Responding to Donald Trump’s charge that he is “super low energy,” surging GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson reminded the world on Meet the Press that he once tried to stab a friend over a petty dispute.
To be fair, Carson first cited his work as a neurosurgeon, in which he might spend “18 or 20 hours intently operating on somebody,” to demonstrate his abundance of energy.
“I do have a tendency to be relaxed,” Carson continued. “I wasn’t always like that. There was a time when I was, you know, very volatile.”
“When was that?” interviewer Chuck Todd asked.
“As a teenager.” Carson said. “I would go after people with rocks, and bricks, and baseball bats, and hammers. And, of course, many people know the story when I was 14 and I tried to stab someone. And, you know, fortunately, you know, my life has been changed. And I’m a very different person now.”
Given that Republican voters in Iowa don’t seem to mind Carson’s “volatile” past, I can only imagine Trump’s response: “As president, I will be so good at almost stabbing people, your head will spin.”
