Donald Trump compares Ben Carson's 'pathological' temper to child molesters
"It's in the book that he's got a pathological temper or temperament," Trump told CNN's Erin Burnett, while addressing Carson's memoir."That's a big problem because you don't cure that. They say you don't cure, as an example: child molesting. You don't cure these people. You don't cure a child molester. There's no cure for it. Pathological, there's no cure for that."
In recent days, Trump has repeatedly homed in on the part of the book in which Carson wrote, "I had what I only can label a pathological temper - a disease - and this sickness controlled me, making me totally irrational." Carson said he later had an epiphany and became the famously soft-spoken man he is today.But in four back-to-back Sunday-show interviews, Trump described Carson's "pathological disease" as incurable. Trump has also marveled at Carson for defending the accuracy of his violent-episodes accounts in the face of media scrutiny.
"He said he has 'pathological disease' in the book," Trump said on ABC's "This Week." "When you have pathological disease, that's a very serious problem because that's not something that's cured. That's something that you have to live with. And that's a very serious thing to have to live with."
