• Ben Carson Defends Calling Obama A ‘Psychopath’: He Can ‘Tell A Lie To Your Face’

    Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson defended comparing President Barack Obama to a psychopath during a CNBC interview on Friday and accused him of lying about the unemployment rate.

    Carson, a retired pediatric neurosurgeon and conservative author, said his characterization was justified because the president appears to comfortably lie to the public. He cited the unemployment rate as an example of this.

    “Obama, you referred to him as a psychopath,” Hardwood noted. “What did you mean by that?”

    “I said he reminds you of a psychopath,” Carson corrected.

    “And tell me how.”

    “Because they tend to be extremely smooth, charming people, who can tell a lie to your face with complete — it looks like sincerity, even though they know it’s a lie,” Carson said.

    “Do you think he’s a liar?” Harwood pressed.

    “I think he knows full well the unemployment rate is not 5.5 percent,” Carson replied. “He knows that. He knows that people who are not well-informed will swallow it hook, line and sinker, even though they’re sitting there in the city and can’t find a job.”
