    "Cut her mic."

    Apparently it doesn't matter to Carson whether a presidential candidate is a predator.

    Boo hoo
    "Replaying the tape I see it also looks rather bullying"
    I woman, I strong hear me roar. But don't talk over me. Then I need protection.

    "this happens in the workplace all the time, men who talk over women at meetings, who take credit for a woman's idea"
    Welcome to the workplace, men do this to each other.

    Trump and his defenders are unraveling.

    It's about time. I don't have an ounce of sorrow for them.

    Umm, EXCUSE ME? BEN CARSON asked for HER mic to be cut. He was the one who "needed protection".

    That is the equivalent of telling her to shut up. Something guys do to each other over something as simple as a football game.

    This was supposed to be a political discussion, not a bunch of "bros" arguing over [what the **** ever pointless thing people argue over football].

    The football game analogy was to show how petty the things are that men will argue over.

    You can have all the petty arguments you want in a casual setting. Human beings, male and female alike, are supposed to act better than that in a professional setting.

    Have you ever stepped outside? Supposed to be and reality are two very different things.

    Ah yes. The good ol' days of "that depends on what your definition of is, is."

    Don't bother. Most people can't see past their own bias. It's not their fault.

    What is with everything being about "Soviets" or "The Russians" these days? Are they the new "Nazis"?

    It's apt either way. The Soviets rigorously censored the press.

    Okay so what does that have to do with a guest on a show asking for someone elses mic to be cut? He isn't even a host and has no control on the audio board?

    Has it ever mattered in America's history? Even the forefathers were the bastion of wholesomeness. People just didn't talk about it - or if they did they didn't because of the greater good. Politicians on both sides of their respective aisles, back in the day...

    Good, recognizing you have a problem is the first step to recovery.

    Civility and honesty are not the same thing. Not that Trump is capable of either.

    That is exactly the problem today: people making excuses for poor behavior.

    It wasn't Carson's show, he had no right to dictate to the audio board op, and the media have a right to question BS.

    Damn, Dr. Carson hangs out with Giuliani for a few weeks and he turns into him.
