Wednesday on CNN’s “New Day,” in reacting to his rival Dr. Ben Carson’s controversial comments about the Oregon shooting, Republican presidential candidate Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) expressed his skepticism in questioning the wisdom of people who have lost their lives. Carson said yesterday on Fox News, “Not only would I probably not cooperate with him, I would not just stand there and let him shoot me. I would say hey guys everybody attack him, he may shoot me approximate but he can’t get us all.” In response, Graham said, “I think Mr. Carson has no idea what he would do. You know I’ve been in the military for a very long time. I’ve never been a front line soldier by any means. But I can tell you this. You don’t know what’s — like during the Holocaust. You are overwhelmed. All I can say is that’s not what we need to be saying as leaders of the country. I’m glad President Obama went to see these people. I just don’t think that is the road to go down in terms of questioning people who have lost their lives, because you have no idea what you would do. ” Follow Pam Key

Carson Dismisses ‘Political Correctness’ Criticism Over Comment on Oregon Shooting

Wednesday on Fox News Channels, “America’s Newsroom,” Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson addressed the controversy over his remarks that he would have fought back against the Oregon shooter even if that meant sacrificing himself. When asked if his comments were insensitive, Carson said it is a “simple concept” that “if you know someone is going to kill you and they are going to systematic kill you one by one why wait for them to do it?” Carson said, “We are living in a culture where you have a group of people who just sit there — they don’t try to listen to what you are saying. They are trying to find a defect so they can cause more division. They are trying to divide our nation into factions, war on women, age wars, income wars, religious wars, race wars, you name it. Any time there is an opportunity to drive wedges down. I believe that the American people are smarter than and they will not allow themselves to be manipulated as much as they have in the past.

Wednesday on CNN’s “New Day,” veteran journalist Carl Bernstein weighed in on the controversy surrounding Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server during her tenure as secretary of state. Host Chris Cuomo asked Bernstein if Clinton was evading the truth more than other politicians, to which Bernstein said, “Politicians lie.” “We don’t know except in terms of judging individual candidates,” Bernstein replied. “Politicians lie. Hillary Clinton has been around public life for almost 40 years now and what we see is whenever she is in any kind of trouble, she is unwilling to open up and be transparent. It has dogged her for years and years, and right now it’s the biggest problem with her campaign.” As for the server, Bernstein argued it “solidified the impression” she was dishonest, as some polling as indicated. “The server is what — the server question is what has solidified this impression,” Bernstein said. “Because she’s been less than truthful. She’s been less than open. She has looked for all kinds of excuses, much like she did when she was in the White House as first lady and the travel office debate came up — something that should
