Dr. Ben Carson just blew up any chance he had of being the GOP nominee in 2016. During an interview with Chris Cuomo, Carson said that homosexuality is a choice because "a lot of people who go into prison, go into prison straight, and when they come out they’re gay". Yes, that might be the most ridiculous thing to ever come out of a person's mouth. Glenn had the audio and his reaction on radio this morning.
Cuomo: Vote for a law 100-0 that winds up infringing on the rights of a minority, like happened with slavery, like many argue is happening now with people who are gay.
Carson: And our constitution was -- and we corrected those thing.
Cuomo: Isn't that's what is happening right now? It's being corrected as a violation of equal protection.
Carson: No. You can't say this is the same situation. It is not the same situation, because people have no control over their race, for instance.
Cuomo: You think they have control over their sexuality?
Cuomo: You think being gay is a choice?
Cuomo: Why do you say that?
Carson: Because a lot of people who go into prison, go in straight. And when they come out, they are gay. So did something happen while they were in there?
"Good-bye to his presidential career. It's over. It's over. There's no way to recover from that. That just sounds like a lunatic," Glenn said.
