Graham: Carson ‘Questioning People Who Have Lost Their Lives,’ ‘Glad’ Obama ‘Went to See These People’

Wednesday on CNN’s “New Day,” in reacting to his rival Dr. Ben Carson’s controversial comments about the Oregon shooting, Republican presidential candidate Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) expressed his skepticism in questioning the wisdom of people who have lost their lives.

Carson said yesterday on Fox News, “Not only would I probably not cooperate with him, I would not just stand there and let him shoot me. I would say hey guys everybody attack him, he may shoot me approximate but he can’t get us all.”

In response, Graham said, “I think Mr. Carson has no idea what he would do. You know I’ve been in the military for a very long time. I’ve never been a front line soldier by any means. But I can tell you this. You don’t know what’s — like during the Holocaust. You are overwhelmed. All I can say is that’s not what we need to be saying as leaders of the country. I’m glad President Obama went to see these people. I just don’t think that is the road to go down in terms of questioning people who have lost their lives, because you have no idea what you would do. ”
