  • U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson touring an apartment at Eureka Garden in Jacksonville

But the Miami Herald reports Mourning was waiting anxiously in the building's lobby as firefighters labored to pry the doors open, and wasn't in the elevator with the group.

But on the way down from the rooftop of an apartment building, Carson, Miami-Dade County Public Housing Director Michael Liu and five others got stuck in the elevator, the Miami Herald reported.

Carson was visiting the new $22.8 million affordable housing complex that was developed in part by a nonprofit run by former National Basketball Association star Alonzo Mourning in Miami's Overtown area.

Jann Wenner, whose speech opened the show, said of Berry, "no one would be in this room if it wasn't for this man". I know Neil Young was supposed to be here and people are saying to me like I had something to do with it.


Of course Twitter had fun with the idea that Carson was trapped in an elevator. So was Mourning really to blame?

Since failed presidential candidate and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson signed on to his second career as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, the public at-large hasn't heard much from the sleepy politician. Last month, the politician came under fire for insinuating that slaves were immigrants who wanted a better life. No one was injured and they were released after about 15 or 20 minutes.

"Well, we got all of our questions answered", Carson joked, according to NBC 6.
