Republican presidential hopeful for the 2016 GOP ticket, Ben Carson has joined fellow Republican, Donald Trump in throwing blames at former President Bill Clinton for the coarsening of children in America. The scandal over then-President Clinton’s relationship with then-White House intern Monica Lewinsky is responsible for the loss of innocence in America’s children, Carson asserted, in an interview on Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor” Monday evening. On the show, according to the CBS, Carson responded to a question about whether former President Bill Clinton’s history with women is problematic. As a pediatric neurosurgeon, I deal with a lot of children, and I see them becoming coarser and wanting to know what certain things are that they’re hearing about on television — things that they would’ve never known about as kids before,” the GOP presidential candidate said. “And a certain innocence disappears from our society. I’m sorry to see that happen, and I’m sorry that it was because one of our presidents,” referring to the Bill Clinton.
Carson agrees with Trump over Bill Clinton
Recently on TV and on Twitter, controversial Donald Trump raised Bill Clinton’s record when he was defending himself against Bill’s wife, Hillary Clinton. Similarly, Carson also agreed with Trump that raising Bill Clinton in the presidential race is reasonable. “Every past president is fair game,” Carson said. “The fact that one of them happens to be married to a presidential candidate doesn’t change that.
Current polls, serious concern for Carson’s camp
For a man with no political knowledge or experience or ideas, Carson has fared remarkably well. At one point, Carson was considered a frontrunner, trailing only Donald Trump. Now he’s a distant fourth place, well behind Trump, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio in recent GOP polls and going into the 2016 election year. He has been viewed by some as not being serious about his ambition as he is about the business or entrepreneurial aspect of it.
