Of all people, Bernie Sanders has come to Ben Carson’s defense in the wake of Politico’s non-story about whether Carson was offered a scholarship by a school he wasn’t interested in attending which Ross thoroughly dissected this morning.
While it’s clear Sanders doesn’t agree with Carson’s policy ideas he told Chuck Todd on Meet the Press yesterday:
I think it might be a better idea, I know it’s a crazy idea, but maybe we focus on the issues impacting the American people and what candidates are saying, rather than just spending so much time exploring their lives of 30 or 40 years ago. And I think the reason that so many people are turned off to the political process has a lot to do with the fact that we’re not talking about the real issues impacting real people.
Well said, Bernie. Now if only Donald Trump felt the same way. In response to the Politico story, Trump tweeted, “WOW! One of many lies by Ben Carson! Big story.”
I know Trump wants to win the nomination, but it’s sad to see him become a tool for the mainstream media. What else can you expect of someone who isn’t and never has been a conservative?
