Oh, Ben Carson. Sweetheart, he may be, but the man is never short on gaffes.

On Fox News’ Outnumbered Tuesday, Dr. Carson, former Republican presidential contender, now Donald Trump spokesman had some interesting things to say about ambitious individuals:

“People who are very ambitious and who will do whatever it takes in order to achieve their goals are people that probably should not be President of the United States,” said Carson.

“That’s the only way to become President!” said Melissa Francis.

Now I can understand that self-serving individuals aren’t ideal presidents because no good leader is selfish. But resolute goal-making and the ability to follow through are essential components of any good leader so I’m not quite sure where Carson is getting this whole ambition is a negative thing. Sounds a little too social justicey for my tastes.
