According to reports, Ben Carson actually went after Obama’s blackness and stated in a recent podcast that he feels the president didn’t really grow up black.

Politico’s Glenn Thrush was interviewing Dr. Carson on his Off Message podcast when the Republican displayed his epic tone deafness.

“I…like most Americans I was proud that we broke the color barrier when [Barack Obama] was elected. But I also recognize that his experience and my experience are night and day, different,” said Carson. “He didn’t grow up like I grew up by any stretch of the imagination. Not even close.”

Upon further inquiry, he added, “He’s an African American. He was, you know, raised white. Many of his formative years were spent in Indonesia so for him to, ya know, claim that he identifies with the experience of Black Americans I think is a bit of a stretch.” Note, it was the interviewer who initial emphasized the “African” American, but Carson took the bait.
