Full disclosure: I (Michele Hickford) met Ben Carson in passing at an event once. I heard him speak at CPAC – and at a GOP dinner a couple weeks ago, where he had to ask the guests to please be quiet (as they were tucking into their surf and turf) because no one was paying attention to him.
From what I can tell, he is a quite a genuinely lovely person and brilliant neurosurgeon. However, a brilliant politician…not so much
Here is a cringe-worthy compilation of Dr. Carson’s comments “in support” of Donald Trump. It’s kind of painful to watch. “Tell me a politician who doesn’t lie.” If Trump gets in and he’s not a good president, you’re only looking at four or eight years.” “Are there better people? Probably.” And it just goes on and on and on.
Oh my goodness. With friends like this…H/T: The Hill via Weasel Zippers
