Ben Carson went on the ‘Morning Joe’ show and got in a very heated argument with Joe and panelist Katty Kay. Kay started by demanding to know if Carson thought the women coming forward with sexual harassment allegations against Trump were telling the truth.
Carson tried to give a smart and nuanced answer to the question, yet as he tried Katty kept demanding a ‘yes or no’. Carson got annoyed that she kept interrupting him.
Carson responded that Kay was “trying to make me the bad guy,” after they kept interrupting Carson asked, “Can you turn her microphone off, please?” Scarborough responded by shouting ‘No!’
“It’s a simple question. Yes or no? Do you believe these women are lying or not? Nobody’s trying to paint you as a bad guy; we just want an answer. Straight talk,” said Scarsborough.
Carson: “It doesn’t matter whether they’re lying or not. What matters is that the train is going off the cliff. We’re taking our eye off of that and we’re getting involved in other issues that can be taken care of later,” explained Carson. He went onto explain. “Here’s what we need to be thinking about: I love the fact that all of a sudden you want to talk about morality in our country. I would love us to bring back our Judeo-Christian values and begin to teach those things and emphasize them at a time other than a political election. Let’s do that. But right now, the train is going off the cliff.”
