The twitter world lost their sh*t the moment Ben Carson compared Hillary to Satan. What did you think about his comments?
During his address to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland on Tuesday, former 2016 GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson linked presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton to ‘Lucifer,’ noting that one of her favorite college professors cited him favorably in his most famous book.
Carson, a retired neurosurgeon with a large following among socially conservative voters, told delegates at the Quicken Loans Arena on Tuesday about Clinton’s admiration for famed community organizer Saul Alinsky – a man who wrote about Lucifer in his 1989 book “Rules for Radicals.”
He starts the comparison at the 3:35 mark.
And here is social media’s take on the statement:
Ben Carson pulled the Lucifer card. I'm out.

Ben Carson just did it: Clinton worships Alinsky worships Lucifer. THANK YOU AND GOODNIGHT.

I'm betting that's the first-ever mention of "Lucifer" at a major party convention, courtesy of Ben Carson.

Ben Carson just said Hillary serves lucifer. Let me repeat. A prime time speaker at RNC Convention accuses other candidate of devil worship

DC pundits mocked Ben Carson’s invocation of Lucifer, but just look at this hail.
