Here’s something you don’t see every day: a cabinet meeting that opened with a prayer from HUD Secretary Ben Carson:

In an unusual moment, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson led members of the Trump cabinet in prayer during a meeting on Tuesday, thanking God “for a President and for cabinet members who are courageous, who are willing to face the winds of controversy in order to provide a better future for those who come behind us.”

This was carried on CNN Wednesday.
