Wannabe President Ben Carson Wants Drone Strikes To Deter Immigration

If you thought Donald Trump was bad, this is on a whole new level.

You have to be a special kind of idiot to trump Donald Trump at his own game, making bizarre political statements. And that's exactly what the crazy billionaire's fellow Republican Dr. Ben Carson has managed to do.

Maybe he was stunned by the larger-than-anticipated crowd at his Phoenix rally. Or maybe it was the presence of Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu, whose crazy solutions to stopping illegal immigration might have rubbed off on Carson. 

Whatever the cause, Carson openly floated the idea of using drone strikes at the border to help control migrants, KTVK-TV Phoenix's Dennis Welch reported.

This was no slip of the tongue. Carson hammered his point, reiterating, "The take home point is this. We have excellent military leaders. We need to employ their expertise because this is a war we are fighting. That’s the bottom line."

A hero for his legendary medical career at Johns Hopkins – which he regularly cites as evidence of his past saving lives – Carson's intent to kill people to control immigration could put his reputation at risk.
