Ben Carson Caught In West Point Lie
Ben Carson is caught in yet another lie. He is walking joke. And we all know late night will make him into one over this week’s many off-the-wall comments.
“Ben Carson’s campaign on Friday admitted, in a response to an inquiry from Politico, that a central point in his inspirational personal story was fabricated: his application and acceptance into the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.”
Let us be honest about something that is quite clear.
Piously-contrived Carson does not have the character that he wants us to think he has.
“The academy has occupied a central place in Carson’s tale for years. According to a story told in a Carson book, Gifted Hands, the then-17 year old was introduced in 1969 to Gen. William Westmoreland, who had just ended his command of U.S. forces in Vietnam, and the two dined together. That meeting, according to Carson’s telling, was followed by a ‘full scholarship’ to the military academy.”
“West Point, however, has no record of Carson applying, much less being extended admission.”
