It seems like someone in the president’s cabinet has been caught lying again and this time, Ben Carson’s wife has joined him in the charade!

CNN has reported that emails have surfaced that show Ben Carson and his wife, Candy, selected the $31,000 dining set, themselves, despite numerous attempts to deflect from the trail of emails that prove the pair’s direct involvement in choosing the pricey furniture, which was apparently $26,000 more than what was originally budgted for the furniture upgrade.

Actual Tweet from Ben and Candy Carson’s Twitter Account…Ben & Candy Carson:

✔@RealBenCarson “We suspect, based on past attempts, that they will continue to probe and make further accusations even without evidence or substantiation. We will continue to ask for God’s guidance to do what is right.” 2/2 10:42 PM — Feb 28, 2018

When Carson’s office was contacted for comment, his administrative aide said Secretary Carson was unavailable for comment, having been sequestered in the office dining room where he was believed to be in a prayer meeting with Candy, and Franklin Graham, praying for guidance and a new Bible verse to post that might convince naysayers of their innocence, save him and Candy from further scrutiny, and (since everyone was already on their knees) asking to protect his son from actions that raised DC eyebrows when he allegedly allowed his son, Ben Carson Jr., to help organize an agency “listening tour” in Baltimore last summer, despite warnings that doing so might run afoul of federal ethics rules.

HUD’s deputy general counsel for operations, said in a statement, that officials believed that this “gave the appearance that the Secretary may be using his position for his son’s private gain.”

As of this writing, no Bible verses have been found to be of sufficient breadth and depth to cloak their dishonesty, Praise God.

“Tell the truth. If you tell the truth all the time you don’t have to worry three months down the line about what you said three months earlier. Truth is always the truth. You won’t have to complicate your life by trying to cover up.”
