When Dr. Ben Carson endorsed Donald Trump last week, it didn't exactly come as a surprise, but in the wake of his public embrace, a few of Carson supporters have questioned why the good doctor would be so welcoming to someone who basically insinuated, at one point, that Carson miiiiight be a sexual deviant.
Carson seems to think he addressed that in his endorsement speech, telling people that there are really "two Donald Trumps" and that the boisterous one who encourages supporters to take on protesters at his rallies and holds extreme policy positions is merely the public Donald Trump. The private Donald Trump is much more thoughtful and meticulous. Or so says Dr. Ben Carson, assuring his own supporters that even Donald doesn't believe some of the things he says.
“I needed to know that he could listen to other people, that he could change his opinions, and that some of the more outlandish things that he’s said, that he didn’t really believe those things,” Carson said.
