Ben Carson ‘Thanks’ The Biased Media For Helping Him Raise $3.6 MILLION This Week!
It’s been an absolute roller coaster for Ben Carson as the media has attacked him over previous statements he’s made, then retracted them, then gone on the attack again. For his part, Carson has gone on the offense, hitting the media just as hard as they’ve gone after him.
And it looks like he’ll get the last laugh:
We the People have made 10,000 donations each day this week, raising $3.5M this week alone. Thank you biased media.

The Hill has more details on his huge fundraising haul:
Carson reacted with fury Friday, accusing the media of conducting a “witch hunt” against him.
“Here’s my prediction: My prediction is that all of you guys piling on is actually going to help me, because when I go out to these book signings and I see these thousands of people, they say, ‘Don’t let the media get you down,’ ” he said.
“They understand that this is a witch hunt.”
Carson has pulled in stunning amounts of campaign cash, mostly from small-dollar donors. During the last fundraising quarter, his campaign took in $20.8 million, the most in the GOP field.
That is a heck of a lot of cashola. Maybe Carson should hope for more absurdly ridiculous biased media hits!
