Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson announced that he’s going to read to children during the coronavirus pandemic.
According to the HUD Twitter account, Carson began with “Cookies: A Mr. and Mrs. Green Adventure.”
Throughout the summer, @SecretaryCarson will publish weekly story time videos for children who may be spending the summer at home because of COVID-19. He is kicking off the series with a reading of “Cookies,” by Keith Baker. pic.twitter.com/mrTyUEKB65

Carson, who hasn’t done much as HUD secretary has managed to stay out of the limelight and keep the president happy. Given the coronavirus shutdown across the country, and the resurgence of the virus, Carson said that children should continue reading even during the summer pandemic.
It prompted some to advise the HUD staff to make sure he keeps his eyes open.

Is someone going to stand by to make sure @SecretaryCarson stays away?

Ben Carson should be working figuring out a way to provide decent housing to the underserved during a coronavirus pandemic, perhaps working air conditioners for the summer? someone else can read to the kids
