Donald Trump Bashes Ben Carson On Job Creation
September 3, 2015

It was only a matter of time until Donald Trump went after his friend, Ben Carson, who has been gaining ground in the polls on him and attack he did in a Daily Caller interview:

Asked by TheDC whether being a doctor provides the necessary experience to be president, Trump said while Carson is “a wonderful guy,” he thinks it would be “very tough” for someone who spent his life as a surgeon to handle the job.

“I think it’s a very difficult situation that he’d be placed in,” Trump elaborated. “He’s really a friend of mine, I just think it’s a very difficult situation that he puts himself into, to have a doctor who wasn’t creating jobs and would have a nurse or maybe two nurses. It’s such a different world. I’ve created tens of thousands of jobs over the years.”

In Trumps's world, that was a pretty tame criticism of Ben in comparison to his attacks on Jeb and Scott Walker, but that might kick off some fighting words from the Carson campaign, (nothing on twitter so far) which could rev up the tension between the two camps.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump and Ted Cruz are still in the thralls of a Hannibal Lecter/Will Graham bromance type crush on each other.
