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.
