Ben Carson bumbles Trump support, ‘have to make the best of it’

Ben Carson continues to bumble interviews in an effort to support Donald Trump. Carson was on CNN to clarify disparaging remarks he made over the weekend when he was stumping for the Republican frontrunner on a radio show when Carson said Trump has “major defects” as a candidate.

Audio issues later in the segment made for an awkward exchange between Carson and the anchors when he tried to explain there is always someone better at something than you are.

“Everybody believes that we are weak, we are weak on the world stage, we’re not doing things that make sense economically and he’s probably the person most likely to do that. Are there better people? Probably,”Carson had said.

“Do you think there are better people out there who would be a better president than Donald Trump?” CNN’s John Berman questioned Carson.

“It doesn’t matter what you’re doing. There are better people than me at neurosurgery. There are better people than you being a broadcaster. There are better people at everything. But we have to utilize what we have we have to make the best of it,” Carson said when confronted about his remarks on the radio.

“When you say there are probably better people out there, did you have someone in mind?” Bolduan asked.

“I don’t think that’s a useful place to go. But it’s an obvious statement,” Carson replied.

“You brought it up,” Bolduan retorted.

“If you drop a brick off of a building, it’s going to fall,” Carson said. “Obviously there’s always going to be someone who is better at virtually anything. It doesn’t mean that you’re not good. But of course there are always better people at anything. That should be an obvious statement.”

“You brought it up in this interview. That’s the only reason we’re asking for clarification if you had anybody in mind,” the CNN anchor reminded him.

Carson quickly stuck his foot in it during an appearance on At This Hour, after host John Berman asked him if Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski should be “running the show” after he allegedly grabbed a female reporter and was subsequently charged with misdemeanor battery.

“Well I mean a lot of people have been charged with various things. That doesn’t necessarily mean that we need to demonize them,” Carson said. Then, addressing Berman directly, he added: “You’ve probably been charged with something too, maybe with a misdemeanor or something. It doesn’t mean that you’re an evil, horrible person.”

“I actually haven’t, as far as I know,” Berman replied, looking stunned.
