Leaving his lethargic, timid personality behind, Ben Carson blasted the press (11:00 mark in the video below) for their dishonesty and lying, standing up reporters who accused him of lying about a West Point scholarship.
“I never said I received a full scholarship,” Carson replied. “I never – wait a minute, don’t lie! I never said that I received a full scholarship. Nowhere did I say that!”
“There have been reports….” a reporter replied.
“Politico, as you know, told a bold-faced lie,” Carson explained. “They’ve been called out on that by The Washington Post and The New York Times and I’m sure there will be several others who call them out on that, because there are actually some people with integrity in your business.”
Carson earlier turned the tables on the press, asking why Barack Hussein was not given the type of scrutiny by the same press and why Hussein’s sealed records were not and are not important to them, as well as the Frank Marshall Davis and Jeremiah Wright scandals (7:35 mark), yet a silly controversy which has already been redacted by Politico, the original source of the rumor, has been shot down. Very legitimate questions. No one would answer.
Later in the press conference, a reported asked why Carson was raising the question about Obama’s records being sealed.
“Why?” Carson replied. “Because I want to know. You should want to know too.”
He added, “Wait a minute! Hold on one minute. One second here. Now you are saying that something that happened with the words ‘a scholarship was offered’ is a big deal, but president of the United States, his academic records being sealed is not? Tell me how there is equivalency there! Tell me somebody, please!”
Carson continued, saying he would not stand idly by, allowing the media to be completely unfair, impugning his character, based on lies reported by that same media.
“Because you see, what you are not going to find with me is somebody who is just going to sit back and let you be completely unfair without letting the American people know what’s going on. And the American people are waking up to your games.”
