON, GOOGLE (TRUMP AMEN TIME). SO WE DO NOT HAVE A LEGAL PRESIDENT. OBAMA SAID HE WAS A MUSLIM ON NATIONWIDE TV & MUSLIMS HAVE BEEN BANNED FROM THE USA FOR 200 YEARS, AND AGAIN IN 1952 BY LAW PASSED BY CONGRESS. SO. NO MUSLIM IS HERE LEGALLY.

    PASTORS A PRIVATE FAITH THAT DO NOT ACT WHEN FACED WITH CROOKS, IS NO FAITH AT ALL.

    GOOLE,(THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015) IT IS ABOUT THE CLINTONS, TELL YOUR CHURCH MEMBERS TO GOOGLE IT ALSO.

    TRUMP SAYS HE WILL REPEAL THE LAW THAT STOPS EXAMPTION AND ALLOW CHURCHES AND OTHER ENTITIES THAT ARE BARRED TODAY TO HAVE FREE SPEECH AND NOT LOSE THEIR EXEMPTIONS.

    IS THIS WHY THE DEMOCRATS AND SOME REPUBLICANS DO NOT WANT TO CLOSE THE BORDER BECAUSE OF CUTTING OFF THEIR SUPPLY OF DOPE.

    BET YOU WILL NOT LISTEN TO ALL OF THIS. IT TELLS ABOUT MURDER, COCAINE PARTIES, UNDERAGE SEX, SEX PARTIES, MONEY LAUNDREY AND DOPE RUNNING FROM JUDGES, STATE OFFICIALS, ETC.
