John Hopkins University surgeon, Dr. Ben Carson, who shot to instant fame for calling out President Obama on health care reform and tax policy at this year’s National Prayer Breakfast, has officially screwed the pooch. During an interview on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show, Carson compared gay marriage to bestiality and pedophilia.
Some conservatives had begun to discuss Dr. Carson as a future White House contender after the prayer breakfast. I suspect we will be hearing much less of that talk now.
In a related note, students at Johns Hopkins have started a petition to remove Ben Carson as the commencement speaker for their upcoming graduating class.
See his effort at an apology below on CNN.
