Cock-up or Conspiracy?

Was Carson being naive in his 'confession' or is this part of a Trump-take-down plot?

Carson certainly doesn't have the nous to think of this on his own.

Indeed. That's my usual go-to heuristic.

But in the case of the GOP, they seem to often manage both simultaneously.

I think he endorsed the idiot because he thought he'd win and then maybe give him a job.

Now people are lined up against trump (rightfully so) and Carson now regrets it.

This election is a freak show.

It's odd though. Isn't it a given that the person who wins looks after their own? Just by making it explicit it becomes prison sentence worthy? But if Carson had just kept his mouth shut no fuss, even if everyone knew that was the deal?

US law is an ass.

US law is an ass.

Because it is seen as a bribe. People can think anything they want, but when the principals in the violation outright admit it, that's acknowledgment of a crime.

Man, these republican candidates are just getting stupider. Looks they have "W" disease, or something.

Carson will retract his statements, Trump will deny them and claim a conspiracy, his supporters will double down on being even more dense, and nothing will happen.

I think your crystal ball has the same channel as mine. Sure would be nice to see that twit in Club Fed, though.

I stand corrected. I never meant to insult weasels. Tongue

Some might be badgers or wolverines.

Or beavers.

Or nile monitors.
