• Conan: Ben Carson Wants to ‘Go Back to The Way Things Were 200 Years Ago’

    Pediatric Neurosurgeon and Tea Party favorite Ben Carson officially threw his hat into the 2016 presidential race on Monday and the left has since had a field day smearing him for being African American and conservative.

    Conan O’Brien used the occasion of Carson’s announcement to mock Carson’s conservative ideology on his late night TBS program.

    “As a neurosurgeon, who’s also a member of the Tea Party, Carson’s specialty is removing that part of the brain that believes in climate change,” O’Brien joked.

    O’Brien claimed Carson wants to return America to the Pre-Civil War era (you know, back to the days when Democrats fought abolition and the Civil War to keep blacks enslaved, just before Dems formed the KKK and then passed Jim Crow laws).

    He is “an African-American and also a member of the Tea Party,” Conan said, “Yeah, making him the only African-American who wants to go back to the way things were 200 years ago.”

    “Why can’t we get back to those days?” the host added.
