Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina jumped in to defend Dr. Ben Carson after Donald Trump compared Carson’s temper to the mental issues of a child molester.
“It’s in the book that he’s got a pathological temper,” Trump said during an appearance CNN’s “Out Front” with Erin Burnett, Thursday.
“That’s a big problem because you don’t cure that,” he told Burnett. “As an example: child molesting. You don’t cure these people. You don’t cure a child molester. There’s no cure for it. Pathological, there’s no cure for that.”
“When he says he’s pathological, and he says that in the book, I don’t say that, and again, I’m not saying anything, I’m not saying anything other than pathological is a very serious disease,” he added.
Fiorina took exception in a post on her Facebook page, Thursday.
“Donald, sorry, I’ve got to interrupt again,” she wrote.
“You would know something about pathological,” she continued. “How was that meeting with Putin? Or Wharton? Or your self funded campaign? Anyone can turn a multi-million dollar inheritance into more money, but all the money in the world won’t make you as smart as Ben Carson.”
Social media was abuzz with wildly varying opinions.
Drop Out Carly! https://t.co/HbpwtKLcRR

@theblaze First, let’s ask, what does @realDonaldTrump know about child molesters & how does he know it? Next, why character assassination?

@thehill Nut, zealot, loony, odd, now: child molester. Can’t wait for Mr Atlantic City’s reaction when Ben pulls way ahead.

@thehill You know the old saying. If you can’t find something intelligent to say, find something viciously slanderous to say.

@thehill Carson did what?! Smokin dope is 1 thing but stabbing and hammering requires a regular psychological review for coo coo!

@thehill Appreciate the defense. However, not everyone can take an inheritance and make more money.
