Ben Carson Offers THIS Defense Of Trump's Comment On Punishing Women For Abortions

Not surprisingly, Donald Trump is the talk of the day in the media, but this time it's because of a flustered comment he made yesterday to MSNBC's Chris Matthews about punishing women who had abortions if abortion were to be outlawed in America.

When asked by an insistent Matthews what kind of punishment, Trump said, "I don't know. That I don't know. That I don't know. I don't know."

According to CNN, he later walked back that comment, clarifying, "If Congress were to pass legislation making abortion illegal and the federal courts upheld this legislation, or any state were permitted to ban abortion under state and federal law, the doctor or any other person performing this illegal act upon a woman would be held legally responsible, not the woman. The woman is a victim in this case as is the life in her womb."

Ben Carson was quick to come to Trump's defense during a CNN interview, saying, "Bear in mind, I don't believe that he was warned that that question was coming, and I don't think he really had a chance to really think about it. That happens very frequently, and you know, what you develop with experience is how to answer that in a way that is not definitive. You know how politicians are. He has not really learned that — he's not a politician."

What do you think about Trump's comment and his clarification?
