what do you know? >> well, he benefited for the longest time from flying under the radar but now he's to coin a phrase somewhere over the radar. now he is suddenly getting very, very closely examined, his present, his past, the statements that he makes, that kind of thing and he clearly does not like that to the point that he's saying, let's move on. and you of course have bernie sanders playing his game which is to say let's not dwell about the past, let's talk about policies, that kind of thing, which is bernie sanders really saying, oh, yeah, pile on him. >> well, you know, and then we heard a little clip of sound from carson a little bit earlier in the show where he said, do you know what, i don't see this happening to other people. they are not getting this kind of scrutiny. is that true, though? it seems like there has been plenty of scrutiny could go around. >> well, yeah. as a matter of fact, i think what ben carson is trying to say is that somehow he is being singled out. i think he calls it by the secular progressive movement of
people who don't really want him to succeed. i think that would surprise people like hillary clinton who of course complained a long time ago about the vast right wing conspiracy. one of the ways that you always val length questions that are being asked is to challenge will the request he ner. >> talk about scrutiny, marco rubio is facing a lot of that. he's saying when it comes to that republican party credit card, here is my statements, in fact, i will give you two years' worth offer them. is that going to clear things up? >> i think it's going to cause people to say, hey, maybe this wasn't to bad, it was a slim move on his part. >> thanks so much, bob. we appreciate you joining us today. just ahead another aladdin with the late robin williams as the genie. is it even possible? find out next.
