The top two GOP candidates are doing all they can to stay one and two……at times it seems that they try to out stupid each other…..Trump yells…..Carson mumbles….different styles but the same results…..
Let me begin with the stupid from Trump…….
Donald Trump said Thursday that Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl should have been executed for leaving his post in Afghanistan. “We’re tired of Sgt. Bergdahl, who’s a traitor, a no-good traitor, who should have been executed,” the Republican presidential front-runner said to cheers at a rowdy rally inside a packed Las Vegas theater at the casino-hotel Treasure Island. “Thirty years ago,” Trump added, “he would have been shot.” Bergdahl’s attorney, Eugene Fidell, said in a statement that Trump “has become a broken record on this subject.” “If he took the time to study what actually emerged at the preliminary hearing he would be singing a different tune,” Fidell said. Trump has, in the past, pantomimed a firing squad, Fidell said.
Bergdahl was charged in March with desertion and misbehavior before the enemy. The Army conducted a hearing on his case earlier this month. Bergdahl has been accused of leaving his post in southeastern Afghanistan in June 2009. He was held prisoner by the Taliban for five years, then exchanged for five Taliban commanders being held by the US. Trump has long railed against the deal.
This situation has been fodder for all those less than accurate Right wing blogs……but Everyone no matter what you think of the person should shut up and let the evidence and his trial determine his fate…..since you were not there then you have NO idea what the situation was all about…..this is still America and like it or not…you are innocent until proven otherwise….
Next on the stupid greatest hits list is Carson,the number 2 in the GOP great pantheon, and his statement about gun control and the Holocaust…..
During a CNN interview Thursday that was largely spent defending his controversial comments after the Oregon campus shootings, Ben Carson made another controversial statement, this time about the Holocaust. “I think the likelihood of Hitler being able to accomplish his goals would have been greatly diminished if the people had been armed,” he said. “I’m telling you there is a reason these dictatorial people take the guns first.” As ABC News reports, Carson was on the subject in the first place because his new book, A Perfect Union, includes the line: “Through a combination of removing guns and disseminating propaganda, the Nazis were able to carry out their evil intentions with relatively little resistance.” The CNN interviewer asked him, “Just to clarify, if there had been no gun control laws in Europe at that time, would 6 million Jews have been slaughtered?”
The Anti-Defamation League was quick to respond: “Ben Carson has a right to his views on gun control, but the notion that Hitler’s gun-control policy contributed to the Holocaust is historically inaccurate,” says the organization’s national director. “The small number of personal firearms available to Germany’s Jews in 1938 could in no way have stopped the totalitarian power of the Nazi German state.” Another odd Carson quote from an interview with Sirius XM Wednesday: “I have had a gun held on me when I was in a Popeye’s organization,” he said, referring to the fast food chain. “Guy comes in, put the gun in my ribs. And I just said, ‘I believe that you want the guy behind the counter.'” That line led to this headline on the Raw Story: “Ben Carson: I got held up once at Popeye’s—but I told the gunman to rob an employee, instead.”
Just wrong on so many levels……
Like I said….trying to out stupid the other!
