Here we go again! Ben Carson has what we call “diarrhea of the mouth” and is always blurting out remarks that generally create a mass explosion on Twitter. So in honor of his latest controversial remark about poverty being a “state of mind,” here are five other controversial statements the politician has uttered.
Back in 2015, Carson asked Fusion’s Jorge Ramos, “How about we have a transgender bathroom?”
Then there was that awkward moment when Carson told CNN”s Wolf Blitzer about Nazi, Germany: “I think the likelihood of Hitler being able to accomplish his goals would have been greatly diminished if the people had been armed … I’m telling you, there is a reason these dictatorial people take the guns first.”
Then there’s the time he outright said he would “not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation.” Click to 8:18 – 8:32 for the full comment.
Oh … remember when he said this about Harriet Tubman being on the $2 bill.
And finally … the day he insinuated that slaves were immigrants who wanted a better life.
