PALM BEACH, FL - After partaking in a wonderful four year power nap to recharge the old batteries and freshen up, HUD secretary Ben Carson has just woken up to find the country in tatters and democracy in turmoil.
After putting his head down for forty winks shortly after his nomination in March of 2017, Carson was rudely woken up earlier today by the mail man ringing the doorbell after noticing that his mailbox had been piling up.
Once all stretched out and fully awake, Carson then proceeded to put on his favorite news network and was shocked to learn of the goings on of the past few days.
“What the hell is going on?” he reportedly muttered to himself, “What happened while I napped? One minute Trump wins the presidency, the next there’s a coup on the Capitol! God damn it, I was just about to get to work too.”
It is believed that Carson spent a few minutes considering what he should do regarding the possibility of resigning, however in doing so he consumed most of his energy.
He has now returned to the sofa for another power nap.
