There was no way CNN could have predicted the outcome of their investigation.
Who cares if it's true? Can we try to be objective here and not sound like Trumpets who hanged on to Obama's birther story for years?

Even if Carson lied and I personally don't think he did, Newsflash: politicians lie all the time about their life experiences. Remember Hillary's sniper fire story in Bosnia?

There are dozens of reasons I wouldn't vote for Carson but lying about something that happened 60 years ago wouldn't be one. Besides there is no way to prove he is lying. What a waste of time, why not focus on more important things like his conservative agenda instead of this crap. This is the same nonsense some republicans are trying to use against Hillary. They are trying to make the candidate to look like a liar when they have no way to prove the candidate lied.

Well, but he's still dining out on that story. He tells it in his interviews and in the stump speech.

IF it's fabricated, maybe he should just stop talking about it. I certainly never would have known about it had he not mentioned it on one of the Sunday shows.

Do you think this is the first thing they dug into looking for something? Or do you think when they didn't find something in one spot they looked elsewhere?
Yes, no and yes.

He is not handling this very well. He went back to whining about the unfairness about the media.

I guess the only thing for Dr. Carson to do to satisfy the media about his childhood activities is to stab a reporter on camera. Just a quick stab to the leg.

I wonder how the Marchioness Trump would respond?

He asked if people believed him or IF they though he was a pathological liar "like CNN".

I am thinking the man is a pathological liar.

I have wonderered for a while if he didn't have mental health issues. I think he very well might.

They lie because people like yourself will go out of your way to make excuses up for them

Hillary lies also isn't a valid defense. Hillary has no business even being in the discussion.

This wasn't even a good believable lie. Anyone that would do that will lie about anything.
