Ben Carson may be the best neurosurgeon in the world, but he exposes his naivete with the answer to Chris Wallace's question. That said, Hillary Clinton's surrogates would do well to understand how Trumps surrogates effectively stay on the offensive irrespective of the topic.
Chris Wallace asks Ben Carson the pertinent question
Chris Wallace asked Ben Carson a question that many already know the answer to without any doubt. Is Carson just a Trump prop?
Chris Wallace: Dr. Carson, Trump has a Hispanic advisory council. But after his hardline speech on immigration this week, several members of that council quit. Here's one of them.
Fmr. Trump advisor Jacob Monty video clip: It was not a Republican speech. It was not a compassionate speech. I was very disappointed and I’m not going to be part of that.
Chris Wallace: Question: Do you worry.
Ben Carson: Do you know what I would say?
Chris Wallace: Do you worry that you're being used as a prop and the support of Donald Trump will end up hurting your credibility in the black community?
Ben Carson: It's not about me. It’s long time ago. It’s about our nation.
Carson then immediately changed the subject and attacked President Bill Clinton's past statements on 'illegal aliens' and deportation, which was not germane to the conversation. Bill Clinton is not running for President, Hillary is.
It is high time that the media realizes that judging Hillary Clinton on her husband's policies that she was not a party of borders on sexism and misogyny. Hillary is not a reflection of her husband. She stands on
My surprise and disgust continue because the Hillary Clinton campaign seems to leave too much unanswered. It is necessary for her to answer any of the plethoras of misinformation directly. As well there should be an army of her surrogates out there setting the record straight, not on standard talking points, but on much more. More importantly, where is the offensive on Trump University, fraternization with mob characters, and much more.
