Throughout the 2016 Republican presidential primary, the Republican establishment has been accused of a multitude of things, some ridiculous, others terrifyingly true.
Former GOP contender Dr. Ben Carson recently came forward and accused the establishment of trying to choose which candidate would be the nominee, something that the American people aren’t too happy about.
“I think that they think they’re fair, but no, I don’t think so,” Carson stated, according to The Hill. “I think they try to pick and choose who the candidate should be. They focus attention and help to certain people. Other people, they try to ignore.”
Well, Dr. Carson, welcome to politics and the power of The Establishment! This has been going on for awhile now, where have you been? Are you just waking up, now?
The Republican National Committee has waffled back and forth on the issue of whether or not billionaire businessman Donald Trump would be “allowed” to be the party’s nominee. Some establishment figures have said they will support him, but others have indicated that at a contested convention they would abandon him and nominate someone they like.
Here is Dr. Carson’s Tweet on Twitter:
We as a nation can not allow our political differences to divide us and lead to acts of aggression and strife. A house divided cannot stand.
