Funniest Moments From Ben Carson’s Confirmation Hearing

Dr. Ben Carson on Thursday answered questions from lawmakers during his Senate confirmation hearing to head the Department of Housing and Urban Development in the Trump administration.

During a long hearing Carson took the time to make the senators and his staff laugh.

Carson said that Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown (D.) reminded him of the character Columbo from the 1970s detective show of the same name. Brown said he took it as a compliment and that it was not the first time he has heard the comparison.
