CNN hosts stunned as Ben Carson attempts to defend Corey Lewandowski
Ben Carson continues as one of the least helpful surrogates in recent memory with this gem attempting to defend Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski:
Carson defends Lewandowski by telling @JohnBerman "you've probably been charged with something too" To which he responds "I actually havent"

No, Ben … not everyone has “probably been charged with something, too.”
Here’s the video. Check out how the hosts just look at each other, stunned, when Carson makes his accusation:
Then there was the time Ben Carson suggested I committed a crime…on TV.https://t.co/ZZP7tAZ8Lz

And using this rationale, Lewandowski could have stabbed Michelle Fields with a knife as long as it hit her belt buckle.
Also, Ben Carson is a hilariously horrible surrogate. Before he shuffles off into Ignominious obscurity, SNL has to cold open his work.

It's also a lousy defense. https://t.co/7UjTDGwu1G
