Folks this is very seriously hilarious.

I bid you to follow the link and see what I mean

But please leave your I’m voting for Ben Carson cards in the drawer

It’s not yet on YouTube so I cant embed the video

Ben Carson apparently doesn’t know anything about foreign policy. Shocking, I know, for the guy who thinks the pyramids were used as grain silos. He was asked three times for the first person he would have called after the Paris attacks if he’s been in office. He couldn’t answer the question.Trevor Noah had some fun with that on Wednesday night’s “Daily Show,” saying these issues are really complex and you can’t change the way a person thinks. That’s really left up to a neurosurgeon. After advisor Duane Clarridge made a few truthful comments outing Carson as lacking the foreign policy chops to debate on his feet, the campaign denied that the adviser was ever actually an adviser. Well, except forthat time they used him to help with an op-ed in the New York Times.

I'm pretty sure Ben Carson is guaranteeing Ben Carson won't be elected president.

Are you saying it's deliberate?

It seems that Carson looks so ridiculous that he must be putting us on

If you look to comedy central for serious information on politics you're too ignorant for anyone to help.

You can find a link to the actual interview here:

To be honest it was a really dumb trap question. Why would we only call one country after a terrorist attack on that scale? He gave the correct answer: he would call all of our allies. Why start a war with two countries when you could have all of NATO at your back?

People poking fun at him are just frustrated he didn't fall for an obvious trap question. If he had answered "Britain" or "France" or "Germany" or anyone else, they would have been picking him apart for not answering any of the other countries that are one of our allies.

Dumb question, dumb people, dumb comedy central skit.

Carson seems very impressed with himself when he speaks. He's like a male Sarah Palin. I could hardly stand to listen to her because it was painfully embarrassing and this is a lot like that.

Ben Carson will crash and burn his campaign. The guy may be smart when it comes to medical, but it doesn't mean you understand world politics or understand the problems the U.S. faces. You would think before any of these candidates decided to run for the highest office in the country, they would have spent months researching and analyzing world affairs. Most of these candidates are hanging from a string when explaining their political ideas related to world and national events! You can't just give sound bite answers without explaining the reason or how you plan on implementing them. The minute a candidate starts getting a blank face, gives a simple answer, or starts mumbling Palin gibberish, that should raise a red flag the person is not qualified.
