Ben Carson Combative Press Conference: "Why Are Obama's School Records Still Sealed?" My Scholarship Is More Important?

|

Dr. Ben Carson addressed the media this evening on the allegedly false claims he made in his book, "Gifted Hands", including claims that he was offered a full scholarship to West Point about 50 years ago.

After taking questions for about seven minutes, Carson (for lack of better words) snaps, yelling and mocking reporters in a manic tone: "Obama goes to Occidental college, doesn't do well, somehow ends up at Columbia University, I dunno? Why?"

"His records are sealed. Why are his records sealed? You're not interested in that? Can somebody tell me why? I'm asking you why are they sealed? Don't change the subject. Will someone tell me please why you have not investigated that."

"Something with the words 'a scholarship was offered' is a big deal, but the president of the U.S. his acedemic records being sealed is not. Tell me how there is quivilency there. Tell me somebody, please."

BEN CARSON: I do not remember this level of scrutiny for President Barack Obama, when he was running, in fact I remember just the opposite, I remember people just said, oh we won't really talk about that relationship, oh, Frank Marshall Davis, oh we don't want to talk about that, Bernadine Dorne, Bill Ayers, we don't want to know about that, all the things Jeremiah Wright was saying, ehh not a big problem.

Goes to Occidental college, doesn't do well, somehow ends up at Columbia University, I dunno.

His records are sealed. Why are his records sealed? You're not interested in that? Can somebody tell me why? I'm asking you why are they sealed? Don't change the subject. Will someone tell me please why you have not investigated that.

Something with the words 'a scholarship was offered' is a big deal, but the president of the U.S. his acedemic records being sealed is not. Tell me how there is quivilency there. Tell me somebody, please.

Because you see, what you're not going to find with me is somebody who is going to sit back and be comepletely unfair without letting the American pople know what is going on; the American people are waking up to your games.
