The Trump campaign created this Lewandowski problem for themselves. What should’ve been a one-day story has become a big problem, and Ben Carson sure isn’t helping.
Here’s Dr. Carson on CNN earlier today:

Yeah, I don’t think “Look, pal, you’ve probably done the same thing” is going to make this go away. Especially if the person you’re accusing hasn’t done the same thing.
Fortunately, Dr. Carson got right back on-message:

When Ben Carson entered the 2016 presidential race, I had a lot of respect for him. I really miss those days.
