Donald Trump to Ben Carson: You're fired!

Yeah you gotta go.
Courtesy of The Daily Beast:  

Since the former neurosurgeon has taken up the role of working on Donald Trump’s vice presidential team, he has suggested that the candidate may pick a Democratic running mate, dropped she-who-must-not-be-named Sarah Palin as a potential pick and earlier generally questioned a number of the presumptive nominee’s habits from his Twitter use to lack of pragmatism. 

So he was off the VP team in a hurry.

According to sources close to Trump’s campaign, Carson was demoted after Trump specifically wanted him to head up the VP selection team. He submitted names that he thought would be valuable picks and inevitably lost his top spot days later. Carson allegedly called Trump afterwards and was angry that the situation played out like this.

Yeah who could have predicted that the guy who made "You're fired" a slogan, would kick you off his team at the slightest hint of incompetence?

Certainly no way to see that coming.

Sarah Palin on the VP list? Even if it were true, why would anybody leak that before the final decision was made?

    People may guffaw but it wouldn't surprise me at all if Palin was the choice. All blogs and Facebook pages have gone silent. I hope he's prepared for the backlash if he does; it will be YUUUUUGE.

      Keep in mind Ben was the front runner for a very short time, and this could have been Trump being hired to vet VP's for Carson.

      9:11, I'm thinking the same thing. It'll be Trump's big middle finger to the GOP and a signal that he doesn't really want the job.

      I think Donnie fired Ben because Ben dropped Palin from the VP list. I think Donnie wants Sarah on the list.

      Donnie doesn't like to delegate. He wants to do everything himself. I've not doubt he'll be firing Christie for whatever he put him in charge of. Donnie is a control freak that wants to be in charge of everything.

      I'm agreeing with 1:10. Trump is getting freaked out that he just might win this Presidential election thing. After all he said he could shoot somebody on Fifth Avenue and not lose supporters. He's a know nothing and if he really wants to lose, he picks Palin.

      President Obama has gained 10-15 approval points with people who view their ideology as Independent over the past year. Obama has also gained support among Hispanics, women, and people under 30.

      The economy has improved, gas prices are lower, the country has entered a period of stability after the Bush years. These are all good reasons for President Obama’s new popularity. However, the biggest change to the American political landscape over the past year has been the rise of Donald Trump, and no figure in American politics is more the anti-Trump than President Obama.

      As potential voters have witnessed Donald Trump in action, they appreciate Obama more. President Obama is everything that Donald Trump will never be, and voters are noticing the difference. The demographics that are fueling Obama’s rising approval rating should be a cause for alarm in the Republican Party. Independents, women, people under 30, and Hispanics are all groups that Trump has turned off.

      Democrats have a powerful political weapon in the office, and Obama’s popularity suggests that he is the trump card that could hand the Republicans a crushing defeat in November.

In the general he'll pivot to the middle to try to woo Hillary voters, but his back room will be full of old school wall street suits. He's disgusting, but at least he's predictable.

    off topic

    Were Bristol and Sarah getting ready for commercial fishing season? Maybe this is why they haven't been blogging lately?

    Todd might still be all stove up after the "snowmachine accident" or whatever it was that put him in the hospital.

    Track might be busy getting ready for his trial, and his GF is knocked up also too I hear. So he may be less than good help too.

    Then there is Bristol's new baby daddy. Not sure how much help he could be commercial fishing. Is noodling for salmon allowed for commercial fishing? How about chootin' 'em?

    So between no tv show, no speeches,and most importantly- SarahPAC shriveling on the vine; maybe both Sarah and Bristol have to be rill fishpickers this year.

    Maybe they can make a tv show about it?

    Maybe Josh Duggar could make an appearance and sell the Palins a used truck to pull their boat and trailer?

    Who gave Donald Trump the bright idea that Ben Carson was familiar with politics that he would be able to pick a good vice presidential candidate for Trump? Carson didn't know diddly squat and that didn't stop him from running for president. His goofy answers, such as the pyramids were build to store grain, should have been a tip off that Carson didn't operate at full horsepower.

      Trump knows about as much, and look where his millions have gotten him. I'm sure Donny thought having a real live black "SURGEON" in his camp would make it look like he 'loves blacks, and Hillary has treated them horribly," right? And remember, Trump's standard for liking someone is 1: if they are male, will they bow to my wishes, and 2: if they are female, are they slim enough and busty enough and young enough to enter one of his T&A shows. Brains matter in neither instance. After all, when you have an IQ around 100, you sure don't want to be around MENSA intellects. I think that why he tolerates the Tundra Twit...she is passably attractive, and even dumber than he is, plus she has 'hot' daughters.

    Trump recently bragged that the guy who vetted Palin would be vetting Trump's VP picks. Are you kidding? Did that guy even Google the name Sarah Palin? At that time, she was involved up to her eyeballs in Troopergate. But I do have to hand it to Sarah. Taking charge of Trig, and using his DS as a sign of her strong right to life stand was a brilliant move on Sarah's part. The problem was dragging Trig around the campaign for two months. Even McCain doubted that Sarah gave birth to Trig after they were together for a few days, but he stuck with her.

      McCain knew about the birth hoax. And it wasn't Sarah's idea to pull the fake birth as the right to life card. It was Paxton and her lawyer Van what's his name who cooked up that stuff. Sarah just went along for the ride. So no credit is due to Sarah for anything but being a pathological liar, a grifting political whore and a piece of shit mother.

    He got so mad at Fox News that he skipped one of their debates in January and replaced his appearance there with a fundraiser for our wounded warriors in Iowa.

    Does anyone recall Trump's televised fundraiser for veterans? He did want to skip debates. Also, didn't his greatness fundraising for Vets have to do with Sarah Palin and her son Track Palin?

    What happened to the money?

    He could come out now and write them a personal check of double the amount as an apology jesture.
