Carson Reacts to Media's 'Smear Campaign': 'Let Them Play Their Silly Games'
On "The Kelly File" tonight, Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson responded to new media accusations about his life story and questions about his lack of political experience.
Overnight, Carson posted a lengthy defense on Facebook in response to those challenging his readiness for office.
Carson explained to Megyn Kelly that he wanted to point out the recklessness of the media and the political class, who claim that they have all the answers.
"But all they've done is run us into the ground," Carson said. "It's time for something different."
As for recent accusations in the media that he fabricated parts of his compelling life story, including that he had a "pathological temper" as a young man, Carson said this is merely a smear campaign from the "ruthless" media.
"Let them go ahead and play their silly games. We have much more important things to do."
