Ben Carson, the former pediatric neurosurgeon who dropped out of the Republican presidential race last week, endorsed Donald Trump on Friday, praising his "guts" and "energy."
"There are two different Donald Trumps," Carson said at the billionaire's Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida. "There's the one you see on the stage and there's the one who is very cerebral, sits there and considers things very carefully. You can have a very good conversation with him. That's the Donald Trump that you're going to start seeing more and more of."
Well if there ARE two Donald Trumps they are both arrogant assholes.
I felt like I was watching one of those videos where the terrorists make their captive denounce America as the "great Satan" before they cut his head off on live TV.
I have no idea how Trump gets these former outspoken critics of his to trade what's left of their dignity for a few minutes on the stage with him, but at this point he seems to have it down to a science.
Chris Christie has campaign debt and legal problems on the horizon so of course he was for sale.
But Ben Carson just left the campaign trail with millions of unused money in his coffers and reputation for integrity. I have no idea what Trump could offer him that convinced him to come aboard the Trump Train to disaster, but he did.
I think if we have learned anything this campaign season it is that virtually none of these GOP candidates have an ounce of integrity.
Not that most of us did not already know that of course.
