Editorial: Benny’s bad week

Ben Carson appeared on The O’Reilly Factor tonight (Jan 13th) where the eponymous host mentioned a new ABC/Washington Post poll showing him with a 65% favorability rating amongst Republicans (but NOT that he’s dropped 8pts since November), but the doctor offered very few specifics on any of his newly announced policies which was just as well since O’Reilly failed to ask about them or give him any real pushback on his jovial non-answers.

I understand O’Reilly not asking Carson about his latest involuntary “Campaign shakeup” (coming less than two weeks after his campaign manager, spokesman resigned in late December) as that story was released AFTER Carson’s segment was taped (The Factor is taped at 5pm, the time stamp on the story is “5:41pm”).

What I don’t understand is how the self-professed “crusader for the kids” didn’t ask – even in passing – about a recent incident where the doctor humiliated (albeit unintentionally) himself AND a young boy at a town hall meeting in Iowa. Maybe kids are only Americans when he’s trying to sell books
