Potential Presidential Candidate Calls Obama A 'Psychopath'

Presidential hopeful, Dr. Ben Carson, who is a retired neurosurgeon and conservative favorite was recently profiled in GQ magazine making some eye-popping claims.

For example, when President Barack Obama gave his annual State of the Union speech--Carson responded by calling the president a "psychopath." Carson went on to say, "Like most psychopaths. That's why they're successful. That's the way they look. They all look great."

It's not unusual for Carson to make statements that do not roll in the same direction as liberals in America. Earlier this month, Dr. Carson made national headlines when he said that men who become gay in prison prove that homosexuality is a choice.

Carson has also repeatedly compared the U.S. to Nazi Germany. In one interview Carson said, "I mean, [our society is] very much like Nazi Germany. And I know you're not supposed to say 'Nazi Germany,' but I don't care about political correctness. You know, you had a government using its tools to intimidate the population. We now live in a society where people are afraid to say what they actually believe."

Of his time interviewing Carson GQ's Jason Zengerle wrote, "On several occasions, I tried to get Carson to concede that his analogy likening the U.S. to Nazi Germany was out of line. Our longest discussion about the matter came in Jerusalem, in the cafeteria of the Holocaust museum at Yad Vashem. We'd spent the previous ninety minutes touring the museum, followed by Carson entering Yad Vashem's Hall of Remembrance and, black kippah atop his head, laying a wreath. ... Given all this, I asked Carson, did it make him reconsider his analogy?" Carson replied, "Not at all. It makes [the Nazi comparison] even stronger." Carson even compared the Syrian civil war to the racially charged riots in Ferguson by stating, "It's just like the troublemakers in Ferguson."
