Dr. Ben Carson's Mic Drop Moment In Planned Parenthood Interview

Devastating, calm reason.

On Tuesday afternoon, GOP hopeful Dr. Ben Carson appeared on The Lead with Jake Tapper on CNN to discuss the Planned Parenthood baby parts business model, and made some simple, obvious, but altogether inarguable points. One moment in particular stood out and was featured in a video Tuesday evening by Digitas Daily.

Jake Tapper, who is an excellent and competent interviewer, asked exactly the right question, and Dr. Carson gave exactly the right answer. Tapper asked whether Dr. Carson had an answer to whether defunding Planned Parenthood would be detrimental to people in poor areas based on Planned Parenthood's claim that they are the only provider of women's medical services. Dr. Carson's brief reply is pretty much a conversation ender.

"I thought that they were supposed to be able to get all those things based on Obamacare. Why do we need Planned Parenthood?"

Why indeed.
