Ben Carson Rejects Job In Trump White House: 'Feels He Has No Government Experience'

No, really. Why didn't that prevent him from running for President?

From our archives, earlier this year: "Ben Carson says that even if Trump is a bad President, it's only four years."

You can't make this stuff up. The Hill reports that Dr. Ben Carson has turned down a job with the Trump administration because he doesn't have any experience.

Business manager and close friend Armstrong Williams said Carson won't join the incoming Trump administration and would only serve as an unofficial adviser....

"Dr. Carson was never offered a specific position, but everything was open to him," Williams told The Hill in a phone call.

"Dr. Carson feels he has no government experience, he's never run a federal agency. The last thing he would want to do was take a position that could cripple the presidency."

Remember that Armstrong Williams is Ben Carson's co-grifter in chief. Remember that Carson suspended his campaign to go on a book tour. Carson was always in it for the money, and can continue that con with his TAX-DEDUCTIBLE contributions to his "My Faith Votes" group.

Indeed, ANOTHER tragedy about the Trump election, is that now the GOP has no motivation to fix their "running for President for profit" problem. If Trump had lost, they could have done a "require tax returns" thing to prevent another Trump-type candidacy.
