Hey, did you hear about the crazy 95 minute harangue by Donald Trump the other night? In it, Trump attacked everybody, but he especially had some choice words to say about Ben Carson, comparing him to a child molester.
Crazy, yea I know. Trump thought that because Carson mentioned in one of his books that he was pathologically violent when he was a teenager, Trump thought that was the same as being a child molester!
The soft-spoken Carson was not going to stand up to Trump, so Carly Fiorina decided to do it for him.
“Donald, sorry, I’ve got to interrupt again,” she wrote, referencing Trump’s protestations that she ‘interrupts everybody’ during the most recent GOP debate.
“You would know something about pathological. How was that meeting with Putin? Or Wharton? Or your self funded campaign? Anyone can turn a multi-million dollar inheritance into more money, but all the money in the world won’t make you as smart as Ben Carson.”
Fiorina’s post garnered more than 27,000 times. Trump responded in a series of five tweets on his Twitter account, telling Fiorina to apologize repeatedly.
“Carly, not just you, I also told Gov. Kasich to “let Jeb talk, give him a chance” because Kasich was constantly cutting in,” he wrote.
Less than a minute later, he wrote “Carly—I did graduate from Wharton and did very well. Who is your fact checker? Will you apologize?”
“Ben Carson said in his own book that he has a pathological temper (and) pathological disease. I didn’t say it, he did. Apology?”
“I only said I was on (“60 Minutes”) four weeks ago with Putin—never said I was in Green Room. Separate pieces—great ratings!”
“(Fiorina) had to inject herself into my factual statements concerning Ben Carson in order to breathe life into her failing campaign!”
