Bill O’Reilly asked some really good questions of Ben Carson about his Cruz-spiracy that they purposely misled voters that Carson had dropped out.
He didn’t really answer the question.
It’s rather telling that Carson didn’t answer the question – it seems more like he’d rather blame Cruz than actually get to the bottom of what happened. As it turns out, it was probably this report that did it:
BREAKING: @moody has learned @realbencarson will return to FL following #IAcaucus, will not go to either NH or SC https://t.co/jl8NOY9KEx

With that headline, it really sounds like he’s throwing in the towel. As he later corrected in the evening, he was just “going home for a fresh change of clothes.”
Well, dude, if you’re going to give such poor statements out to the press on a terribly important election night, don’t be shocked when it’s misunderstood.
Ted Cruz apologized for what happened, but did not say it was intentional.
