Trump Ramps Up Racism, Compares Carson To Child Molester

Donald Trump pulled all the racist tropes out of his very deep closet.

Donald Trump just bared his teeth and went for Ben Carson's throat, pulling all the racist weapons out of his toolbox he could find.

In an interview with CNN, Trump said that Carson — who has recently overtaken Trump in some state and national polls — had a “pathological temper” and was prone to violence. He then compared Carson to a child molester.

“You don’t cure these people. You don’t cure a child molester. There’s no cure for it. Pathological, there’s no cure for that,” Trump said.

He didn't stop with Ben Carson either. He also took a moment to smack Marco Rubio around too.

In another racially loaded remark in the same interview, Trump said that Marco Rubio supported “amnesty” for undocumented immigrants because he’s Hispanic. Rubio co-authored a bill in the Senate that would have opened a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. He now opposes the measure.

The only person Trump hasn't gone after is Ted Cruz. I said weeks ago that there's a strategy there, and it seems to me to be emerging now. Do you see it too?
