If after the past couple of debates you thought that Donald Trump was becoming more presidential in his behavior and dropping the personal attacks against fellow GOP presidential candidates, you’d be mistaken.
Trump celebrated Friday the 13th early on Thursday with a vicious attack against Dr. Ben Carson, the candidate he’s running neck-and-neck with at the top of all national polls.
Trump told CNN on Thursday that Carson, who admittedly had a bad temper 40-50 years ago, was suffering from a “pathological disease” that is comparable to a “child molester.”
Later in Iowa, while speaking for more than 90 minutes during a campaign stop at Iowa Central Community College, Trump insinuated that the people of Iowa were “stupid” for believing Ben Carson’s life story, which he mocked as being unbelievable.
“How stupid are the people of Iowa?” Trump asked the audience of Iowans. “How stupid are the people of the country to believe this crap?” he wondered.
Maybe it’s just me, but I’m going to make the assumption that the way to get people to vote for you is not by calling them stupid. But that’s just me.
