Ben Carson just picked a side – even Donald didn’t see it coming!
When President Donald Trump told the depressing truth about Baltimore, the backlash was immediate.
Trump called out Elijah Cummings and his district, and many unearthed comments proved him right.
And Ben Carson went to Baltimore to check out the situation.
He tried to do a tour with Cummings, who was unfortunately “unavailable.” How unfortunate.
So Carson gave his diagnosis, and it could have only come from a precise medical doctor. This is what he said. From CNN:
“It’s sort of like if you have a patient who has cancer. You can dress them up, and put a nice suit on them, and you can try to ignore it, but that cancer is going to have a devastating effect.
You have to be willing to address that issue if you are ever going to solve it.”
What’s that psychiatrists always say? You have to admit you have a problem before you can fix it.
And the good doctor, in our opinion, is right about Elijah Cummings’ district, which Trump called a “very dangerous and filthy place.”
If we’re going to clean it up, we have to acknowledge that it DOES have major issues.
In fact, Carson was hesitant to send kids he operated on back to East and West Baltimore, saying “there were rats and roaches and mice and ticks.”
Yeah, sounds like a problem.
Carson recently made it plain that President Trump was perfectly “willing to work with” the people of Baltimore to repair the damage.
Carson then made a touching entreaty to the Commander-in-Chief:
“I would like for the President to actually express his heart to the people the way he has expressed it to me.
I think sometimes, he feels that he’s going to be treated so hostilely that he says, ‘Well maybe, I don’t even want to go there.'”
Of course that’s how he feels!
Trump is under constant scrutiny and even outright attack, so he always has to play on the defensive.
If his critics would just lay off him, and understand him to be the caring and great leader Carson knows him to be … well, everything would get better. Right?
