Ben Carson continues to tap dance for Donald Trump. While most prominent republicans have denounced and withdrawn support from Trump following his crude sexual comments, Carson has decided to stand by the polarizing presidential candidate.

In 2005 while Trump was talking to Billy Bush on the set of “Access Hollywood.” The two were on a bus when Trump began speaking about his sexual relationships while a live mic remained on. Months after marrying his third wife Melania, Trump revealed that he pressured TV host Nancy O’Dell for sex while she was married. He also belived that he could sexually assault women because he was “rich.”

“Even though the incident happened ten years ago, well before Trump entered the political arena, this behavior is unacceptable, especially by someone who aspires to higher office. Trump did the right thing in immediately and unequivocally apologizing,” Carson wrote in an op-ed piece for The Hill.

Carson also told Armstrong Williams that Trump’s words were similar to the words that were presented by rappers. “There are two issues. The tape itself, which unfortunately is the kind of language that we hear in rap music, we hear in probably coarse conversation, you know, unfortunately, we hear this. No one listening to that tape in media and political life has not heard it before.”

It’s ridiculous to compare Trump’s lewd words to rap lyrics. Although rap music is vulgar at times, there has yet to be a rapper who became a legit presidential candidate. Furthermore, Trump didn’t make those comments during his youth, he was a 68-year-old man in 2005. If he was a senior citizen and held those beliefs, it’s likely that those are the beliefs that define him as a man.

Trump continues to prove that he doesn’t have the knowledge, skill, or temperament to be president. It’s unfortunate that Carson and other Americans have decided to ignore the obvious facts.

    All I can say is “Damn Ben”! At some point you need to realize that you cooning and caping for Trump is a very bad look for such a legendary figure. If his own people call him out – how do you look supporting this guy?

    Dr Ben cooning? Really a man that has more brains and integrity than all the commenters on this board put together is cooning? Negro please.

    Here’s a quick sample from an artist that I like but clearly is “locker room” talk like Trump did

    From the song Lay Low
    [Goldie Loc – Eastsidaz]

    Where that nigga who be talkin shit?

    He don’t come around no more because I fucked his bitch

    I made her suck my dick, while I was squeezin the tits

    Then I hit it from the back, gripped tight on them hips

    She tried to make me cum, but I was tryin to take her home

    Dropped you off and seen you fishin on your raggedy Brougham

    Coulda thumped you and the dog (you little fag)

    And don’t sag too hard, you show everybody your thong

    I’m not defending Trump–not voting for him and I’m sure not cooning for KKKillary Clinton either.

    Carson made a very good comparison and it’s foolish to say his comparison of locker room talk is similar to rap.

      You can pen all of the rap lyrics that you want to, won’t matter. As stated before, no rap artist has become a legit candidate for the United States presidency. And this is from someone who doesn’t even listen to rap music. When we start comparisons like this, it diminishes certain roles and in no way should we diminish the role of the President of the United States.

    All you men who are upset with Trumps comments are doing a fine job raising your wife’s Son!

    Grow a pair of balls and see this for what it is. It was a private conversation recorded a decade ago. Hillary and Bill have done far worse!

    And millions of black people are still tap-dancing for their liberal democrat masters:

    The liberal attitude toward racial minorities is cloaked in compassion, but it is the intellectual equivalent of a master to slave relationship. Subconsciously, they believe they own the souls of black folk, bought and paid for by their civil rights credentials. As a result, they only like the “good” blacks who stay in their place. Those who dare escape the left-wing plantation find themselves the target of a “high tech lynching” reserved for minorities who get “uppity.” Ask Justice Clarence Thomas.

    When any black person makes progress, they must remember they owe it to their liberal benefactors. When liberals defend affirmative action, they do so in the paternalistic belief that blacks cannot compete on the same level with whites. As intellectual superiors, it is their duty to take care of them. They glibly advocate lowering test standards and giving government set asides and handouts. Woe to the “racist” who questions the fairness or effectiveness of such policies.

    They resent the very suggestion that any minority can succeed without liberal promotion and protection. Through liberal government largess they have clothed, fed and housed poor minority victims. They are personally insulted to think that any would want to escape. Blacks have the most exalted position in the liberal hierarchy of adopted groups. Any black person who disregards such beneficence must be punished to be taught a lesson and to keep others in line. Judges Janet Rogers Brown and Miguel Estrada were denied confirmation of their judicial appointments because they went off the ideological plantation. It is ugly, but it is liberal realpolitik. http://www.standardnewswire.com/news/93224348.html

    Blasts Trump for making shocking comments about women. Invites rappers to the White House.

    I’m pretty sure Trump was not 68 11 years ago seeing how he is 70 now.
