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."

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.
