Wait, there are TWO of them now? Ben Carson endorsed Donald Trump on March 11 and while backing his ex-rival, he said there are ‘two Donald Trumps.’ Voters mocked Ben for supporting ‘a racist and a bigot’ while others feared that Trump is multiplying like ‘Gremlins’! Click to see.
Ben Carson, 64, is a retired neurosurgeon but he might want to make an appointment with an optometrist. He’s seeing double! While throwing his support behind his former Republican rival, Donald Trump, 69, Ben said there are two Trumps. Oh now! That sent social media into a political frenzy!
“There [are] two different Donald Trumps,” Ben said during his March 11 press conference, according to CNN. “There’s the one you see on stage and the one that’s very cerebral, sits there and considers things very carefully. You can have a really good conversation with him. That’s the Donald Trump you’re going to start see more and more of right now.”
Donald and Ben must have had a really good conversation since Trump once compared Ben’s lying to being just like a child molester. Ben admitted he buried the hatchet with Trump — probably after bonding over screwing up their cues during the Feb. 6 debate. While Ben is ready to forgive and forget, Twitter wasn’t so kind to him for his “two Trumps” comment. The best thing to go with political memes? Unlimited and ad-free music (which you can get here.)
“The first is a clueless narcissist who loves only himself,” one Twitter user wrote. “The other is a racist bigot.” Yikes! Another user said “Just what we need – a two faced president.” Other users mocked Ben by photoshopping him as Trump No. 2, while another said Donald’s twin was actually Jar Jar Binks. Weird.
One user was worried that Donald was reproducing like the Mogwai from the movie, Gremlins. (Though, John Glover’s character, “Daniel Clamp,” in Gremlins 2: The New Batch was a Donald Trump parody, per the New York Post. So, that comparison is not far off the mark.)
Ben Carson says there are two Donald Trumps. Personally, I think one Donald Trump is plenty, thanks.

When Ben and Donald squashed their beef, was it over a nice lunch? Ben said he looks at “the fruit salad” of someone’s life when it comes to judging them. While some might think Donald is completely bananas, others mocked Ben for this other ridiculous statement.
Are you scared to death that there might be “two Donald Trumps,” HollywoodLifers? Or are you ready to vote for one of them?
