This one nonsensical statement from Ben Carson is the best thing to have happened to Twitter in a while.
The candidate has been honing his foreign policy chops recently, which might explain why his counting chops and person-or-country chops utterly failed him while he was discussing what he would do if Russia invaded Estonia at Thursday night’s Republican primary debate.
“Putin is a one-horse country: oil and energy,” Carson asserted as he explained how he would respond to the hypothetical invasion.
The Twitter response was swift and funnier than average:

Hillary is a one-horse color. Paper.

1. Putin is not a country. 2. Putin’s country has more than one horse. 3. Oil and energy are more than one thing. 4. They are not horses.

Anyone know how to punctuate Ben Carson? “Putin is a one-horse country: oil and energy”? “Putin is a one. Horse country, oil, and energy”?
