How To Win Friends And Influence People
January 29, 2016

As far as I know, Dr. Ben Carson has never called anybody a Yuge Loser, but he is very generous with using the term “dishonest.”

Ben Carson said his top outside adviser and longtime friend Armstrong Williams is dishonest – a failing he also attributed to political opponents and the media that has covered his campaign.

Uh, shouldn’t that say “former friend”?

“He doesn’t speak all things that are correct. He often speaks without thinking.”

And Carson doesn’t.

In the same article, Carson, who was apparently sleep walking at the time, is quoted as saying, “The trappings of wealth and power mean nothing to me.”


Have you seen his house?
