Well, folks – the filters are starting to get clogged up again with body parts from the advocates of The Darnold versus those of Dr. Jonas Sulk. Time to give them a good blowing out.
Masks ON! Ready? Let’s go!
WHAT? Trump Says Ben Carson is Sort of Like a Child Molester!

On CNN today, Donald Trump had another moment that is sure to haunt news and social media for days, when he made a comparison between Dr. Ben Carson and child molesters:
He said he’s pathological, somebody said he’s got pathological disease, other people said he said in the book, I haven’t seen it but I know it’s in the book that he’s got a pathological temper or temperament. That’s a big problem because you don’t cure that. That’s like, you know, I could say, they say you don’t cure, as an example, child molester. 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.
Trump added “I’m not saying anything, I’m not saying anything other than pathological is a very serious disease,” but he was arguably well past the point of no return by then. Trump supporter Jeffrey Lord was on later to discuss the comment and said the Trump just “reached out for something that he thought was pathological.”
Yes, well .. reach better, guy. When a CNBC moderator made a comic book comparison with Trump, the Donald and his fans were outraged. Imagine if that moderator had said this about Trump.
The option they are giving us is that either Trump is too dumb to know comparing pediatric brain surgeon Dr. Carson to a child molester would be outrageous and go viral, or he knew that’s exactly what would happen and maliciously made the comparison. That’s what we’re left with. Dumb or malicious.
Unless you want to chose both.
I’m going out on a limb here and saying that “markomalley” is on Dr. Sulk’s team.
…if undeniably accurate..
I suspect Trump did not accidentally let this slip. He doesn’t typically make such errors.
A shot over the bow?
And just to show that even Freepers can stumble across a clue of two:
Well if Carson himself said he’s pathological then Trump is right, that’s something very serious. I have no idea if Carson said he was though, but I will say I don’t like how Carson talks. He seems a little too devoid of emotion which at least to me puts up some red flags.
The Darnold’s acolytes are not moved :
More people having a sexual orgasm over a perceived Trump remark. Carson talked about his pathological anger in, “Gifted Hands”. NO PEDOPHILIA, and Trump didn’t say that

No one has been a more sneering serial violator of Ronald Reagan’s 11th Commandment (“Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican”) than Trump. From his early salvo at John McCain (“He’s a war hero ‘cause he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured”), which shocked the punditry but did him no harm with conservatives, he has extended the perimeter of attack, going after Carly Fiorina for her face and voice, saying that Rand Paul inherited a bad gene from his libertarian father, dumping on pollster Frank Luntz as a “low-class slob,” and the hits just keep on coming. Yes, he has slagged entire peoples (Mexicans, Muslims), but such broad stereotyping is becoming standard Republican Party sheet music. It is the bitching contempt with which he treats anyone on his own partisan side who vexes his prickly highness, such as Fox News’s Megyn Kelly, that is without parallel in politics. That he not only has gotten away with it but has become emboldened with each flare-up attests to the intestinal rot of discipline and cohesion in the G.O.P. ever since the Tea Party boarded ship. The lack of respect Trump has for the party reflects the lack of respect it has for itself, and there’s no referee to stop this free-for-all. Never mind that the majority of Trump’s schoolyard taunts aren’t witty or funny and often border on the subliterate, they succeed in delivering electric shocks and uncovering weak spots, occasionally hitting on something so obvious that it somehow managed to be overlooked by our overpaid Beltway soothsayers.
