The Gloves Are Off - Trump’s Unhinged Attacks On Carson
Alternate headline: Get your popcorn ready, sit back, and watch the insanity that passes for GOP presidential politics
Donald Trump just released quite the video attacking his closest rival for the driver’s seat in the clown car, Ben Carson. I really don’t know how to describe it. Unhinged? Insane? Just plain mean? Judge for yourself (sorry for the click through — if anyone knows how to embed instagram videos into a post please let me know)
And yesterday, Donald Trump at a rally in Iowa launched vicious attacks against Carson, by questioning his religious authenticity, calling him pathological, comparing him to a child molester, and by reenacting Carson’s knife attack on his mother on stage.
Trump said Carson has a “pathological disease” with no cure, comparing it to the incurable mental conditions of child molesters.
“A child molester, there’s no cure for that,” Trump said. “If you’re a child molester, there’s no cure. They can’t stop you. Pathological? There’s no cure.”
With his voice growing louder and louder, Trump questioned what sort of person would attack his mother. He questioned how a belt buckle could stop a blade, stepping away from the podium to demonstrate how such an attack might happen and how his own belt buckle wouldn’t stay in place long enough to stop a knife.
“Anybody have a knife?” Trump asked the audience, which was screened by Secret Service agents who began protecting him this week. “You want to try it on me?”
