Carson: Criticizing Trump On McCain ‘Petty’
Put Ben Carson next to Ted Cruz in the Donald Trump column.
“For us to get caught up in a controversy of, well, ‘What did Donald Trump mean when he said that?’ — It just seems so petty to me,” Carson said to a group of reporters in Arlington, Virginia according to the Washington Post.
He added that he didn’t find the comments disqualifying. “I’m not sure from listening to what he said that he think that Mr. McCain is not a hero. He has repeatedly said yes, he is a hero, so I don’t know where that comes from that he’s disqualified.”
Earlier in the week, Carson hedged on whether or not he considered McCain a war hero, saying it “depends on your definition of a war hero.”
