    The Hill ^ | 10/12/2016 | Jonathan Easley
    Top Donald Trump adviser Ben Carson came to House Speaker Paul Ryan’s defense on Tuesday and criticized the GOP nominee for exacerbating an intra-party feud less than a month before the election. “Paul Ryan is being very pragmatic,” Carson said in an interview with The Hill. “He recognizes that if Donald Trump loses, Hillary Clinton needs a firewall so she can’t do whatever she wants. He wants to make sure to keep the firewall there, so he’s devoting his energy to doing that.” Trump laid into Ryan in a series of tweets on Tuesday morning, calling the Speaker “weak and...

    Dr. Ben Carson was a world-renowned neurosurgeon before he ran for President. If anyone understands the potential neurological issues facing Hillary after her collapse on 9/11, it’s him. Dr. Ben Carson told Buzzfeed he has real concerns about Hillary’s health: “In the case of Hillary Clinton, because she has had a brain injury in the past and there is a question of venous sinus thrombosis, the result of a recent specialized MRI would be very helpful. The stakes are too high for us to blindly elect someone to the presidency of the United States when we have the possibility of...

    Ben Carson, the former neurosurgeon and past GOP presidential hopeful, suggested Wednesday that Khizr and Ghazala Khan, the parents of a fallen Muslim American war hero, slandered Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. The Khans, whose son died fighting for the United States in Iraq, have garnered national attention for their appearance at the Democratic National Convention. The searing speech delivered by Khizr Khan condemned Trump and his anti-Muslim attitude. “I recognize that they are grieving, and very often they will say and do things out of that grief; I think we should just give them a pass and move on,”...

"All of the Trump children are absolutely delightful people. And I think that speaks volumes about the man," he said, referring to the GOP nominee. "Anybody who can raise children, particularly in the environment they came up in, which I think is a disadvantaged environment.

This is partly because the political class and their media stenographers have no idea what to do with serious discussions of God, faith and the spiritual world as it really is.

It took Ben Carson just a few short minutes to move away from the teleprompter and toward the devil at the Quickens Loans Arena Tuesday. About half an hour after New Jersey Governor and fellow Trump primary victim Chris Christie staged a mock witch trial for Hillary Clinton, Carson strolled to the podium, beaming from ear to ear. "I'm not politically correct," Carson announced. "And I hate political correctness." From there, he abandoned his prepared remarks to talk about Saul Alinsky, the Democratic...

    The Amish don’t read Donald Trump’s tweets and can’t watch his television appearances, and voting is practically against their religion. But that’s not stopping a group of Trump allies with ties to Ben Carson and Newt Gingrich from mounting a campaign to turn them out anyway. Amish PAC was started by an alum of a pro-Carson super PAC, an ex-Amish donor to that super PAC and an employee of Gingrich Productions. The group is planning to mount an old-fashioned, billboards-and-newspaper-ads effort this summer, designed to encourage Amish people in Pennsylvania and Ohio to turn out for Trump in November....

    Ben Carson has the ability to say everything he shouldn’t at exactly the wrong time. Since the former neurosurgeon has taken up the role of working on Donald Trump’s vice presidential team, he has suggested that the candidate may pick a Democratic running mate, dropped she-who-must-not-be-named Sarah Palin as a potential pick and earlier generally questioned a number of the presumptive nominee’s habits from his Twitter use to lack of pragmatism. So he was off the VP team in a hurry.
