I have to say this one puzzles me quite a bit. I have heard the brief video of Carson explaining that there are two Trumps – the one on stage and the one who thinks but this still does not end my puzzlement. Are we saying then that Trump has a split personality or what? Not to mention Carson repeatedly complained that he hated the childish antics that were part of this campaign and the chief instigator of said antics was Trump. I guess I am not the only one who is puzzled, Carson feed lit up with previous supporters that expressed their disappointment. There were many that expressed their loss of respect for Carson.
I am not sure what to make of it.
- Carson could be seeing in his crystal ball who is going to win this thing and he wants to be in Trumps good graces for possibility of some position in the Trump executive branch.
- Carson has sold his soul like so many evangelicals have already in endorsing Trump and he figures that it is simply his turn.
- Carson just figures “what the hell”.
The one thing that I can say with pretty good certainty is that either Carson is never planning on running for President again or he thinks he can overcome such a large flip-flop of ideology and still run again but I would say he is political toast from now on. There is no way that his supporters will trust him again. At least they shouldn’t.
Given why most people followed Carson, one thing I can say for sure that his endorsement of Trump will not affect Trump’s campaign much. The one thing that is universally true of most Carson supporters was they hated Trump. My guess is this will be a null blip on the support graph. If anything I see them headed to Trump’s opponent – Ted Cruz.
Blessings and Cheers!!!
