In response to these, Trump traveled to Iowa where he held a rally. Instead of talking rationally about the subjects at hand, Trump went on a rant against the political system. As the Washington Post reported:
He scoffed at those who have accused him of not understanding foreign policy, saying he knows more about Islamic State terrorists “than the generals do.” He took credit for predicting the threat of Osama bin Laden and being right on the “anchor baby situation,” a position he says “these great geniuses from Harvard Law School” now back. He uttered the word “crap” at least three times, and promised to “bomb the s—” out of oil fields benefiting terrorists. He signed a book for a guy in the audience and then tossed it back at him with a flip: “Here you go, baby. I love you.”
However, the cream of the crop came with a personal attack against Carson himself. Referring to flaws in his autobiography, Trump accused the people of Iowa for being idiots for “believing in this crap.” Trump also made some obvious comparisons between Carson and child molesters.
While some may see this as a last-ditch attempt at getting his numbers up in Iowa, it could also very well be Trump just speaking what he truly believes. As a candidate, that’s a good thing. As a potential President of the United States, it’s horrible.
