Worst Compliment Ever: Carson’s Bromance Goes Cold

Dr. Ben Carson, after selling out the conservative movement, betraying all his followers, and flushing his ideals down the medical waste chute, decided to pull back a little on his full-throated endorsement of Trump.

Just in case Trump actually loses the nomination, or burns down the entire political house, the GOP, and half the cities in America when he loses in a crushing landslide to Hillary, Carson thought it wise to resort to half-baked, left-handed compliments.

You know the kind of compliments you read in a luke-warm job reference: “nobody could do a better job,” or “we couldn’t find a better employee.” Or this:

“The way I look at it, even if Donald Trump turns out not to be such a great president — which I don’t think is the case, I think he’s going to surround himself with really good people — but even if he didn’t, we’re only looking at four years,” the former GOP presidential candidate said on Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show.” “Opposed to multiple generations and perhaps the loss of the American dream forever.”

Oh, now that you put it that way, perhaps in lieu of suicide or burning down my own house and living under a bridge, maybe four years of Trump wouldn’t be a bad alternative. Even if pouring gasoline all over my living room rug resulted in my house burning down–which I don’t think it will–even if I lit this match, at least I will be able to run from the kitchen.

I don’t think we’ll see Dr. Carson on the stage with Donald Trump anytime soon, but then again, there’s no limit to Trump’s galactic ego, so maybe we will, but only with a muzzle and a leash applied.
