Ben Carson, No You Didn’t Just Throw Your Wife, Candy, Under The Bus?

Why did you do it Ben? You threw your wife Candy completely under the bus when you blamed her for ordering that $31,000 dining room set for your office. And you did it on television while testifying before Congress.

Let’s back up. You have been catching hell for a while now because it got out you ordered a $31,000 dining room set after being told the maximum allowable for upgrades was $5,000. Every move you’ve made since then was exactly the wrong one.

You transferred out (demoted) the woman who informed you of the limit and now she’s suing you. You lied about having no knowledge of the details and amount of the purchase but you were busted by your e-mails. And now you blamed it all on your wife for making the decision which only brings more attention to the fact she doesn’t work there and you’ve been letting your family run buck wild through your department like they were official.

Ben… you’ve been married to the woman for 43 years. She’s given you three sons. When you were starting out and hardly bringing home any money, she stood by you. When they didn’t initially respect you as a doctor, she had your back ( I saw your movie, Gifted Hands). When you ran for President and people mocked her appearance, she sucked it up and took it. When you went to work for the man who publicly said you had a “pathological temper” and compared you to a “child molester.” She swallowed her pride while watching you cast yours aside. And now at the first sign of trouble, you blame her.

I don’t even care if it’s true Ben, this is the time where you take responsibility and deflect responsibility from your wife. Your marriage will still be important long after you’re gone from the Trump administration, rumor has it you may be gone sooner than you think anyway?

So, what to do now? Go to Candy, apologize for having disparaged her, ask her for direction and do whatever she says. It may take a long time to get back to normal but I have faith in you Ben. One last thing, get another job. To be honest you weren’t doing all that well anyway. You weren’t really helping anyone except your own family and they can go back to earning a legitimate living like the rest of us. You might not get out of the dog house for a long time but you can slowly get your pride back at least. And no more running for President! It’s not a good look on you.

That’s all Ben, I’m just trying to look out for you like I know you would for me.
