It’s not a good thing for Ben Carson when Donald Trump, his once closest ally in the vast Republican field for the presidency, blasts him and throws him under the bus for being the pathological lair that he is.
While appearing on the O’Reilly Factor on Fox News, Trump, who is neck in neck with Carson is latest polls, said the retired neurosurgeon should take pills for a “pathological disease” in order to get better:
When you suffer from pathological disease, you’re not really getting better unless you start taking pills and things. Do you think that’s the right temperament to be president? I don’t think so.
Trump, however, defended Carson against the witch-hunt media frenzy surrounding his many lies which have brought down his poll numbers and cast a dark cloud over his campaign, but reiterated that Carson is unfit to be president because of it:
I don’t think it’s small ball if you have somebody that admits that he suffers from pathological disease. You don’t get better. If it’s in your stream, it’s in your stream.
Carson seems to suffer from more than just pathological lying. Given his long history of saying outrageously un-factual fabrications, one might think he’s downright delusional. And, considering the things he has hanging on the walls of his house (including a painting of him and Jesus), one might think he suffers from a severe case of narcissism.
The two go hand-in-hand, and even someone as clueless as Donald Trump can see that. Republicans have been cooing over Carson for his calm, kind demeanor yet somehow overlook the fact he is a certifiable nut-job. Now that his many lies have finally caught up to him, people are starting to tune out. Maybe now he’ll drop out and start taking his meds.
