The Number One Thing Ben Carson Had to Be Assured of Before He Could Endorse Donald Trump

Already operating under the suspicion that he may not actually believe or mean many of the things bloviating billionaire and reality TV actor Donald Trump says, including his newfound “flexible” viewpoints on immigration, Dr. Ben Carson has just added to that uncertainty in a way that undermines the real estate mogul’s already questionable believability and trustworthiness.

Both Ben Carson supporters and non-supporters have been scratching their heads at Carson’s perplexing endorsement of Donald Trump, as it doesn’t make sense on any level, especially since Trump once compared Carson to a “child molester” (all the way back in November of 2015).

So what, in addition to being guaranteed a position of influence in a Trump administration, pushed humble Christian conservative Ben Carson towards endorsing unprincipled, unstable, bloviating billionaire Donald Trump, the only “Christian” in the history of mankind who has never asked God for forgiveness?

In an interview with The Hill three days ago, Carson explained what he needed to hear in order for him to endorse Trump.

“I needed to know that he could listen to other people, that he could change his opinions, and that some of the more outlandish things that he’s said, that he didn’t really believe those things,” Carson revealed.

When asked which statements made by Trump that he actually may not believe, Carson refused to disclose.

“I’ll let him talk about that because I don’t think it’s fair for me to relay a private conversation,” he said.

This cannot be a reassuring to any voters questioning whether Donald Trump — those who see him refreshing for “telling it like it is” — believes his own words or if his presidential campaign is just an extension of his reality TV acting career.

Carson’s admission and confirmation that Trump’s words are unbelievable dovetails with the recent discovery of an off-the-record conversations Trump reportedly had with the New York Times, in which Trump allegedly reassured the Times to not get too worked up about his rhetoric because he doesn’t actually believe what he’s saying, that it’s all pretty much an act, including his tough talk on immigration.

The NYT will not release the conversation without Trump’s authorization, permission he refuses to give.
