What We Can Learn From Ben Carson’s Dazzling Home Monument To Ben Carson (And Jesus)

Ben Carson Makes Announcement About Seeking Republican Presidential Nomination

Erstwhile neurosurgeon and current GOP candidate Ben Carson invited The Guardian into his home for a “get to know you”-style meeting. We already know plenty about Carson. That is, we know he’s newly fond of controversial statements while justifying his love of guns. He also tends to draw unsavory Holocaust parallels that demonstrate his need for a filter.

We also know that Carson has been accused of bending the truth while illustrating his history with guns, his experience with childhood violence and his West Point scholarship. Still, Carson remains one of the leading GOP candidates, and possibly the only one who could beat Donald Trump to the GOP nomination.

This is where The Guardian‘s Ben Carson feature fills in more blanks. Seth Rogen suspects that Carson may be “totally f*ckin’ bonkers,” and this new information will not change Rogen’s opinion. As it turns out, Carson’s entire home is filled with Ben Carson memorabilia. A brief sampling:

You’ll have to visit The Guardian to see the rest, including a painting of Ben Carson with Jesus. While it’s pretty cool that Carson and Jesus are tight, you may be more impressed with the basement, which is filled with “testaments to himself.” The rest of the house is similarly littered with display cases in honor of Carson’s medical career and — never forget — his Presidential Medal of Freedom. This tells us plenty about Ben Carson, mainly that he’s a big fan of self love. Ben Carson believes in Ben Carson. Will the rest of the country agree? Ben Carson will have to wait for that answer.
