Ben Carson has a little problem, just two days before the 4th GOP 2016 Presidential debate. He has been caught in his lies about his growing up as poor black kid in Detroit.
He says he attacked another kid with a knife when he was young. That "kid" turned out to be a close relative.
In 1968 when Martin Luther King was assassinated he claims he hid a couple of white kids - in the primarily black Detroit high school he attended - inside a biology lab. Only problem, students interviewed years later claimed they could not remember that as the case. Carson himself cannot remember the names of the students he claims to have hid.
But the kicker comes when Carson recounts his experience - while still in high school - of attending a banquet with General Westmoreland after Carson was named ROTC candidate of the year in Detroit. Carson claims he was offered a "full scholarship" to attend the Army Academy at West Point. The only problem is is that West Point has no records of that ever transpiring or that Carson even initiated an "application" process.
Carson has also recounted of his so-called violent past with very little evidentiary proof to back up those claims.
Fast Forward to his stint at Yale where Carson recounts how his Yale psych professor for his Perceptions 301 class said that the final exam papers had “inadvertently burned,” and that all 150 students would have to retake it. The new exam was much tougher, Carson wrote that everyone walked out but him. Carson then went on to say that later on he was approached by a photographer from the Yale Daily News and his psych professor who Carson claimed told him the "re-test" was a hoax and was only meant to see who was the most honest student. Supposedly the professor gave Carson $10.
