It was announced on Wednesday that Harriet Tubman would be replacing Andrew Jackson on the front of the $20 bill. But according to former Republican Presidential candidate, Ben Carson, Tubman should maybe grace a bill worth a little less in value.

During a Fox Business Network interview Wednesday, Carson explained that Jackson was a “tremendous President” and that “in honor of that we kick him off the money.”

He followed up by expressing his love for Tubman and “what she did” but that “we can find another way to honor her. Maybe a $2 bill?”

This time around Cosby announced on his Facebook that he’d be doing a set a couple hours before. He wore a sweatshirt that said “hello friend” and also played the drums alongside the Tony Williams Jazz Quartet.

Folks in the audience are laughing … so maybe it’s working.

#BillCosby has returned to comedy since his trial last summer.

The disgraced comedian’s retrial on sexual assault charges is set to begin in April, and a new jury selection begins at the end of March. He averted a decision this past June when a jury couldn’t agree on a verdict … ending in a mistrial.
