“Pray for him.”
That’s 2016 GOP Presidential hopeful Ben Carson’s response to fellow White House contender and real estate mogul Donald Trump’s scathing attack on Carson.
Speaking in Iowa for over an hour and a half Thursday night, Trump compared Carson to a child molester while calling Iowa voters “stupid.”
According to MSN:
“U.S. presidential candidate Ben Carson recommended praying for rival Donald Trump after the real-estate mogul and television personality, in a 95-minute rant in Iowa, likening him to a child molester, Carson’s business manager said on Friday.
“When I spoke with Dr. Carson about this yesterday how we should respond, you know he was so sad about it. He said: “Pray for him.” He feels sorry for him because he really likes Mr. Trump,” Armstrong Williams, who often acts as Carson’s surrogate in the media, told CNN.
“To see him just imploding before our very eyes – it’s just sad to watch,” Williams said.”
The article notes Trump’s controversial comments regarding Carson.
Speaking in Iowa on Thursday evening, Trump, a leading contender for the Republican nomination in the 2016 presidential election, cast doubt on Carson’s oft-reported story of lunging at someone with a hunting knife as a child, an episode that Carson says led him to his Christian faith.
He said the incident showed Carson had a “pathological” temper.
“If you’re pathological, there’s no cure for that,” Trump said. “If you’re a child molester, there’s no cure. They can’t stop you…How stupid are the people of Iowa? How stupid are the people of the country to believe that crap?”
