In an interview that should give even the most sycophantic Donald Trump supporter pause, the ego-driven GOP presidential frontrunner for almost all of the past three months has jumped the shark, comparing renowned pediatric neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson to a “child molester.”
Ben Carson, a Christian, revealed in his 1992 book, “Gifted Hands” a strong temper that led to a couple of regrettable incidences in his teens, things that happened over four decades ago, something leftist rag Politico has attempted to use as a tool to add lies to in order to remove Carson, the only black 2016 presidential candidate, out of the race.
But Ben Carson claims that the healing power of Jesus Christ healed him of the bad temper of his youth, something Donald Trump doesn’t believe is possible. Trump believes that only “pills” can heal Carson of what Trump refers to as a “pathological disease.”
On a CNN interview on Thursday, Trump more than doubled down, he jumped the shark on the candidate in a dead heat with him according to most recent polls.
Trump went off the rails, comparing Ben Carson to — of all things — a “child molester.”
Trump told CNN’s Erin Burnett on “Outfront” on Thursday:
“He said he’s pathological. Somebody says he has pathological disease. Other people said he said in the book — and I haven’t seen it — I know it’s in the book, that he’s got a pathological temper or temperament.
“That’s a big problem. That’s like — you know I could say — they say you don’t cure, as an example child molester. You don’t cure these people. You don’t cure a child molester. There’s no cure for it. Pathological, there’s no cure for that.”
This has got to be, for the first time in the history of American politics, at least on the national stage, one presidential candidate comparing another candidate, albeit a committed Christian who gives credit to God for his redemption and healing, as a “child molester.”
Prediction: If this doesn’t disqualify Donald Trump from the presidency, there is NOTHING he could do to cause his sycophantic supporters to get off of their knees and stop worshiping him.
