Ben Carson’s scheduled implosion would appear to have begun:
Ben Carson’s campaign on Friday admitted, in a response to an inquiry from POLITICO, that
a central point in his inspirational personal story was fabricated: his
application and acceptance into the U.S. Military Academy at West
The academy has occupied a central place in Carson’s tale for years.
According to a story told in Carson’s book, “Gifted Hands,” the then-17
year old was introduced in 1969 to Gen. William Westmoreland, who had
just ended his command of U.S. forces in Vietnam, and the two dined
together. That meeting, according to Carson’s telling, was followed by a
“full scholarship” to the military academy.
West Point, however, has no record of Carson applying, much less being extended admission.
This concludes this electoral campaign’s scheduled “crazy no-hoper black Republican who rides cuckservative fear of being called racist to glory” ride. Please return your electoral support to the prescribed GOP-designated candidate.
I’m looking forward to hearing that Carson isn’t a surgeon at all, but is actually a janitor at Mercy Medical in Baltimore.
