Why Did Ben Carson Endorse Donald Trump?

Former presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson endorsed bloviating billionaire and reality TV actor Donald Trump on Friday, saying that there are “two different Donald Trumps,” which may be the understatement of the century.

On Facebook Friday, the formerly esteemed Dr. Carson argued that, “Our country is at a crossroads and in the midst of a moral crisis,” then goes on to proudly endorse the presidential candidate who is at best one of the immoral in American history. “It is with that in mind that I endorse Donald Trump for President.”

Huh? Perhaps there are “two different Ben Carsons,” too.

It was only November of last year when Donald Trump was performing one of the most vicious smears and character assassinations in modern political history against Ben Carson, equating Carson’s admitted childhood temper issues to a being a pedophile, “child molester” in Trump’s own words. Trump also repeatedly referred to Carson as “a sick puppy.”

Carson seemed to brush those comments off today, calling Trump’s personal smears “part of the game,” a game he entered, supposedly to change.

Now he’s endorsing the biggest game-player of all.

Ben Carson, a devout Christian man, just endorsed the only Christian in world history (in other words, not a Christian and even worse, someone who is lying about being one in order to dupe voters) to have never in his life asked God for forgiveness of sins.

Ben Carson’s endorsement of serial adulterer Donald Trump makes no sense logically or spiritually, but it may make sense on a much more basal level — political opportunism.

A new poll out this month puts Dr. Ben Carson as the top pick to be Donald Trump’s running mate, should he go on to be the eventual GOP nominee, which based upon the current delegate count, is at least considered to be the favorite.

Does Ben Carson just want to be Trump’s VP? Who knows?

But one thing we do know, Ben Carson’s endorsement of Donald Trump is not a principled one. Trump is the anti-Ben Carson on every level, from a policy standpoint to a morality standpoint, and apparently I’m not the only one who is scratching their head over this.

Carson has often urged political discourse to be issues oriented, preached against gutter politics and the politics of personal destruction. Then he endorses a vulgarian, a person who cannot debate the issues — in fact doesn’t even know the issues better than your average seventh grader — and only resorts to personal insults and character assassinations to bully his opponents into submission.

Carson endorses Trump, who encourages his crowds to punch dissenters in the face and whose own campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, roughed up Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields, admitted it, and then lied that he didn’t do it.

Perhaps Carson is still butthurt over the “Trumped-up” charge that Cruz, who has to the best of my knowledge never said a negative word about Ben Carson, the much-ballyhooed incident in which the Carson campaign put out a release that Carson was leaving the race after the Iowa Caucus — to go change his clothes — in FLORIDA.

CNN and others reported this absurd campaign announcement as confusing considering the New Hampshire primary was just days away from the Iowa Caucus and some in the Cruz campaign — not Ted Cruz himself mind you — retweeted and spread the true story.

Cruz apologized, unfortunately, even he did nothing wrong, leaving Trump, Carson and others room to pile on as if Cruz was spreading rumors that Carson was dropping out of the race.

Maybe Carson is holding the most un-Christlike grudge of all grudges and is willing to lose his soul and principles over it. Who knows?

And then there were the times that Trump smeared Carson’s religion. But no matter. Carson now proclaims that he and the vile Trump have “buried the hatchet.

Carson said that he supports Donald Trump because he deeply cares about America (as if Ted Cruz, who has fought to defend the U.S. Constitution his entire life, or the other candidates don’t), even though there is no evidence in Trump’s 70 years which indicate that Donald Trump cares about anything more than — Donald Trump.

Ben Carson is no longer a threat to the future Trump dictatorship, therefore, Trump will set aside his Saul Alinsky tactics and pretend that he respects and befriends the one he recently called a “child molester.”
