In a new GQ profile, renowned neurosurgeon and potential 2016 Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson describes President Obama as a “psychopath” for his skill at lying to the American people.
Carson excoriated Obama while viewing the president during his State of the Union address at the Capitol Hill home of Armstrong Williams, a conservative media figure who has been acting as Carson’s business manager and political advisor as well, GQ’s Jason Zengerle reported.
“He looks good,” Williams said while watching Obama deliver the speech. “He looks clean. Shirt’s white. The tie. He looks elegant.”
“Like most psychopaths,” Carson answered. “That’s why they’re successful. That’s the way they look; they all look great.”
“He faces the same challenges you will face,” Williams told Carson. “He’s gotta convince people to believe him. That’s all he’s doing: selling his narrative.”
“But he knows he’s telling a lie,” Carson shot back. “He’s trying to sell them what he thinks is not true. He’s sitting their saying, ‘These Americans are so stupid I can tell them anything.’ ”
