Breaking: Donald Trump Sides With CNN, Calls Ben Carson A Liar

The 2016 GOP Presidential race is heating up big time.

Donald Trump is taking to social media to call Dr. Ben Carson a liar over past statements regarding his troubled youth. Trump said Carson is probably “fabricating” the stories, but it’s “even worse” if true.

Trump’s accusations comes on the heels of a CNN “investigation” into Carson’s childhood that has been widely criticized as poor reporting. After all, absence of evidence is not evidence of absence-especially 50 YEARS LATER!

According to The Hill:

“Donald Trump is attacking Ben Carson, who has risen to become the real estate tycoon’s closest rival in polls for the Republican presidential nomination.

Trump took to Twitter, his preferred medium for lobbing bombs at his political foes, to target the retired neurosurgeon late Thursday and early Friday for remarks on his violent past.

“The Carson story is either a total fabrication or, if true, even worse-trying to hit mother over the head with a hammer or stabbing friend!” Trump tweeted.

The tweet came after a CNN investigation published earlier Thursday called into question some of Carson’s descriptions of past violent actions.

Carson has openly remarked in his book and public statements about “punching a classmate in the face with his hand wrapped around a lock, leaving a bloody three-inch gash in the boy’s forehead; attempting to attack his own mother with a hammer following an argument over clothes; hurling a large rock at a boy,” according to CNN.

CNN followed up by reporting that nine friends, neighbors and classmates who grew up with Carson said they didn’t recall the violence described by the candidate.

“With Ben Carson wanting to hit his mother on head with a hammer, stabb [sic] a friend and Pyramids built for grain storage – don’t people get it?” Trump tweeted Friday.”
