Donald Trump Blasts Ben Carson’s Violent Youth Tale: ‘Total Fabrication’ or He Beat His Mother

Trump responds to CNN investigation that found no corroborating evidence to support Carson’s claims of a violent acts as a juvenile

Donald Trump is taking the gloves off when it comes to GOP challenger Ben Carson, going after the former neurosurgeon on Thursday for the growingly questionable stories of his violent youth.

“The Carson story is either a total fabrication or, if true, even worse — trying to hit mother over the head with a hammer or stabbing friend!” Trump tweeted.

The real estate mogul’s criticism comes in response to a CNN investigation that found no corroborating evidence to support Carson’s claims of a violent acts as a juvenile including trying to stab friends and family.

Carson railed against CNN in an interview on Friday morning, but Trump wasn’t satisfied.

“With Ben Carson wanting to hit his mother on head with a hammer, stab a friend and Pyramids built for grain storage — don’t people get it?” he continued.

Trump then hit out at one of his favorite media targets for writing a puff piece.

“Such bad reporting: A puff piece on Ben Carson in the @nytimes states that Carson ‘is trying to solidify his lead.’ But I am #1, easily! Sad” he tweeted.

It looks highly likely that Trump will go after Carson for his childhood violence claims at the next Republican debate on Nov. 10.
