Ben Carson Turns Heat on Reporters in Feisty News Conference

Ben Carson was feisty. He was mocking. He was unyielding. And he was unexpectedly theatrical.

Mr. Carson, the doctor whose soft-spoken and sedate style has made his rise to the top of the Republican presidential field all the more puzzling, abandoned his gentle manner on Friday night and delivered a powerful public scolding of the news media that has begun to question his celebrated biography.

    I quite like Ben Carson and this could work for him if he manages to survive it. It’s interesting why the MSM-DNC (stole that term from somewhere) has chosen to pick on him instead of giving him the Obama-like pass – who’s behind this co-ordinated effort?

    I thought that only two people per state could go to West Point and have to be nominated by the state’s senator – is that not true?

    Regardless, if this is a nose-stretcher and Carson’s biggest sin I’d still take him over Hillary, her private email server, her claim that Ambassador Stevens’ death was the result of a Youtube video that at the time had less than 200 views, and the use of said email server by Hilary to instruct sidekick Huma Abadin to make sure she got the right light fixture SKU from Chelsea.

    ..this one is much better
    “Why are you guys not interested in why
    Obama’s records are sealed?
    ” Will someone tell me please why you have not
    investigated that!?”

    …reporter shouts ” he is President all ready”

      You are reading my mind!

          Manning is a very special nigger.

          “Dat’s what dey hear”

          I don’t give a fuck what “dey” hear. Nor do I give a fuck what “dey” think.

          If you are a ghetto “nigger” (HIS words) and you are too stupid and useless to get and keep a job, pay your dues and try to improve your lot then fuck you. Live in your dump forever and die there (as soon as possible).

          What has this racist dick ever done that can compare to Carson becoming a neurosurgeon? NOTHING. He’s just another pissed off envious black who’s accomplished nothing of value and contributed nothing of value and just another useless media mike sucker.

    I heard a partial audio of that news conference and it really is something.
    I’ll look for it.
    Our media are hacks and liars.

    The slime stream media ONLY accept blacks who are rabidly left-wing – just like they are. If a black is even SLIGHTLY right wing, they go after him with all they can muster – name calling and lying, anything to TRY and make him look bad. But all they do is make themselves look bad; but they are so deluded they do not see that.

    I like what is happening in the election in the U.S. Republicans are following Trump’s lead and fighting back against the useless, biased scumbags in the “news” media.

    This won’t happen in canada because our ….”leaders” are way too gutless. Harper was about as close as we’ll ever come to a politician fighting back against the media and even he wouldn’t take firm action against the CBC. He should have trashed the CBC on the first week of his first majority.

    If any “fighting back” is going to be done against media liberal bias it wil have to be done by individual conservatives.

  • Norman_In_New_York

    Dr. Carson is only the latest Republican candidate to stick it to the media, following the examples of Trump, Cruz, Rubio and Christie. The media, meanwhile, are branding themselves as obnoxious and unprofessional.

  • Gary

    Hillary is now claiming that Benghazi was in 2012 way back then and it’s old news so lets move on.
    Yet the the Liberal media run by Obama has dragged up a story about Ben from 15 years ago, then they recently brought up a fabricated story that twisted what really happened to him while in the ROTC program where he declined a scholarship for West Point and was NOT turned down from gorging at the trough for a free ride at West Point .

    Hillary even claims that her Sever and email issues is old news as just an attack by another Ring-wing conspiracy.

    The CEO of Mozilla was forced out of his job by the pressure from the GayStapo Brown Shirt thugs over his support for traditional marriage in 2009 that Hillary and Obama also supported.

  • BillyHW

    “Journalists” are filth and scum, the lowest of the low.

    • G

      That’s because they are lazy fucks.
      They were too lazy or stupid to go to university & take something useful but their egos demanded fame so they get cheap fame by pointing fingers at others.

      Even the few (very few) who DO actually study something valuable in their school years are too lazy & useless to pursue that career path.

      These shit smears deserve NO respect whatsoever.

    Dr. Ben Carson is a good man and for all the people. It’s sad what other people have tried to do to his reputation. Dr. Ben Carson is right-on regarding “news reporters” trying to stir up bogus issues and tarnish his truthfulness and past, when much bigger issues on others have been swept under the carpet. –It is so sad what has been done to our American Constitution and the racist stirrings perpetrated against the People of America in the desire that our leaders have to maintain political power and money. I never considered myself politically interested—let alone as politically involved. But it is obvious that the interests of “We the People,” are not even secondary to the political cash/power people in our country. —I believe in God and would describe myself as an Evangelist. The Bible says in the last days people will be deluded in their thoughts. It is such a nonsensical “Alice in Wonderland” world where up is down and down is up, that I can’t help but wonder if we aren’t that generation. “Woo to those who call evil good and good evil.”
