|Well, this gif is gonna haunt me for awhile|
On Thursday afternoon insult comic and presidential candidate Donald Trump went on CNN's Show "Erin Burnett OutFront,” and proceeded to attack his sleepy yet apparently ultra-violent opponent Ben Carson. On the show Trump referenced Carson's autobiography, "Gifted Hands" in which Trump recalls a passage where Carson attributes his youthful violent behavior to what he refers to as his "disease," a "pathological temper".
Trump took Carson's admission and ran with it saying..
“That’s a big problem because you don’t cure that … 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.”
That is an insane comparison but it is Donald Trump we are talking about here.
Later in the night in Fort Dodge, Iowa Trump took to the stage for an hour and 35 minutes in what can only be call an unhinged stump speech/performance. In this tour de force The Donald went even further and recounted Carson's tales about attacking his mother with a hammer, a friend with a rock, another with a padlock and a third with a knife. At one point in the midst of his six minute tirade against Carson, Trump again likened him to a "child molester" but took it one step further saying the only cure for that kind of pathology is "death"...
“Carson is an enigma to me... 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.”
“If you’re pathological—there’s no cure for that, folks. There’s no cure for that. If you’re a child molester—a sick puppy—a child molester, there’s no cure for that. There’s only one cure, we don’t want to talk about that cure. That’s the ultimate cure. Well, there’s death, and there’s the other thing.”
Watch it here in all it's ridiculous orange glory...

I am unsure what stuns me more. What Trump said of Carson or the fact the "pathologically diseased" Carson is beating him in the polls to be he Republican presidential candidate.
