Political Fail of The Day: Ben Carson Doesn't Want Refugees in America, Can't Even Draw a Proper Map

GOP presidential candidate and literal 24/7 sleepwalking man Ben Carson really doesn't want Syrian refugees to be allowed in the United States.

Unfortunately, he can't even draw a map of the country he wants to deny them access to (and be leader of).

His campaign tweeted out a message of support for the dozens of governors who have expressed concern over allowing Syrian refugees into the country following the terrorist attacks in Paris.

From The Washington Post:

As you can see, in Carson's map the states of Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine are moved northeast by about 150 miles or so. Vermont and New York now have hundreds of miles of new beachfront property. Massachusetts shares a border with Canada. Maine straddles what is now the Gulf of Saint Lawrence.

Also, if you look closely at the mid-Atlantic area, you'll see that Virginia's portion of the Delmarva Peninsula is colored red to match Maryland, rather than gray with the rest of Virginia.

Nice job, Ben!

Ben Carson is a neurosurgeon and a frontrunner for the GOP presidential nomination.

He is also a rap legend.

The soft-spoken politico has released a new 60-second radio advertisement that is laid over a pretty dope rap. The $150,000 radio ad buy, called "Freedom," will air for two weeks.

The ad used rapper Aspiring Mogul and is intended to target black youth.

"Reaching them on a level they appreciate and follow and see if we can attract their consciousness about the election," Carson campaign spokesman Doug Watts told ABC News.

"They need to get involved and express their voice through their vote."

Of course, this is also the dude that doesn't believe in evolution and says prison makes people gay ...so...
