Ben Carson Endorses Donald Trump

Republican U.S. presidential candidate Trump greets former Republican presidential candidate Carson after receiving endorsement in Palm Beach, Florida

This morning, Ben Carson endorsed Donald Trump for president.

 

 

This wasn’t a forced-at-gunpoint, betraying-the-ideals-your-political-career Chris Christie-style endorsement, either. Carson appeared, as usual, pretty at ease with himself, and with his professed support of the most bigoted Republican presidential nominee since Barry Goldwater.

“There are two different Donald Trumps. There’s the one you see on the stage, and there’s the one who’s very cerebral, sits there, and considers things very carefully,” Carson said. “That’s the Donald Trump that you’re going to see more and more of right now.”

Carson, of course, was the target of some of Trump’s most vicious attacks when he was a candidate. Both men sought to bring new voters, especially inactive Republicans, into the primary process.

At one point, months ago, Carson was seen as the more viable “outsider” Republican candidate. That was back before Donald Trump became… Donald Trump, possible future president. It was also back before Donald Trump compared Ben Carson’s psychological constitution to that of to a child molester.

Carson wrote off that incident, and every other attack, as “political stuff.” If that’s political stuff, I’d hate to see what sort of “presidential stuff” Ben Carson would throw his support behind in a Trump White House.

    Dr. Carson, and Gov Christie, hope to get the Nr. 2 spot in the GOP ticket.

      I think the doctor may want to be Surgeon General and Gov Christie the Attorney General.

        I think you’re right. Two more good reasons to oppose Trump.

        That would make sense. Free lobotomies and daily witch haunts.

    I think Dr. Carson could end up Surgeon General of the US.

      Dr. Carson is a bright man, but he still thinks like a slave. You could easily tell when debating. He would not dare attack the White debaters. He despises Blacks people and is ready to be used by rich White males. How dare he bashing Obamacare in front of President Obama! Instead of promoting Obamacare he was aligning himself with rich White males to attack Obamacare calling “slavery!” Really did he mean Blacks’ access to preventive health care is slavery? You could also see who the managers of his campaign were -all were White people. But they betrayed him –stealing campaign money. They are now rich. In fact he wanted to use Affirmative Action to be president. It did not work and won’t work. Dr. Carson is not the only Black that despises Blacks. I have quite a few neighbors who think are intellectually inferior to Whites; amazingly, they do not want to be seen with other Blacks and in fact behave like Dr. Carson. Dr. Carson lost Blacks’ votes. Like Herman Cain, we wish Dr. Carson a happy political retirement.

    When someone describes you, based on a superficial assessment, as having a personality of a child molester, is that person being “cerebral”? Does a Jekyll-Hyde complex connote a sense of stability?
    These are the sort of questions that should be pondered in a rational manner by both professional and non-professional people.

    Where does the GOP find Black men like Herman Cain and Ben Carson? After hearing the weird, strange nonsense that flowed out of these men’s mouths I have trouble believing Cain was an executive and Carson was a surgeon. It was like trying to make sense of a Palin speech. How can Carson then go on to endorse Trump after the crap he has said and the way people of color are treated at Trump rallies? Not only is Carson a traitor to his race, he is a traitor to the Christian faith he claims to believe in. What a sad pathetic excuse for a human being!
