Ben Carson thinks the media is against him. The man is running for president and he expects the media to give him a free pass by ignoring his inconsistent statements about his past. Any questions by the media pointing out his lies and falsehoods are immediately shut down by Carson himself, and the usual Republican talking-points attacking the “mainstream media,” follows. Attacking the media plays well with his right-wing, and usually earns Carson more good favor among his Republican base.
Carson, convinced that he is the only presidential candidate ever to be vetted by the press, issued a challenge to the media – to find another president, namely President Obama, who went through the vetting process the way he is.
“If you could find me where that has happened with someone else, I’ll take that statement back,” Carson said, referring to his claim that Obama was not vetted.
Trevor Noah from Comedy Central took him up on that challenge.
