During a segment this morning on CNN about criminal justice, Ben Carson randomly suggested that one of the anchors had committed a crime, just because he could.
Berman asked Carson if Corey Lewandowski should remain in charge of the Trump campaign in light of his arrest for allegedly grabbing the arm of a former Breitbart News reporter. He noted many people cited Lewandowski's battery as a credible reason to dismiss the top aide.
"Well, I mean, a lot of people have been charged with various things," Carson responded. "That doesn't necessarily mean we need to demonize them. You've probably been charged with something too, maybe with a misdemeanor or something. It doesn't mean you're an evil, horrible person."
Bolduan and Berman looked at each other with disbelief for a few seconds after Carson suggested Berman had a criminal record.
"I actually haven't, as far as I know," Berman then chimed in as Carson continued to talk over him.
