Ben Carson is the worst surrogate who ever lived.

In an interview with The Hill‘s Jonathan Swan,which aired Friday afternoon on Facebook live, the Trump supporter and retired neurosurgeon said that Americans didn’t want the brand of calm, rational leadership that he said he had been offering during his failed presidential run. But that was all right, he noted.

The nation was in what he called a “WWE stage” right now — that is, angry and hungry for spectacle. “It’s not a matter of what they need, it’s a matter of what they want right now.”

Americans were “probably not going to be persuaded by calm, rational, logical arguments.” He added: “They want loud, brash, I’m-gonna-get-it-done, and that’s okay.”
