Just a day before the all important primaries in Ohio and Florida, Ben Carson does an interview with Newsmax TV on the “Steve Malzberg Show” saying that he really liked Kasich and Rubio but that he did not see how they had a path to winning. Really Ben? Do you really think the timing of that admission was a good move for the Trump campaign that just offered you an advisory position in a possible new Donald Trump administration?
How can someone endorsing one of the most anti-establishment candidates in decades just admit their first choices really were obvious establishment puppets like John Kasich and Marco Rubio? That just does not compute. He wants to be an adviser to a possible future President but demonstrated he lacks the judgement necessary to be a reliable asset. Or is he just sly as a fox? When Ben Carson was first being vetted, Trump’s first impression of this man did not seem to be a good one and many conservative voters agreed. Were the first serious impressions of him valid as they often are?
The best thing that Ben Carson said that he did not in some way later take back during this interview was that he is convinced that Donald Trump really does love America. Well that’s nice at least.
Although Carson did at first defend Trump regarding being unfairly blamed for violent protests and commented that he believes that the tactics being used are right out of the pages of a Progressive playbook. However, later in the interview, he referred to Donald Trump’s handling of protesters as being that of just a “Showman” and goes onto even negatively compare Donald Trump to Barack Obama.
His (Obama’s) colors were demonstrated but nobody bothered to look at them.
With friends like this, who needs another mole? Is Carson’s endorsement really a good thing at all? He believes Trump will be successful if he wins the White House but he contends that he will be successful because Trump will surround himself with very good people. Okay, how should one take that? Not exactly an overwhelmingly enthusiastic opinion of Donald Trump himself. Sure, great leaders must have the ability to pick the best people for various jobs but Carson’s answers fell flat of being positive in many respects.
Reading between the lines of Ben Carson’s responses and the potentially damaging timing of admitting his first choices were actually the Governor of Ohio and a US Senator of Florida right before the Ohio and Florida primaries is very disturbing at best.
Should Ben Carson be a potential adviser to a possible future President Trump? We can only hope that The Donald tells him before he even starts………..You’re Fired!
