As he’s made abundantly clear by now, famed neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson believes God will talk to him about running for president in 2016. As we draw closer to primary season, it appears as though those vague whispers have turned into physical contact.
In a sit-down interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network’s David Brody, Carson suggested God has been gently touching him with his heavenly fingers.
BRODY: How is that conversation going with God about this potential presidential run? Has He grabbed you by the collar yet? I read an article about that.
CARSON: I feel fingers. But, um, it’s mostly me. I have to be sure. And I have a surgical personality which says always look before you leap, and don’t leap before you have to.
BRODY: I do cover the presidential campaign trail. May I potentially see you there soon?
CARSON: I think there is a good chance you might.
The conservative doctor has already made his intentions well-known. Several weeks ago, he aired a 40-minute documentary about himself on various local networks, and Fox News dropped his contributor contract in anticipation of a presidential run.
