NOTE TO BEN CARSON, SOME ONE CALLING ANOTHER CA CHILD MOLESTER IS NOT JUST POLITICS …
Wow, former Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson admitted that Trump attacking him and even calling him a child molester worked. Carson stated that the attacks of person distraction did work to an extent and some people must have believed him. Carson also went on to say he chalked it up to politics. REALLY BEN? Sorry, this is not politics, its disgusting. Which makes Ben Carson’s endorsement of Trump even more surprising. It was not the Cruz campaign’s so-called lies that Carson was getting out of the race that cost Carson votes in Iowa as Trump railed on, it was Trump’s viscous attacks on Carson’s character. The fact that Carson never fought back on such hideous comments was puzzling. Carson was asked this type of attack should be the political norm. Carson stated no, ”but neither should always retaliating.” Actually Ben, this was worth fighting back over. Americans did not think that Carson was a child molester as Trump opined. What Americans thought was, if you are not going to defend your self over such vile personal attacks, how were you going to defend them?
I am not sure Mr. Carson if we want this to become the political norm and you just set a precedent for it.
After his surprising endorsement of Donald Trump, former candidate Ben Carson said Wednesday that he understands why Trump attacked him during his campaign, even calling him a child molester, saying “it did work.”
Yahoo News and Finance Anchor Bianna Golodryga asked Carson what he thought of some of Trump’s more vicious attacks against him during his time in the 2016 race, citing when Trump insulted Carson’s intelligence and questioning whether or not he was a child molester. The retired neurosurgeon chalked it up to politics.
“He said it was political, he was concerned about the fact that he couldn’t shake me,” Carson said. “I understand, you know, politics, and particularly the politics of personal distraction. You have to admit to some degree that it did work. A lot of people believed him.”
Golodryga asked if this type of attack should become the norm and if, by Carson’s logic, she should teach her son to do the same as Trump did.
“It shouldn’t become status quo,” Carson said. “But neither should always retaliating.”
