In case you haven't been keeping up with the rotating cast of guys who want to get the Republican nomination, Ben Carson is in the lead and a retired brain surgeon. So he should be pretty smart, right? Well, an old video surfaced where Ben said the pyramids weren't built as elaborate tombs for ancient Egyptian kings, but were instead built for grain storage. Yep, just giant mammoth silos that happened to have mummies in them. Huh? Whaa?
This odd statement led Twitter to do what it does best -- troll the shit out of the guy. You probably won't find these "facts" on Ben Carson's Wikipedia page, but #BenCarsonWikipedia has been trending and is a perfect display of the internet mocking the dumb shit that politicians say.
