Just as Christmas came, Dick Gregory got ready for a series of shows at the Arlington Improv in Texas. While there the legendary figure spoke about this year’s presdential election with The Tom Joyner Morning Show. As he got into the talk, he didn’t hesitate in sharing his disappointment in the candidates, especially Dr. Ben Carson who he went on to question on why Carson is considered special?
If he (Carson) is so important… you ask this one simple question, how come he’s never been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize? I didn’t say get one, he’s never been nominated.
Dick further talked politics by discussing his pass run for the white house back in 1968.
Had I won then I would’ve asked for a recount. (Laughs) First thing I would do after I got sworn in, I would go back to the White House, I would have dug up that Rose garden and planted me a watermelon patch. (Laughs)
