You might want to sit down for this. Since at least 2009, Ben Carson has had a painting of him and Jesus hanging in his house. The New York Post has the scoop:
Anyone who thought Ben Carson wasn’t being truthful when he said the person he’d most like to share a drink with is Jesus clearly has not been inside the Republican presidential hopeful’s home. Photos taken inside the pediatric surgeon’s residence in Upperco, Md., in November 2014 reveal he possessed a rendering of himself seated next to a smiling Jesus Christ.
Of course, people freaked out. Check out this stupid statement from a far left website:
Carson’s house is like something out of Saddam Hussein’s palace: pictures of himself marked by weird historic fantasy role play.
So… follow this logic with me for a second. Carson is like Saddam… because he has a painting of him and Jesus. (You know how much d Saddam loved Jesus, don’t you?)
Anyway, Carson responded like he always does — with common sense:
“We are very spiritual people, so you will see a lot of Bibles around the house and things that are indicative of that,” Carson, who identifies himself as a Seventh Day Adventist, told the magazine while pointing at the portrait.
“I don’t have to be politically correct here.”
