Dr. Ben Carson Never Took Donald Trump's Insults Personally

In an interview with Yahoo! News on Wednesday, former presidential candidate Ben Carson defended his endorsement of Donald Trump. He said, “It was political. He was concerned about the fact that he couldn’t shake me. I understand politics, and particularly the politics of personal destruction, and you have to admit to some degree it did work. A lot of people believed him.” In November, Trump said of Carson “You don’t cure a child molester. There’s no cure for it. Pathological, there’s no cure for that."

Carson argued, “It’s not really about me. If it were about me, yes, I would be outraged, saying, ‘No way can I support this,’ but it’s not about me. It’s about what’s going to happen to the next generations. I am much more concerned about that than I am about me." Carson added, “My first choice was me. The point being, when I look at the various choices that we have, I didn’t see a path forward for Gov. [John] Kasich, and I didn’t see a path for Sen. [Marco] Rubio [Fla.] and for Sen. [Ted] Cruz [Texas].”
