Glenn Beck Says Ben Carson's Prison Sex Comment Is 'The Dumbest Thing I've Ever Heard'

Glenn Beck has been traveling for the past few days and away from his radio studio, meaning that his daily radio program has been audio-only for most of the week.  On today's broadcast, Beck addressed Ben Carson's recent statement that prison sex proves that homosexuality is a choice and declared that Carson's possible presidential campaign is now over because his statement was "the dumbest thing I've ever heard."

"Goodbye to his presidential career," Beck said. "It's over. It's over. There is no way to recover from that. That just sounds like a lunatic ... That is just a ridiculous statement on a million fronts. A ridiculous statement."

"It's not just that he didn't see [the question] coming," Beck continued. "It's that he just thought that was a good answer. That was good enough for him. Just [imagine] I'm at a cocktail party and I'm talking to a friend and they say 'well yeah, you know, you go to prison and you're straight, you get out and you're gay,' don't you look at your friend — I don't care if he's the guy who works at the 7-Eleven and he's not running for president ever — don't you go, 'That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard'?"
