Trump says his opponent has a psychological disease
The reason, of course, for this polling question is that current front-runner for the Republican nomination, the former neuro surgeon Ben Carson, has put forward an astonishing theory about their origin. This from Buzzfeed.
..He rejected the widely held belief among archaeologists that most of the pyramids were built to serve as tombs for pharaohs, and suggested that biblical figure Joseph built the pyramids to store grain in preparation for a massive famine. “My own personal theory is that Joseph built the pyramids in order to store grain,” he said. “And all the archaeologists think that they were made for the pharaohs’ graves. But you know, it would have to be something awfully big, if you stop and think about it. And I don’t think it would just disappear over the course of time to store that much grain…”
This comes at a time when Carson’s back story has been coming under intensive scrutiny with suggestions that there was a level of exaggeration. Donald Trump has claimed that his opponent has a “psychological disease”.
As it turns in the PPP polling even Carson’s own supporters supporters didn’t back him on the pyramids.
