Dr. Ben Carson is unquestionably one of the brightest men on the planet. Don’t believe me? You try separating conjoined twins at the brain without a road map and tell me how you do.
That said, it’s amazing how a genius can sound like a buffoon when he swims outside his lane.
As you know, Carson is running for president and hasn’t been known for nailing the sundry talking point. During an interview with NBC’s Meet the Press yesterday, we discovered why.
See if you catch it…
Because when you run out of things to say about slavery, abortion is always a good comparison point. Wait, what?! Can someone rewind that please?
“Think about this,” he told “Meet the Press.” “During slavery — and I know that’s one of those words you’re not supposed to say, but I’m saying it — during slavery, a lot of the slave owners thought that they had the right to do whatever they wanted to that slave. Anything that they chose to do. And, you know, what if the abolitionist had said, you know, ‘I don’t believe in slavery. I think it’s wrong. But you guys do whatever you want to do’? Where would we be?”
PRNewserverse, quick question: What’s the worst message point?
- Comparing slavery to abortion
- “I don’t believe in slavery” because in the 21st century, that’s relevant
- The fact that he has tried this before, comparing slavery to Obamacare
We’ll leave the comments open.
