Dr. Ben Carson, who formed an exploratory committee Tuesday for a potential run for president, told CNN’s Chris Cuomo on “New Day” Wednesday that the fact that straight men have sex with other men while in prison proves being gay is a choice.

Cuomo asked if Carson thought being gay was a choice.

“Absolutely,” Carson replied.

“A lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight and when they come out they’re gay,” he continued. “So, did something happen while they were in there? Ask yourself that question.”
