Dr. Ben Carson: Obama Is A Psychopath, Or At Least Reminds You Of One


One of Obama's former aides, Neera Tanden, stated of the President: “The truth is, Obama doesn’t call anyone, and he’s not close to almost anyone. It’s stunning that he’s in politics, because he really doesn’t like people. My analogy is that it’s like becoming Bill Gates without liking computers.”

GQ reports that Carson “had come to the Capitol Hill home of Armstrong Williams, a conservative media impresario who officially serves as Carson’s business manager,” for the president’s State of the Union speech. Shortly after, the two began discussing the speech and Obama.

Williams said, GQ reported: “He looks good. He looks clean. Shirt’s white. The tie. He looks elegant.”

And Carson’s quick reply?

“Like most psychopaths,” Carson said, the news site said. “That’s why they’re successful. That’s the way they look. They all look great.”

Williams later said, GQ reported: “He faces the same challenges you will face. He’s got to convince people to believe him. That’s all he’s doing, selling his narrative.”

And Carson’s reply: “But he knows he’s telling a lie. He’s trying to sell what he thinks is not true. He’s sitting there saying, ‘These Americans are so stupid, I can tell them anything.’”

Williams, meanwhile, told Carson shortly after the speech – and while helping him prepare for a round of cable television interviews – to leave behind the “psychopath” comment.

“We don’t have to call him a psychopath,” Williams said, GQ reported. “I don’t want you to go to CNN with that kind of mood.”

Dr. Carson was questioned later on CNBC’s online series “Speakeasy with John Harwood.” Although he didn't fully back off his assesment, he did tone it down a little.

“Obama, you referred to him as a psychopath. What did you mean by that?” asked Harwood.

“I said he reminds you of a psychopath,” Carson offered as a clarification.

“And tell me how.”

“Because they tend to be extremely smooth, charming people, who can tell a lie to your face with complete — it looks like sincerity, even though they know it’s a lie,” Carson said.

“Do you think he’s a liar?” Harwood inquired.

“Well, I think he knows full well the unemployment rate is not 5.5 percent,” Carson responded. “He knows that. He knows that people who are not well-informed will swallow it hook, line and sinker, even though they’re sitting there in the city and can’t find a job.”

Dr. Carson is obviously thinking about his presidental run here, yet clarifying without backing off how he truly feels.
