Worst surrogate ever: He was ‘talking out out loud’ not ‘thinking’
Ben Carson is the worst surrogate in the history of surrogates. His defense of Trump’s racist remarks are mind-boggling.
“He was probably talking out loud rather than thinking. That’s not a good thing to do when everything you say is going to be analyzed,” Carson told Politico in an interview.
The presumptive GOP nominee has offered no apology for the remarks, which were condemned by many in his own party as wildly inappropriate at best and racist at worst. But Carson said Trump told him during a private meeting at Trump Tower that he thought the attacks indeed were a mistake.
“He fully recognizes that that was not the right thing to say,” Carson told Politico.
