While discussing his comment about fighting back should he find himself face-to-face with a maniac gunman in a Sirius XM Radio interview, Republican presidential contender Ben Carson recounted a tale of being held up.
“I have had a gun held on me when I was in a Popeyes‘ organization,” Carson said, referring to the fried chicken fast-food chain, according to CNN. “Guy comes in, put a gun in my ribs. And I just said, ‘I believe that you want the guy behind the counter.'”
Fair enough, it’s certainly a plausible scenario in America.
But don’t tell that to the far left, who insist that Carson cannot possibly be telling the truth — that’s right, move over birthers and 9/11 truthers, America now has Popeyes truthers.
We won’t be props: Oregon shooting victim’s
family will NOT meet with Obama, on principle
The people who preach about tolerance and acceptance took to social media to insist that a conservative black man could not possibly have an appetite for fried chicken.
The stereotypes on display makes you question which party is the party of racists, though more than one envisioned a scene from the Eddie Murphy movie “Coming to America.”
Here’s a sampling from Twitter:
Ben Carson looks like he boils his chicken. I know he lying about being in Popeyes

Ben Carson lying. Popeyes is a gun-free zone. It’s a holy place and everyone knows not to start nothing up in Popeyes.

I’ve been to that Popeyes off Hopkins campus several times. Some damn fine spicy thighs. Have I ever seen Ben Carson there? Nope

Ben Carson definitely seems like a KFC man but let’s pretend he was in Popeyes.

I’ll sooner believe there was a gunman in Popeyes than I will that Ben Carson was in Popeyes

Agreed, there’s no way Ben Carson has ever been inside of a Popeyes. RT @HappyTexans: No way this is true. https://t.co/7JseMJn4C8

The American Public Doesn’t Know Everything That It Should About 9/11. & Ben Carson Has Never Been To Popeyes.

I’m hearing Ben Carson talk about his incident at Popeyes & all I can think about is the scene from ‘Coming to America’ w/ Samuel L. Jackson
