In other news, Trump campaign surrogate and New York co-chair Carl Paladino says Trump's Muslim ban as never about the Muslim religion. As you know, words have no meaning.

Meanwhile, Ben Carson says his mother would have murdered campaign reporters. But really, that's only the half of it. Get a load of this shit:

Asked on CBS Radio’s “Brown and Scoop” podcast how his mother would’ve felt if she were “alive” to witness this year’s election, Carson clarified that his mother, Sonya, is still alive but suffers from Alzheimer’s disease.

She’s not really cognizant of that, which is a good thing because my mother is really a fighter,” said the retired neurosurgeon, who is now advising Donald Trump. “She probably would have taken a gun and gone out and shot some of the dishonest reporters.”

Jesus Christ, man.

Finally, a new Reuters-IPSOS poll found that Donald Trump's supporters are much more likely to be racists than Clinton supporters. I'm sure you're very surprised by this.

Speaking of racism, this guy introduced Donald Trump in Maine this afternoon:

    Nothing really surprising here. But I am wondering at this point why anyone thinks that Ben Carson is at all pertinent, much less that CBS Radio is interviewing him as someone whose views are notable. His failed attempt to snag the Repugnican nomination revealed a fairly soft-spoken, distinguished guy without one iota of common sense or rational decision making outside of an operating room. In fact, if I or anyone I knew had been a patient of Dr. Ben Carson, I would immediately head over to the ER to have them run x-rays and make sure he did not leave any instruments lying around inside. I am not sure anyone who has been revealed to be this ignorant, clueless and unapologetic about it should be operating on another human being.

      If wasn’t so disturbing it would be funny, I can’t not believe these guys are that clueless, just blows my mind.

      They don’t want to stop. They’ve given themselves permission to keep going.

      • Exactly, Trump is permission for the GOP base to let their racist flag fly high and proud.
