During a 95-minute speech Thursday, Donald Trump delivered a scathing attack on Ben Carson, his closest rival in the polls for the Republican presidential nomination.
It makes for the primary’s most fascinating moment thus far.
Had traitor RINOs in the GOP establishment or godless liberals in the mainstream media told Iowa Republicans that the retired neurosurgeon is like a child molester and that his supporters are stupid, the base would’ve erupted with fury. It’s just like those coastal elites to be egregiously unfair to a nice man like Carson.
Here is what Trump said about Carson:
...he wrote a book. And in the book he said terrible things about himself. He said that he’s pathological and that he’s got basically a pathological disease. Now he wrote this I guess before he was running for office or thought that he was running for office. And I don’t want a person that’s got pathological disease. I don’t want it. I’m not saying he’s got it, he said it.
This isn’t something that I’m saying, like “Oh, he’s pathological liar.” I’m not saying it! He said he’s got pathological disease. He actually said pathological temper.
And then he defined it as disease. So he said he has pathological disease.
Now. If you’re pathological, there’s no cure for that, folks.
Okay, there’s no cure for that. And I did one of the shows today. And I don’t want to say what I said. But I’ll tell you anyway. I said that if you’re a child molester, a sick puppy, you’re a child molester, there’s no cure for that. There’s only one cure—we don’t want to talk about that cure. That’s the ultimate cure. Well, there’s two, there’s death, and the other thing.
After the castration talk, Trump got back to attacking Carson, declaring, “He said he went after his mother with a hammer. He hit her on the head, or he wanted to hit her on the head, or he hit her on the head. And I said, wow, that’s tough. Man. Did anybody in this audience ever go after their mother to hit her with a hammer?” Then he vacillated between implying that Carson is an unstable thug who can’t be trusted in office because of violent things that he wrote about in his memoir, and declaring that his memoir is obvious bullshit that only dupes would believe.
