That just happened.
This is not a test.
During an appearance yesterday on Fox Business Networks Cavuto Coast to Coast, former presidential hopeful Ben Carson weighed in on the news that Harriet Tubman had been selected to replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill, reports USA TODAY.
“Well, I think Andrew Jackson was a tremendous secretary,” Carson said. “I mean, a tremendous president. Andrew Jackson was the last president who actually balanced the federal budget, where we had no national debt. In honor of that, we kick him off of the money?”
So where exactly does Carson think that Tubman belongs?
“I love Harriet Tubman,” Carson said. “I love what she did. But we can find another way to honor her. Maybe a $2 bill.”
Newsflash, Ben: The $2 bill has been out of commission since 2003. Whatchu tryin’ to say?
