As he does every year once Christmas Day is over, President Trump has started thawing out Ben Carson, who has been in cryogenic stasis for the past 10 months.
“It usually takes a good month to get him working again.”
Though he uses most of his cabinet year round, certain members are put away when they’re not needed, a category Carson falls into as Trump’s political black friend.
“As opposed to my fun black friend who is Kanye.”
Trump also likes to store Education Secretary Betsy DeVos in a janitor’s closet for much of the year, which she is said to appreciate as her brain tires easily.
“We don’t want it to get full.”
Despite appearances commerce secretary Wilbur Ross is not packed up at any time of year by Trump who values Ross’s ability to boost the cranky old white guy profile of Cabinet.
“Wilbur just likes to sleep at lot. But when you wake him up he’s sharp as a tack ready to suggest unpaid furloughed Federal workers should take out loans from their buddies on Wall Street to see them through.”
Trump said Carson will be on full display for the whole of February.
“That month just wouldn’t be the same without Ben.”
