• Trump: Carson Said He Has A ‘Pathological Disease,’ ‘There Is No Cure For That’

    Donald Trump declared Thursday night at a rally in Fort Dodge, Iowa that “the gloves are a little bit off” now in the presidential race and railed against his Republican presidential rivals .

    The real estate magnate told the jam-packed crowd that he’s hopeful that “the guys on the end” will get out of the race.

    “Why are these people staying? George Pataki?” Trump said of the former New York governor. “He’s got nothing.”

    Lindsey Graham “talks tough,” Trump charged, “but we’ll end up with World War II over Syria.

    Marco Rubio is “not tough enough to be president,” he warned. He called the Florida Senator “weak like a baby on immigration” and then credited himself for killing Jeb Bush’s campaign by calling him “low energy.” He abstained from attacking Sen. Ted Cruz an said he will “save that for when [Cruz] gets nasty.”

    But, he excoriated retired neurologist Ben Carson, who has eclipsed Trump in a number of polls.

    “Carson is an enigma to me,” Trump said. “He wrote a book and in the book he said terrible things about himself. He said that he’s ‘pathological’ and that he’s got, basically, pathological disease… I don’t want a person that’s got pathological disease.”

    ‘I am not saying it, he’s said it. If you are pathological there is no cure for that,” Trump warned.

    Trump said he was stunned by Carson’s ad in his autobiography of trying to hit his mother in the head with a hammer and hit his friend in the face with a padlock. He also said he doesn’t believe Carson’s account of trying to stab a friend and questioned how a belt buckle could possibly thwart a lunging knife and break the blade.

    “He went after a friend and he lunged that knife into the stomach of his friend. But low and behold, it hit the belt,” Trump mocked. “It hit the belt and the knife broke. Give me a break. Amazingly the belt stayed totally flat. And the knife broke.”

    Trump wondered how Carson could be doing well in the polls after his admissions of violence and pathology.

    “How stupid are the people of Iowa?” he asked. ” How stupid are the people of the country to believe this crap?”

    The billionaire businessman  also pledged in his 95 minute speech to bring jobs back to the U.S. if he is elected, restore the use of the words “Merry Christmas” — which he said isn’t used anymore, and “bomb the s—” out of areas controlled by the Islamic State, apart from taking shots at his rivals.

    His criticism of  Carson the other GOP candidates begins at the 1:25 mark in the video above.
