Twitter Gets Snarky After Slate Somehow Confuses Ben Carson With James Mattis


Twitter got its snark on Thursday when a tweet from Slate about Trump’s pick for HUD Secretary Ben Carson was posted to social media with a picture of Gen. James Mattis instead.


Carson does not particularly resemble Mattis. In a follow-up tweet, Slate issued a correction and explained that the piece they linked to was a live blog covering both men.

Still, social media had fun with the mix up.
