Ben Carson just left political universe STUNNED

Ben Carson found himself in the awkward position of having to defend his decision to endorse Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump, and his response has some on social media suggesting that the retired neurosurgeon may be “the biggest fool of the century.”

Carson was asked during an interview with Yahoo News and Finance anchor Bianna Golodryga how he could support Trump when the real-estate tycoon questioned his intellect and compared him to a child molester.

“I understand politics, and in particular, the politics of personal destruction,” Carson replied.

“And you have to admit, to some degree, it did work,” he added with a chuckle. “A lot of people believed him.”

Alrighty then.

Social media went nuts over the reply. In addition to calling Carson a “fool,” there were plenty of questions about what kind of drugs the good doctor has access to.

Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
