Carson to Trump: "I have plenty of energy"

“I don’t get into the mud pit,” Carson, a retired neurosurgeon, said in a partial transcript of an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press” made available by the network ahead of Sunday’s broadcast. “I do have a tendency to be relaxed. I wasn’t always like that. There was a time when I was, you know, very volatile.”
Carson, 64, said that as a teenager he would go after people “with rocks, and bricks, and baseball bats, and hammers.” At age 14, growing up poor in Detroit, he tried to stab a classmate with a camping knife . “Fortunately, you know, my life has been changed. And I’m a very different person now,” said Carson…

Carson agreed with a suggestion that people mistake his soft-spoken manner for a lack of energy. “I have plenty of energy,” he said. “I will tell you, in terms of energy, I’m not sure that there’s anybody else running who’s spent 18 or 20 hours intently operating on somebody.”
