Lindsey Graham On Ben Carson: 'Can’t Understand What He's Saying Half The Time'

Lindsey Graham admitted that he has no idea what Ben Carson is saying half the time.

Lindsey Graham told The Morning Joe crew that he doesn't understand most of what Ben Carson is saying most of the time. If you've watched any of Carson's many appearances, you'd come away with the same observation. And let's face, I think Carson knows it too.

EUGENE ROBINSON, THE WASHINGTON POST: Senator, for me, the headline from the campaign right now is Dr. Ben Carson and the fact that he is in such a strong second place in national polls and increasingly in state polls. How do you explain his appeal?

SCARBOROUGH: And Gene says -- What was your column on -- on Ben Carson earlier this week?

ROBINSON: Yes, it was a column on Ben Carson earlier this week.

SCARBOROUGH: It was kind of tough.

ROBINSON: Yeah, it was kind of tough.


ROBINSON: I frankly don't get it. He's a lovely man. He's a great doctor. I don't see him as Commander in Chief. But how do you explain his obvious appeal?

GRAHAM: He's a lovely man, he's a great doctor, and everybody else thinks we suck. That's all I know what to tell you. I can't understand what he's saying half the time. He's a brilliant guy but I don't think he has a clue about what's going on in the Mideast. So what can I say? I don't know. I'm just doing the best I can. I'm going to do well in New Hampshire. I've had two dozen town halls and they actually ask me something.

SCARBOROUGH: That may well be the great --

BRZEZINSKI: This is the authentic Lindsey Graham.

SCARBOROUGH: That may be the greatest answer of the week, so we should just end it there.

And I think outside of the Fox News base of loyal viewers, this is most probably what they woudl tell you also.

Jimmy Kimmel and David Alan Grier nail Donald Trump and the cough medicine guzzling Ben Carson.
