Ben Carson‚ÄĒneurosurgeon, Tea Party superstar and potential 2016 Republican presidential candidate‚ÄĒis well-known for his controversial comments, whether he‚Äôs comparing the Affordable Care Act to slavery or claiming that prison makes people gay.

According to GQ, on the night of Obama’s State of the Union address in January, Carson implied that the president was a psychopath as he critiqued the speech from the Capitol Hill home of black conservative Armstrong Williams, his unofficial political adviser.

‚ÄúHe looks good,‚ÄĚ Williams pointed out, according to the site. ‚ÄúHe looks clean. Shirt‚Äôs white. The tie. He looks elegant.‚ÄĚ

‚ÄúLike most psychopaths,‚ÄĚ Carson responded. "That‚Äôs why they‚Äôre successful. That‚Äôs the way they look. They all look great.‚ÄĚ

Later on, Carson went in on the president‚Äôs speech, claiming that he was feeding the American people ‚Äúa lie.‚ÄĚ

‚ÄúHe‚Äôs trying to sell what he thinks is not true! He‚Äôs sitting there saying, ‚ÄėThese Americans are so stupid, I can tell them anything,‚Äô‚ÄĚ Carson said.
