Trump compares Carsons pathological temper to child molesting: You dont cure that
Donald Trump tried to link what he described as fellow GOP presidential candidate Ben Carsons anger issues to child molestation during an interview set to air on CNN on Thursday night.
Its in [Carsons] book that hes got a pathological temper, Trump told host Erin Burnett. Thats a big problem because you dont cure that. As an example: child molesting. You dont cure these people. You dont cure a child molester. Theres no cure for it. Pathological, theres no cure for that.
Carson, who has been Trumps stiffest competition in the Republican nomination, has come under increased scrutiny after saying in his autobiography that he attacked a friend with a knife and hit a relative on the head with a hammer. The former neurosurgeon recently said that the relative in question was his mother.
I mean, thats pretty bad, Trump said. When he says hes pathological and he says that in the book, I dont say that and again, Im not saying anything, Im not saying anything other than pathological is a very serious disease. And he said hes pathological, somebody said he has pathological disease.
