I’m crushed. Next you’ll be telling me he wasn’t robbed at gunpoint at a Popeye’s organization.

Dr. Carson, at this point, I think you’re an incompetent doctor and a pathological liar as it seems that almost everything in your past was made up.

Carson: “I lied. Do you think that makes me a liar?”

“Do you think I’m a pathological liar, like CNN does, or do you think I’m an honest person?”

Liars often lie in an attempt to get people to like them.

True. He has no policies, his platform is content free, He’s not reaching to blacks, by his own admission he doesn’t know anything about Cuban-American relations, but wait until he’s asked on the push to modify EB-5 visas (Google it), he’ll have to go into sleep mode. Or check Google before he responds.

This headline doesn’t really deliver. That said…

“The names I used for instance are fictitious names because I don’t want to bring people into something like this because I know what you guys do to their lives‎.”

I get the feeling Carson thinks this will make those people infamous, with paparazzi constantly hounding them. At most, they’ll ask them a question one time (if they can corroborate it). If they don’t corroborate it, they might get book deals. Hell, they may want that type of fame. Look at how willing the former classmates were to speak out.

You guys know, of course, that Egypt has a branch of Johns Hopkins under one of the Pyramids.

Since it seems he’s cleverly frustrated any attempt by those awful journalists to find out if these stories are true in the quaint, old-fashioned sense of actually having happened, I’m offering a million bucks to anyone who can come forward and corroborate any of these exciting tales he spins.* That should take the sting out of the press ruining your life. You don’t have to have a story that can account for all the different versions he’s told; I’m not asking for miracles here. Just something vaguely similar in its general outlines.

*availability of prize money contingent on its not being claimed.

The problem I’m having is that he clearly wasn’t an incompetent doctor, and that’s what makes this stuff he does baffling - how are these things both true at the same time?

What kind of narcissist LIES in his own biography?

That would be YES!

“If you choose to believe that I’m incapable of these acts, I guess that’s kind of a compliment to me,” he later added.

I had an unfortunate neighbor once that other neighbors viciously (and quite mistakenly) gossiped about as being a pedophile. All because the kids in the area liked playing in his yard and with his dogs.
 "Those kids spend too much time over there, something's suspicious."
However, just like Ben Carson, he took their malicious gossip as a compliment.


***Um, not.***
