Kindly Dr. Ben Carson
Dr. Ben's quote:
" I do not remember this level of scrutiny for one president Barack Obama."
Dr. Carson has a convenient memory, as do his apologists.
Here's a short list of the grinding-down, never-ending scrutiny President Obama endured (and is still enduring -- since Kindly Dr. Carson brought up the falsehood that Mr. Obama's student records are sealed):
From "IF YOU ONLY NEWS:"
* endless questions, investigations, expeditions, and God knows what on his birth certificate.
* investigations on his religious affiliation assertions
* and inquiries made about his sexual orientation
* endless demands for his college records
* investigations into his family, including the father he really never knew, in some “guilt by blood” accusations
That is just a short list and there is more that can be added.
Did Ben deal with any of this bullsh*t? Literally any of it? Of course not.
After making the comment about Obama, Carson then went to list ALL the topics of scrutiny that Obama has been under for the last several years.
The guy just said that Obama has not been scrutinized as much as him but then listed many issues that Obama was or is still being investigated on by the media, which Carson never had to deal with. Then to top it all off, Carson started complaining that the Media has not investigated Obama enough.
It’s like he doesn’t even hear himself speaking anymore.
There really is no way to describe the spluttering eruption of irrationality from Carson sufficiently, so watch the video of it below for the full experience:
Watch Dr. Carson continue to say, no INSIST, he never said he was offered a scholarship to West Point, then watch the video below this one where CARSON SAYS WITH HIS OWN TONGUE AND MOUTH THAT HE WAS OFFERED A SCHOLARSHIP TO WEST POINT. It's clear that Dr. Carson and his campaign staff don't listen to his statements that are documented on videos. But, like a little boy caught being naughty and saying things that aren't true, he blames the media for pointing them out.
How important is this West Point kerfluffle? Not very, I'd say. As someone else pointed out, what he said about climate change, Darwin being influenced by Satan, and then saying the Jews couldn't save themselves because they didn't carry guns to shoot at the German army are much worse because they show a man who is not operating in a rational state of mind. Maybe he once did when he excelled in his career, but he sure doesn't show any rationality now.
