Far too often, the voice of reason goes unheard in politics. That’s why its always refreshing when that voice can be heard clearly and given the time of day. Thankfully, Ben Carson gave a truthful valuation of Democrats’ lust for impeachment which doubled as a slap of shame.
If there’s any sort of practical reasoning behind the impeachment of former President Donald Trump, Dr. Ben Carson says, it’s because Democratic lawmakers want to get their inner third-grader out of their system.
Appearing Tuesday on Fox News, the former head of the Department of Housing and Urban Development said that the impeachment and upcoming trial was designed to “punish” Trump without any kind of practical benefit.
Carson was commenting on a story involving Dr. Deborah Birx, the former head of the Trump White House coronavirus task force, who said that there was “a parallel [COVID] data stream coming into the White House that were not transparently utilized” — and was a bit peeved at the immature tone of the remarks.
“What is a little troubling is people are always finding ways to stir up the problem so that we take our eyes off of the real issue,” Carson said.
“We will never solve problems if we keep pointing fingers at each other saying, ‘You did this. You did that. Now I must retaliate against you.’
