Ted Cruz and Ben Carson Held a Secret Meeting in a Closet: ‘It Didn’t Go Well’
What if Ted Cruz and Ben Carson secretly went into a closet together and spent a half hour in there?
I’m just askin’. Because this actually did happen. And only these two manly Republican men know what went down in that fateful closeted meeting.
We can report, however, that both men subsequently came out of the closet.
The two Republican candidates for president convened for a mano-a-mano meeting in an actual closet in an attempt to smooth over Carson’s allegations of “dirty tricks” on the night of the Iowa caucuses, according to a report from The Daily Beast.
But the meeting called by Cruz apparently didn’t go well, and ended with Carson concluding the two men would just have to “agree to disagree.”
The men spoke for nearly a half hour, according to an unnamed Republican operative who saw the meeting, which ran over into Carson’s allotted speaking time at the Conservative Review convention. An unnamed source close to Carson’s campaign told The Daily Beast that Carson had agreed to a 5-minute, off-the-record meeting before the convention.
