“More Irrational Chatter”: Ben Carson Thinks Hillary Clinton Is Going To Jail

Ben Carson has predicted many things in his day. He has claimed that End Times were nigh. He has said that a new Hitler could rise. And yesterday, he said that Hillary Clinton will end up behind bars for her actions as Secretary of State.

“Hillary can well be in jail and it’s hard to run from there,” Carson said bemusedly during an interview on The John Gibson Show. He claimed that Joe Biden would be the Democratic nominee less than an hour before the vice president announced that he would not seek the nomination. Gibson’s show runs from noon to 3 p.m.; the announcement came a little before 1 p.m.

“I would think that it would be Biden,” Carson said in his traditional deep-toned whisper, when asked who he would place his bets on.

After Gibson began laughing at the suggestion that Clinton would be in jail, he questioned whether Carson believed that an indictable offense would be discovered in Thursday’s Benghazi hearing.

“Or the computer server—uh—problems,” Carson drawled. Then he started walking it back on the spot.

“I think she may not be actually in jail but I think the controversy swirling around that will have an extremely damaging effect.”

Carson’s campaign did not respond when I asked what Carson had thought of the hearing, now entering its sixth hour, so far.

He spent the remainder of the interview discussing Paul Ryan’s bid for Speaker of the House, which he said he would support if the various caucuses did likewise, and suggested that saying President George W. Bush was responsible for 9/11 is a “blame game” that is not productive.

“Was there chatter going on about terrorist activity?” Carson asked, then proceeded to answer himself. “Of course there was. But not the kind of specific thing that would allow you to, through executive action, prevent such a thing. He certainly went into overdrive after that.”

The campaign has not provided clarification on what he meant by “chatter.”

  1. You know, I maybe wrong , but I think Ben carson is not totally sane…. there are some loose screws somewhere in his head. Trump is crass, but to me, Ben carson is creepy, clinically creepy.

    • As a surgeon myself growing up with a similar background, I understand some of his frustrations. That being said however, you grow and you learn by interacting with all types of people. I believe that I am a better person today because of those experiences. For some reason, and I agree with you, there is some unidentified lingering doubts, hostilities and/or insecurities that he continues to carry. As a medical professional, many of his actions and statements are simply bitter, rude and bizarre. Those actions say more about him as a person than any of his professional accomplishments…which is truly sad. I could not and will not support him in any way. He is just wrong on so many levels. Just my thoughts.

  2. I saw a recent poll that showed a huge favorability rating for Carson among Republican voters far more than Trump’s. With the growing list of inane comments, I wonder why people have not questioned him more, even Republicans. Comments on evolution, gays, Muslims, guns, German Jews with guns, and so on. To be such a smart person, he has said a litany of less than intelligent things.

    • Oops, I failed to list equating Obamacare with slavery. That one was a hard stretch for me. Saving someone’s life with access to healthcare versus forced and violently controlled servitude.
