Dr. Ben Carson's mantra must be that whatever idiotic thing conservatives say, he can do better.

The former GOP presidential candidate was on with Fox News' Greta Van Susteren Thursday night during the RNC convention and he was asked to give his thoughts abotu Trump, his speech and his children.

Greta asked, "Do you know Ivanka?"

Carson replied, "I have met her, all the Trump children are absolutely delightful people and I think that speaks volumes about the man."

Some might say his kids turned out pretty good in spite of him, but I digress.

“Anybody who can raise children, particularly in the environment they came up in, which I think is a disadvantaged environment. Because I know a lot of people who are very rich and their kids are so spoiled, and I think it’s a disadvantage. I really do.”

Is he frelling kidding me?

Carson has now became Donald Trump's personal court jester. I think whenever he appears on television he should wear a "fools hat."
