From BUSINESS INSIDER:
Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson downplayed his “REO” gaffe during a congressional hearing on Tuesday and claimed the incident was attributed to partisan attempts “to ridicule people.”
“We throw around acronyms all the time, particularly in government,” Carson said in an interview with The Hill. “And you don’t really even think about what do the letters mean? But you know what the things is.”
I wonder if he had the same kind of acronym problem when he was in medicine. After all, does what EEG stands for really important to a neurosurgeon? Anyhoo, in other news, the new HUD seal was revealed today.
