Tavis Smiley: Ben Carson ‘Black Bull In a Republican China Shop’

PBS host and author Tavis Smiley dubbed Dr. Ben Carson “a black bull in a Republican china shop” on Thursday’s “O’Reilly Factor” on the Fox News Channel.

Smiley declared, after a debate with anchor Bill O’Reilly over whether Carson had “attacked the president,” “Ben Carson has been respect and revered, not just respected, but revered, admired in black America for years, for these gifted hands that he still possesses. But Ben Carson is, how might I put this, he’s a black bull in Republican china shop. And if he’s not careful, he’s going to do himself irreparable damage. He’s going to do the party damage. And if I were a person in his space, who professed to love Ben Carson, I’d call for an intervention to stop him from doing what he’s doing to himself and his reputation.”
