Ben Carson Shames CNN Anchor Who Tried To Besmirch Him On Live TV
CNN probed into Ben Carson’s miscreant childhood past in an attempt to discredit his rags-to-riches transformation.
Camerota: She and another reporter went back and did talk to your elementary school friends, as well as your junior high school friends.
Carson: Which elementary school friends?
Camerota: I believe it’s all laid out actually on CNN.com.
Carson: No, I saw your article, I didn’t see any elementary school friends there.
Camerota: They…they say that they…
Carson: This is a bunch of lies! That’s just what it it is. It’s is a bunch of lies.
Carson called out Alisyn Camerota and the media for their diverting tactics.
One of the tactics that is used by you guys in the media, particularly when someone is doing very well, is ‘let’s find a way to get them distracted, and get all the people distracted so that we can get away from the real issues.’
Camerota backtracked, attempting to call the process vetting. But Carson called out the glaring double standard.
Camerota: You know it well, just from the short time you’ve been involved in vetting. Campaigns…
Carson: Is that what was done with this current president? Is that what you guys did with him?
Camerota: Yes, as a matter of fact.
Carson: No you did not! Give me a break.
Camerota: President Obama’s autobiography Dreams of My Father was also vetted. You will recall Dr. Carson…
Carson: Give me a break! Haha! Are you kidding me? The so-called vetting that you all did with President Obama doesn’t even come close, doesn’t even come close to what you guys are trying to do in my case.
Carson’s life story is a big part of his appeal as a candidate. If CNN can make it seem like a ruse, they can remove the threat that a black conservative poses to the Democrat Party.
If you choose not to believe it, if it doesn’t fit the narrative that you want, that’s fine, OK? Let’s let the American people decide.
