Ben Carson to endorse Donald Trump. Huge!
NY Times First Draft blog reports that Ben Carson is going to endorse Donald Trump tomorrow.
I say this is huge because he has a lot of respect among a certain segment of evangelicals, and his endorsement of Trump can help with them. And of course, it gives Trump social proof that he desperately needs to counteract all of the negative social proof being generated by the liberal Trump-hating media.
I’m glad there are no hard feelings after Trump made fun of the story in his memoir about being stabbed. I suspect that Trump is right (as a Master Persuader, he’s excellent at detecting BS) and Carson feels guilty about lying in his memoir.
Carson also appears to hate Cruz. Endorsing Trump may be a way to stick it to Cruz. Cruz seems to have that effect on a lot of people.
