Ben Carson Has No Sympathy For POOR PEOPLE, Says They Have Themselves To Blame

Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Ben Carson said in a radio interview that poverty to “a large extent is also a state of mind.”

“You take somebody that has the right mindset, you take everything from them and put them on the street and I guarantee in a little while they’ll be right back up there,” he said in a SiriusXM radio interview released Wednesday. “And you take somebody with the wrong mindset, you can give them everything in the world, they’ll work their way right back down to the bottom.”

Carson added that a “defeatist attitude” could prevent people from escaping poverty.

“You know, that’s real poverty,” he said. “If you don’t have that defeatist attitude, there’s hope for you.”

“I think the majority of people don’t have that defeatist attitude, but they sometimes just don’t see the way and that’s where government can come in, and be very helpful,” Carson added. “It can provide a ladder of opportunity, it can provide the mechanism that we demonstrate to them what can be done.” Sirius has released Carson’s interview to news outlets to promote the broadcast.



  1. Ben Carson is as much of an idiot as his boss Donnie. Some people have fallen on hard times through no fault of their own but the cards have not fallen their way. Ie: some sort of accident, health issue, employer issues, like trump not paying his contractors and them going bankrupt because of it.
