Dr. Ben Carson went for the jugular against Hillary Clinton last night at the Republican National Convention (RNC), but the mainstream media wasn’t having it.
Carson mentioned the fact that Clinton’s college thesis showed great admiration for Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals,” in which the author dedicates the book to Lucifer.
Here’s what Carson said:
Of course, that was enough for the mainstream media to immediately begin mocking Carson, specifically in an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo.
Cuomo ran to the aid of Clinton in his post-speech interview with the retired neurosurgeon, saying Carson was making it seem “like Hillary Clinton is carrying [the book] around in her back pocket. It’s something she mentioned in 1969 in a thesis.”

And the media mocking of Carson didn’t stop at CNN. Multiple reporters on Twitter openly mocked the neurosurgeon for daring to mention Clinton’s past.

I'm betting that's the first-ever mention of "Lucifer" at a major party convention, courtesy of Ben Carson.

Anyone have "Lucifer" in their convention drinking game? And John Boehner didn't say it. Ben Carson did.
