Ben Carson Officially Endorses Donald Trump, Who Once Compared Him To A Child Molester

As indicated last night, Ben Carson is now joining Chris Christie in Donald Trump’s cabal of hostages, and has released his official endorsement.

Our country is at a crossroads and in the midst of a moral crisis. We must be careful not to continue our current path, which is littered with uncertainty at best and ruination at worst. We can make changes to our system and that change starts now with, “We the People.”

We can have disagreements, but it is critical that we not allow those disagreements to divide us as a party or as a country.

It is with that in mind that I endorse Donald Trump for President. I have known Donald for many years. He is a successful businessman who has built a recognizable global brand that no one can question. His experience as a businessman is exactly what we need to move our economic engine in the right direction and empower those who have been left out of the American dream for far too long.

With our support, I am sure that we can help restore America’s values and faith.

I know there will be some who want to underscore our differences and others will wish to return to statements he has made about me in the past, but that is politics. As a man of faith, all is forgiven and we have moved beyond the past, as the future is now.

Join me in supporting and rallying around the only candidate the GOP has that can defeat Hillary Clinton in 2016 and return America to that shining city on a hill.

Judging by this endorsement, we can clearly assume that Ben Carson is also endorsing Trump’s characterization of his temper as a “very serious, pathological disease,” and saying “as an example: child molesting. 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.”  He’s probably also endorsing Trump’s suggestion that his conversion and religious faith was all a lie! Right? Because someone who was going to turn our country into a shining city on a hill would never, ever say something that was untrue.

At the press conference announcing this endorsement at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club (which, notably, graciously allows Black people and Jewish people to join), Carson stated that “He’s actually a very intelligent man who cares deeply about America. There’s two different Donald Trumps. There’s the one you see on stage and the one that’s very cerebral, sits there and considers things very carefully.”

I’m actually not so sure that’s a compliment, Ben! I suppose it’s one thing if all that bile just gushes forth from his gaping maw constantly and it’s something he cannot help, but if he has actually put thought into the things he’s said out loud, in public…well, I can’t tell if it’s just dopier or even more malicious, but I’m thinking it’s a combination of both.

As for Trump being the only one who can beat Hillary Clinton? Not so much. Quite frankly I’m very relieved that Rubio has no shot at the candidacy anymore, as polls show he’d come the closest to being able to win. Here is what state polls (plus reliably red and blue states) are showing would be the outcome if the election were held this month.

And he’d lose even worse to Bernie Sanders (309-229). But sure, Carson, whatever you say!
