What’s shocking about Chuck Todd‘s interview this morning with GOP Presidential frontrunner Dr. Ben Carson is not that Carson compared abortion to slavery, or wants to prevent women from having access to abortions, or said all sane people should have access to any weapon they can get their hands on, or defended his comment about how the Holocaust could have been prevented if Jews had guns.
It’s that he’s said all of this before and yet there are still people in this country who think he’s qualified to be the President.
As crazy as you think he is right now, he’ll find a way to be even crazier tomorrow. He’s beating Donald Trump at his own game. The top of the GOP ticket right now is a battle between dumb and dumber.
You don’t have to love Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders to recognize they belong to the only major party catering to reasonable adults. But the U.S. is full of idiots who vote, and people like Carson are banking on them.
