Ben Carson, the nominee for secretary of housing and urban development, gave a very special speech during Thursday's confirmation hearing. He decided to tell the American public a little bit about his backstory—which involved how he used called his childhood haters "turkeys."

During last night's episode of Desus & Mero, the hosts discussed Carson's childhood tale and how the HUD secretary let it slip that he isn't planning to do anything for anyone during his time in office. He might need to reread his job description one more time.
