Mocks Carson’s knife story

Gives Talk

Trump tells a rally in Fort Dodge, IA, that those who support Carson are “stupid” to believe the “crap” that is his life story. At one point, Trump walks away from the podium and flipped his belt buckle up and down to ridicule what Carson has described as a key event in his life: that Carson, as a boy, once tried but failed to stab someone only to have the knife broken by a belt buckle.

So I have a belt: Somebody hits me with a belt, it’s going in because the belt moves this way. It moves this way, it moves that way. He hit the belt buckle. Anybody have a knife? Want to try it on me? Believe me, it ain’t gonna work. You’re going to be successful, but he took the knife and went like this and he plunged it into the belt and, amazing, the belt stayed totally flat and the knife broke…How stupid are the people of Iowa? How stupid are the people of the country to believe this crap?

Donald Trump Attacks Ben Carson on His Alleged Violent Past

Carson responds:

Now that he’s completed his gratuitous attack, why don’t we press on and deal with the real issues. That’s what the people of America are concerned about, not so much politics as usual, politics of personal destruction — that’s what the American people are sick and tired of…It’s not the kind of dialogue that I would ever engage in and I’m hopeful that his advisers will help him to understand the word pathological and know that that does not connote incurable. It simply describes something that is highly abnormal and something that fortunately I’ve been able to be delivered from for half a century now.

Denies war on women

Gives Talk

Ben Carson speaks at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) at National Harbor in Maryland February 26, 2015.  REUTERS/Kevin LamarqueCarson gives the first address at the CPAC 2015 conference including discussions on pro-life themes and states that abortion advocates label people who are pro-life “anti-woman.”

There is no war on [women], the war is on their babies. Babies that cannot defend themselves. Over the past few decades, we have destroyed 55 million of them. And we have the nerve to call other societies of the past heathen. What we need to do is re-educate the women to understand that they are the defenders of these babies.

Think Big video

Gives Talk

To promote, You Have A Brain, A Teen’s Guide To T.H.I.N.K. B.I.G., Carson appears in a video outlining the meaning of his philosophy:

K is for knowledge, which is the thing that makes you into a more valuable person. Things don’t mean anything. It’s knowledge that allows you to be able to acquire things, it allows you to be able to move to the place that you want to move to, and to accomplish the things that you want to do. That is really why Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived, talked so glowingly about what knowledge can do for a person.
