HUD Secretary Ben Carson Gets Stuck In An Elevator
Let’s hope Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson isn’t claustrophobic. On Wednesday morning, the administration official got stuck in an elevator at a low income housing complex in Miami, where he’s on a listening tour this week.
And of course the whole thing was captured on Twitter.
Renee Rodriguez, a reporter for The Miami Herald, set the scene, while CNN’s Kate Bennett put the whole incident in all caps.
“THE HUD SECRETARY IS STUCK IN A PUBLIC HOUSING ELEVATOR,” Bennett announced rather quietly.

Thankfully, the incident appeared to get resolved.

UPDATE: Carson went on SiriusXM Wednesday and spoke with host David Webb. He addressed the elevator incident: “Well, you know, everything has its ups and downs,” he kidded. “But no, it was no big deal. It was a wonderful opportunity for us to all get to know each other a little better.” Listen to the entire SiriusXM interview with Carson here.
