Uh, say what? Donald Trump blasted his fellow Republican presidential candidate, Ben Carson, on Nov. 12. The Donald said that Ben’s ‘pathological’ behaviors are ‘sick’ and they’re just like those of a ‘child molester!’
The gloves are off between Donald Trump, 69, and Ben Carson, 64. The feud between these two Republican presidential candidates was kicked into high gear, courtesy of The Donald. The former Celebrity Apprentice star took aim at his rival and called him a ‘sick puppy!’
While speaking to supporters in Fort Dodge, Iowa on Nov. 12, Donald laid into Ben in an angry tirade, reports Mediaite Donald pointed out how in Ben’s autobiography, Gifted Hands, the neurosurgeon claimed his violent behavior as a youth was due to a “pathological temper.” Because of this claim, Donald doesn’t think Ben is qualified to be president!
“If you’re pathological, there’s no cure for that, folks. There’s no cure for that,” Donald told the audience. He then compared Ben’s pathological temper to child abuse, saying “If you’re a child molester, a sick puppy, you’re a child molester, there’s no cure for that.”
Donald also went after Ben for reportedly lying about his history. Ben claimed he lunged at his friend with a knife, according to the Wall Street Journal. Ben claims that he tried to stab someone when he was a teen, but that his knife hit his friend’s belt buckle. “Give me a break,” Donald said while sneering, showing off his own belt buckle.
This wasn’t the only time that Donald compared Ben to a child molester. While speaking to CNN‘s Erin Burnett, Donald said, “It’s in the book that he’s got a pathological temper. That’s a big problem because you don’t cure that … as an example: child molesting. You don’t cure these people. You don’t cure a child molester. There’s no cure for it. Pathological, there’s no cure for that.”
Ben responded by saying Donald didn’t understand the meaning of the word “pathological,” reports CNN. While speaking to reporters in South Carolina, Ben said “I’m hopeful [Donald’s] that his advisers will help him to understand the word pathological and know that that does not connote incurable. It simply describes something that is highly abnormal and something that fortunately I’ve been able to be delivered from for half a century now.”
