Carson on Trump: Saying Mean Things Has Nothing to Do with Political Correctness

Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” Republican presidential candidate and former Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon Ben Carson discussed Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s comments about Megyn Kelly “bleeding.”

Carson said, “Well, I think that may be difference between political correctness and courteous speech. There is a difference. What bothers me is when people say, you know, you can’t say this word, you can’t say this phrase, you can’t even think that, you can’t express this. And it’s very difficult for people to have honest conversation if they can’t express themselves. But no way do I advocate saying mean things about people. that has nothing to do with political correctness.”

He added, “I haven’t heard his specific comments but I’ve heard about them. and they certainly would not be the kinds of things that I would engage in.”
