Ben Carson Defends Donald Trump: Show Me a Politician Who Doesn’t Tell Lies (The Washington Free Beacon)
Dr. Ben Carson offered an unusual defense of Donald Trump’s tenuous relationship with the truth during a Thursday interview with The View, challenging the show’s hosts to “[show] me a politician who doesn’t tell lies.”
Joy Behar, one of the show’s liberal cohosts, reminded Carson of Trump’s attacks against him when they were rivals for the GOP nomination. Trump likened Carson to a child molester at one point. Trump also mocked Carson’s violent youth and sleepy demeanor on the campaign trail when the two were, at one point, neck-and-neck in polls of Republican primary voters.
“He even compared you to a child molester, come on,” Behar said. “It could be personal, even.”
