Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson used to be a rockstar in Baltimore. But, after running as a Republican in the 2016 presidential election and accepting a post in the Trump administration, he has sullied his good name forever, according to a new report from the Associated Press.
Carson grew up in poverty, but he didn't let it define or hamper his dreams. He worked hard to eventually become the Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore. In 1987, he gained fame after performing an historic 22-hour surgery to separate conjoined twins. It's all in his autobiography, Gifted Hands. Then, his career took a slightly different turn. At the National Prayer Breakfast in 2013, Carson gave a now iconic speech about the dangers of socialized medicine, just feet away from President Obama. It made him a hero in the conservative movement and encouraged him to pursue a political career. He now serves as secretary for Housing and Urban Development in the Trump White House.
Carson's entry into politics, some Baltimore residents say, was a mistake. Since he is now associating himself with Trump, they don't want to associate with him.

This is such crap. There is a growing number of people who are realizing the Democratic party has not helped them.
Democrat not democratic
And I'll bet many more say the guy is an inspiration but we'll never see an article on it.
Democrats are dreadful people...
More propaganda from the All Propaganda network???
He had the audacity to leave the plantation, to think for himself and to make a contribution to society. Close minded people who shun him are scum and he is better off without them.
...he has sullied his good name forever...
And judge a man by the enemies he makes.
“Democrats are dreadful people..”.
They really are.
Please see my tagline.
The democrats are the Party of Lenin. They take their orders from above and march in lockstep with the principle of Iron Discipline. No one is allowed to break ranks without consequences.
It’s really more like a cult.
Black man refuses to be on the Democrat plantation, now is considered evil by leftists, what else is knew
Support Free Republic, Folks!
DR. Carson has more integrity in his little finger than the entire mass of the DNC. A man of GOD, a man of his word.
NOTHING but PRAISE for Dr. Carson from this voter.
Dr. Carson has better things to do than hang around with such small-minded people.
DOCTOR Ben Carson is a serious threat to the “Democrats”.
He, for one, puts the big LIE to the LEFT’S motto that, “The deck is stacked against you because of your color and you wiil not be allowed to succeed.”
Doctor Carson, a man of color, decided that as an American, he was not automatically prevented from rising to any height whatever.
Why, someday, even a “man of color” could rise to the presidency, believe it or not.
Ben Carson is the man who should be “Shining Star” for the entire “minority” community. And I bet he can’t sing, dance or even through a football.
That’s what happens when a city becomes 99.999% Democrat-controlled. If you say something good about Carson your life will likely become a living hell.
“Democrats are dreadful people...”
I once had a Democrat friend in college, He stole my girlfriend when I wasn’t looking. Haven’t had one since...
The AP hates successful black men that can think for themselves.
....he has sullied his good name forever, according to a new report from the Associated Press.
