Colin Campbell, Yahoo Finance: Presidential Hopeful Ben Carson Thinks Obama Is a ‘Psychopath’ and America Is Like Nazi Germany - Yahoo Finance
One of Carson’s advisers said Obama looked good and Carson responded by calling the president a “psychopath.”
“Like most psychopaths,” Carson said. “That’s why they’re successful. That’s the way they look. They all look great.”
“On several occasions, I tried to get Carson to concede that his analogy likening the U.S. to Nazi Germany was out of line,” GQ’s Jason Zengerle wrote. “Our longest discussion about the matter came in Jerusalem, in the cafeteria of the Holocaust museum at Yad Vashem. We’d spent the previous ninety minutes touring the museum, followed by Carson entering Yad Vashem’s Hall of Remembrance and, black kippah atop his head, laying a wreath. … Given all this, I asked Carson, did it make him reconsider his analogy?”
Carson again didn’t budge.
“Not at all,” he said. “It makes [the Nazi comparison] even stronger.”
