On his way out of Iowa, Ben Carson was pictured on an airplane with a bunch of enthusiastic supporters of President Donald Trump, while wearing a MAGA hat.

The former 2016 Republican presidential candidate was pictured alongside fellow members of Trump's team, who all made the trip to the Midwestern state. He's currently serving as the Trump administration's Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.

"Iowa has so many pleasant memories," the surgeon told Local 5. "The people … they’re very special here in Iowa. People seem to be much more in tune with what’s going on in the country." He traveled to the state to stump for Trump's reelection campaign.

"I think it’s very important that the GOP recognizes that this is more than just a simple election," Carson continued. "We’re talking about ‘Do we want to continue the lifestyle that has characterized American greatness over the centuries, or do we want to switch to another system?'"

However, the picture turned into the perfect opportunity for people to clown Carson, especially during Black History Month:

Ben Carson not having a seat in a photo full of white supremacists seems on brand.

“If we make BEN CARSON awkwardly stand squat in the aisle, it will make it less obvious that everyone on this bus is white.”

It looks like they had Ben Carson is there serving food and beverages, then someone said "sit down and get in the picture with us, uncle Ben"

Harriet Tubman ran, so Rosa could sit, so Ben Carson could.. ..Do whatever it is that he’s doing. It’s only the 4th day of Black History Month folks.

The pic of Dr. Ben Carson reminds me of “Get Out” by #JordanPeele.

Rosa Parks fought so hard so ... Ben Carson could kneel in the aisle of a plane full of bigots.
