Carson Ready for GOP Debate: 'It's Not Brain Surgery'
Dr. Ben Carson told Bill O'Reilly tonight that he's not an attention-seeker by nature, but he has a couple things in mind to help stand out at tomorrow's Fox News Republican presidential debate.
Carson said the fact that 50 percent of people don't know who he is is actually a tremendous advantage.
He explained he will be a little more animated and engaging in an attempt to end the narrative that "he's a great doctor, but doesn't know anything about anything else."
"I think we will blow that one out of the water," Carson said, adding that he's not going to use a cheat sheet or notes for the debate.
"It's not brain surgery," he explained.
"I only need to talk about what's true. I don't have to try to remember talking points or the multitude of things that people have told me. I just have to talk about what's true," Carson said. "And I think people will see that."
Do you have one thing that you think will really be a stunner tomorrow? O'Reilly asked.
"Yeah, but I don't want to tell you my stunners now."
