Donald Trump Compares 'Pathological' Ben Carson To A Child Molester

Ben Carson interviewed before a campaign rally in Phoenix, Arizona

Donald Trump has attacked Republican presidential rival candidate Ben Carson, telling an Iowa audience on Nov. 12 that Carson admitted to being "pathological" in his autobiography.

"He said that he's pathological and that he's got basically pathological disease," Trump said, according to the Huffington Post. "Now he wrote this, I guess before he was running for office or thought that he was running for office, and I don't want a person that's got pathological disease. I don't want it."

Carson's memoir, "Gifted Hands," describes the former neurosurgeon's younger self as angry man with his fair share of demons. Before he changed his ways, he reportedly attacked his mother and several friends, including one hotly debated instance where Carson said he unsuccessfully tried to stab someone.

"Now here's the beauty of all - he took a knife and he went after a friend and he lunged, he lunged that knife into the stomach of his friends, but lo and behold it hit the belt, it hit the belt, and the knife broke," Trump said. "Give me a break..."

The billionaire businessman didn't stop there, however, and even compared Carson to a child molester:

"If you're pathological there's no cure for that folks...if you're a child molester, a sick puppy, you're a child molester, there's no cure for that. There's only one cure, we don't to talk about that cure. That's the ultimate cure. No there's two, there's death and there's the other thing. But if you're a child molester there's no cure, they can't stop you. Pathological, there's no cure. Now he said he was pathological, okay."

Trump went on to explain that he does not understand why Carson is so popular when "he said terrible things about himself" in his book.

After Trump's harsh words circulated, Carson let reporters know that he intends to take the high road.

"It's not the kind of dialog that I would ever engage in and I'm hopeful that his advisers will help him to understand the word 'pathological' and know that that does not connote incurable," Carson said on Nov. 13, according to CNN. "It simply describes something that is highly abnormal and something that fortunately I've been able to be delivered from for half a century now."
