Ben Carson Backs Down Against Donald Trump - Apologizes
September 10, 2015

QOTD:

“I would like to say to him that the intention was not to talk to him but about what motivates me,” he said about his religion comment. “If he took that as a personal attack on him, I apologize, it was certainly not the intent.”

If the man can't take on Trump, how's he going to fight ISIS?

Carson “makes Bush look like the Energizer bunny,” he said, adding that “Ben Carson will not be the next president, that I can tell you.”

The next logical step would be for Carson to counter-counter-punch, feed the media frenzy, while Americans grab for the popcorn. Instead, Carson wants to dial down the drama. “I’m not going to get into that fray,” he said.

“Everyone is going to be saying, ‘Oh there’s a big fight, everyone come watch the fight,’” he said. “But it's just not going to be as great as they think, because I’m not going to participate.”

In fact, he said the whole thing is a misunderstanding, and that he feels bad that Trump thought he was attacking him at all.

“I would like to say to him that the intention was not to talk to him but about what motivates me,” he said about his religion comment. “If he took that as a personal attack on him, I apologize, it was certainly not the intent.”

Earlier the Carson campaign led by the huckster Armstrong Williams asked Trump to apologize:

Ben Carson's business manager, Armstrong Williams, tells CNN that the Carson campaign will not reach out to Donald Trump; rather, Williams says the Trump campaign should reach out first and apologize for questioning Carson's faith.

Sounds like a very confused Carson campaign at this point.
