Not BFFs.

[wonkbar]<a href=""></a>[/wonkbar]Um, Ben Carson is almost as bad at supporting people for president as he is at running for president. We did not actually know that was possible, considering how he is a brain surgeon who got confused by pyramids and how the Israeli government works and also doesn't even seem to remember whether or not he was a common criminal as a child. Oh, and he fell asleep during debates A LOT.

But now he's supporting Donald Trump, kind of.

Here is an interview with Carson on the radio show Kelley & Kafer. It is really, really special:

Why are you jumping up and down and blowing goats in excitement over Donald Trump, Dr. Carson?

It was pragmatism, recognizing that John Kasich cannot win without a brokered convention, which would guarantee a Democrat win. And recognizing that Ted Cruz can bring conservatives, but will have a very difficult time bringing moderates and Democrats. And I think that will be pretty much a guaranteed loss also. So in terms of who can potentially win, that would be Donald Trump. And when I look at the consequences of not winning, it's too horrible to think about.

WHOOOOOOOO! Somebody tell Carson to stop giving Trump tongue-baths on the radio like that!

Now, to understand this next part, you need to realize that one of the hosts, Krista Kafer, is a #NeverTrump lady. Like, she cannot, will not vote for Trump under any circumstances. She would not do it on a boat, she would not do it on a goat Ben Carson is allegedly blowing because he's, again, so excited about Trump.

Kafer says Trump is a bad person and Hillary is a bad person, and Carson replies, "Who among us isn't?" Ben Carson remembers (sort of) that he is a very bad person, because did you hear what a big stabber he is?

Kafer adds, "To consciously vote for a man I know is a bad man ... a liar and a fraud, I could never cast that vote." Ben Carson tries to convince her otherwise:

For me, it's about the children and the grandchildren. If it were just me, I would be completely where Krista is. I would say, "Hey, I got this, I can deal with it." But for them, I can't.

OH, so he actually hates Donald Trump and finds him terrifying as everybody else does, but he hates Hillary more. Ben Carson, you are very bad at this.

Now, does Ben Carson's sleepy love boner for Donald Trump reach far enough to support him if he runs third party?

I would not support anybody who was running a third party.

Man, feel the #TrumpMentum coming out of Ben Carson's mouth!

But don't worry, #JesusWillFixIt. God is going to save America, Carson says, EVEN with Donald Trump in office, because "You wouldn't have chosen Nebuchadnezzar or the Pharaoh" as your leader either, as they were just awful. But God used them to do some #GodPlans and everything was fine, so if it happened in Bible it can happen in America we guess.

[wonkbar]<a href=""></a>[/wonkbar]We can add this interview to all Carson's other resounding endorsements of Trump, like when he said Trump has "major defects" and that there are probably "better people" out there to be president. Or when he said of his endorsement, "Is there another scenario that I would have preferred? Yes — but that scenario isn’t available."

[wonkbar]<a href=""></a>[/wonkbar]Oh and lest we forget, he said we shouldn't demonize Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski for allegedly assaulting ladies, because we've all caught a criminal charge for SOMETHING, right? No?

We need to end this post, as Carson's enthusiasm has overwhelmed us and we need our nap.

'Bella" by Wonkette Operative 'IdiokraticSubpoenaKommissar'

Sunday already, which means a substantial portion of US America is preparing to be astonished/heartbroken/outraged by the series finale of that show with the dragons, while another portion is just going to stay off Twitter for three days because nothing will make any sense. Yr Dok Zoom tends to come very late to trendy things, so get ready for our own thoughts on the gamy thrones show sometime in about 2023, or never. But we'd be glad to tell you just how much we enjoy the brilliance and humanity of the Cartoon Network series "Steven Universe," which debuted in 2013 and we started bingeing on the Hulu last month, late again.

Hell, we still want to talk about that one Mrs Landingham episode of "The West Wing," which we first watched years after it aired (We finally bought our new used car yesterday, and know one thing: don't drive over to the White House to show it off to President Bartlet). We might even get around to reading Infinite Jest someday. We hear it has something to do with a superhero team and a guy named Thanos. So hey, let's talk about culture and missing out and patching together some knowledge of what's happening anyway.

Get Me Roger Stone

Roger Stone, his wife would like you to know, is broke. And he is not dealing with it well. Once in khaki suits, gee, he looked swell, full of that yankee-doodle-dee-dum, but now no one calls him Al anymore and he has to stand on a street corner singing "Brother Can You Spare A Dime?"

Yesterday, the conservative but also kind of Never Trumper site The Bulwark revealed the details of a grifty "fundraising" plea sent out by Stone's wife Nydia, begging supporters to give money to the Stones in order to help them keep up the lifestyle to which they have become accustomed.

It was titled "I am embarrassed to write this."

"Dear Friend," begins the missive. "My husband and I have an urgent new problem and we need your help. I told my husband I was going to write you, one of his most valued supporters. I am embarrassed to write this, but I must."

"Mrs. Roger Stone" tells a tale of woe: FBI agents swooping in on them at the crack of dawn to arrest her husband, a subsequent "fake news" feeding frenzy causing friends and fans to abandon the Stones.

"He laid off all our consultants, contractors and employees, and we have 'pulled in our belts' like so many Americans in 'tight times,'" she wrote, sounding for all the world like a plucky working-class patriot, not the wife of a man who made and lost his fortune lying in the service of power.

She should have been more embarrassed.
