“I can’t understand what he’s saying half the time”

While calling Carson a “lovely man” and a “great doctor,” Graham questioned his qualifications to be president.

“I can’t understand what he’s saying half the time,” Graham said of the retired neurosurgeon during an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

“He’s a brilliant guy, but I don’t think he has a clue about what’s going on in the Mideast,” the Republican White House hopeful added.

Graham also dismissed front-runner Donald Trump’s chances of winning the Republican nomination.

“At the end of the day, there’s a process,” he said. “It’s Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina. People are eventually going to vote.”
