Dr. Ben Carson Says “It’s Hard Not To Laugh” At Obama’s Reaction To The VA Scandal


Buckling under intense pressure, President Obama finally answered questions yesterday about the growing VA scandal. At his press conference, Obama called for an investigation into the matter saying, “If these allegation are true” I “will not tolerate it, period.”

Appearing on Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show,” Dr. Ben Carson said, “It’s was hard not to laugh” at Obama’s response, “because we’ve heard this before.”

“I’m not sure he even understands the implications of these things. What are we saying to our troops with the Benghazi situation?” Carson asked. “If you get in trouble and we deem it too dangerous to save you, you’re on your own.”

Earlier this week Fox News host Neil Cavuto asked Dr. Carson if people would die as a result of Obamacare. Dr. Carson said, “Without question. You’re going to have the same kinds of problems” as the VA.
