Ben Carson calls slaves ‘immigrants’: Samuel Jackson goes off, Twitter reacts

Can neurosurgeon’s have brain freezes? On Monday, March 6, during a a speech to his staff, the newly-appointed Secretary of Housing and Urban Development refers to slaves as “immigrants”, who dreamed of their families achieving happiness and prosperity in America.

Perhaps Carson was attempting to justify President Donald Trump’s new executive order restricting entry into the United States for nationals of six majority-Muslim countries (Sudan, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, and Yemen) and suspending all refugee admissions for 120 days.

From calling him brain dead to the stupidest, Twitter didn’t let this ride.
