    These are excepts from Trump's Cabinet meeting. Lots of people spoke, but I have extracted the contributions by Ben Carson.

    Trump: If you want to leave, that's your option. You can leave anytime you want, okay? Please, Ben.

    Carson: Thank you, Mr. President. And just before I talk a little bit about what's going on at HUD, I just want to thank you for your incredible courage ---- and stamina and resilience with unwithering criticism, unfair criticism, all the time. And I would just, sort of, sum it up by saying: Would you rather have a non-politician whose speech is unfiltered, who gets a lot of stuff done? Or somebody with a silver tongue who gets nothing done?

    Trump: But I thought I had a silver tongue. [Laughter] I heard that so often. I always thought I had a silver tongue. [Laughter] But I agree with you.

    Carson: But, you know, as I told you before, I think God is using you.

    Trump: Thank you very much.

    Carson: I really appreciate that.

    Trump: And you have said that, and I appreciate it. Thank you, Ben.

    And blah, blah, blah...

    Ben Carson is a survivor in Trump's Cabinet when so many others have been shown the door. This conversation highlights why Carson is here to stay...

    He is almost as big an incompetent hack as Trump. And since he cringes and fawns so well Trump has kept him around.
