CARSON: Some people said, "But, well, you know, he said terrible things about you; how can you support him?" Well, first of all, we buried the hatchet. That was political stuff. And, you know, that happens in American politics. The politics of personal destruction and all that is not something that I particularly believe in or anything that I get involved in. But I do recognize that it is a part of the process. We move on because it's not about me; it's not about Mr. Trump. It's about America. And this is what we have to be thinking about. I have found, in talking with him, that, you know, there's a lot more alignment philosophically and spiritually than I ever thought that there was.
RUSH: Okay, well, that's... I'm sitting here thinking, "If that's just politics, why are you so upset at Ted Cruz for believing what CNN tweeted about leaving the campaign and heading back to Florida?" Well, no, I'm just asking. Well, yeah. "How can you support Trump? He said some terrible things about you." "Well, we buried the hatchet. It's political stuff, you know? That kind of stuff happens in politics." Well, he must not have forgiven Ted Cruz. Ted Cruz didn't do anything! Ted Cruz never said anything like what Trump said about Ben Carson. But we're not through here. Carson continued...
Flashback to last June here:
Dr. Benjamin Carson is one of the finest, most accomplished human beings on this planet who has done more for people than most people in politics will ever do. And he's done it personally, not with other people's money. Dr. Ben Carson is a first-class human being and citizen. He is exactly the kind of person that you could trust running any government institution. You would trust him to babysit your kids. He's just an admirable human being. He has overcome great odds. He's brilliant. He's temperate. There is everything in the world to recommend about the humanity of Dr. Benjamin Carson, and here he is on CNN today ripped and said it's unfortunate that somebody like Ben Carson will be made to look serious when Trump gets in as the clown.
