Ben Carson, the former famed neurosurgeon apparently can’t see into the heads of his strongest supporters.
Moments after confirming his endorsement of Donald Trump, Carson supporters rushed to social media where many bashed him for the perceived betrayal.
“I’m absolutely heartbroken that you have chosen this path! It destroys everything I believed about you,” Vicky Snider wrote on Carson’s Facebook page.
“I could not be more disappointed in you Dr. Carson. You are not the person I thought you were,” Lori Nea Trybus wrote on Facebook. “I feel misled and betrayed by you. I thought you had an unwavering moral compass, but your support of Donald Trump proves that you do not.”
“No no no no no!!!!!! Please Dr. Carson no!!! He has made a mockery of all you fought so hard for!!!! I am beyond shocked and disappointed that you would stoop to endorse that wolf-in-sheep’s-clothing……
I am SO disheartened by this!! You didn’t have to endorse anybody, let alone hiM!!,” Debi Sweet wrote on Facebook.
“Well I have just lost all respect I had for you Dr. Carson,” Brenda Koppenhaver wrote on Facebook. “My husband and I were going to vote for you and you had to end your campaign, which we understand, but to we cannot back a schoolyard bully like Donald Trump.”
Carson for his part said that the country is at a crossroads and in the middle of a moral crisis.
“We must be careful not to continue our current path, which is littered with uncertainty at best and ruination at worst,” Carson wrote in a Facebook post. “It is with that in mind that I endorse Donald Trump for President.”
