Dr. Ben Carson responded to the recent media attack led by left-leaning POLITICO on his personal story, arguing that vetting and being lied about are two different things.
“The fact of the matter is, what, we should vet all candidates. I have no problem with being vetted,” Carson said. “What I do have a problem with is being lied about. And then, putting that out there. As truth.”
And, I don’t even mind that so much, if they do it with everybody, like people on the other side but you know, when I look at somebody like Hillary Clinton, who sits there and tells her daughter and a government official that no, this was a terrorist attack and then tells everybody else that it was a video, where I came from, they call that a lie.
And — [applause] I think that’s very different from, you know, somebody misinterpreting, when I said, that I was offered a scholarship to West Point, that is the word that they used. But, I have had many people come and say the same thing to me. That is what people do in those situations.
We have to start treating people the same. And finding out what people really think and what they’re made of. People who know me know that I’m an honest person.
