Former Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson endorsed GOP front-runner Donald Trump in an awkward press event today.
In previewing his endorsement, Dr. Carson initially tried to tell a story of "two Donald Trumps," before backtracking on what was coming across as an odd notion.
Finally, he got a little more thoughtful. Via Politico:
“Well, first of all, we buried the hatchet," Carson said, referring to Trump’s accusation of Carson being a pathological liar who showed the same destructive tendencies as a child molester. "That was political stuff. And, you know, that happens in American politics, the politics of personal destruction. 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.”
