Look, I think Dr. Ben Carson is a nice man and all, but I am just not a fan. If he wins the nomination, naturally, I would support his bid for the Presidency. To be as open minded as to select Trump as a possible running mate? WOW. Not that I think The Donald would settle for anything less than top dog, but still:
“I have had a chance to associate with [Trump] now that I have moved down to Florida,” Carson said. “He’s a very smart guy, and he is a fun guy. So, I will leave it at that.”
Cavuto would not let the former neurosurgeon off the hook that easily and followed up, asking him, “so you might?”–to which Carson’s final word was: “All things are possible. Absolutely.”
“There is a learning curve,” Carson acknowledged. “I have learned how to tone it down a little bit, so that people can actually hear what I’m saying, and not just focus on the words, but that’s a skill people learn with the course of time,” he added.
That said, one thing Carson appreciates about Trump is his plain-spokenness, which does seem to be his appeal among potential voters.
“There’s no question that we are in the process in this country of giving away all of our values and principles for the sake of political correctness,” Carson said.
When asked about whether Trump’s media attention was pulling all the oxygen out of the room for the other candidates, he responded: “I would say that there’s a whole lot of oxygen in the room, and we need to hear everybody.” He added: “We need to discuss these things openly.”
Carson believes that one positive aspect of Trump’s controversial remarks concerning illegal immigration is that they have put more focus from the public on the issue.
So much truth. Donald Trump is willing to say the hard things that no one else will. He is willing to offend, and willing to do what it takes, because he believes America needs to hear it. He believes America can be great again, because she can be. We just need to take a hard line stance at the things that are hurting us and cut them all off. Period.
