Here's your kinder, gentler version of Donald Trump over at Faux "news." Fox's Neil Cavuto invited on wingnut Dr. Ben Carson to join the crowd over there for a little more fearmongering over the Ebola virus. Like Trump, Carson did not want to see these American doctors allowed back into the United States for treatment, and he upped the stupid to eleven by suggesting that some terrorist might pay a lab worker a million dollars for some Ebola-tainted urine.
CARSON: So if there were a container of contaminated urine, and somehow it managed to find its way to someplace a lot of damage could be done.
CAVUTO: Now, that would be a stretch for the series of events to make that contagious, or would it?
CARSON: Well, again I say you always have to guard for the worst case scenario. So, you know, someone comes up to a lab worker. He knows he's got the urine. “How would you like to have a million dollars?” A little transaction there. I mean, somebody's going to say “That's crazy. That can never happen.” Such things have been known to happen. We have to guard against worst case scenarios.
It could happen!!! Someone please explain to me how this man ever managed to become a surgeon? I hate to break it to him but there are probably a lot cheaper and more effective ways that terrorists could spread disease in the United States other than buying urine at a lab for $1M. Not that any of that matters. The only thing they care about is helping to do their best to terrorize the American public all on their own.
