In this Majority Report clip, the venerable Dr. Ben Carson is doing something he’s been doing for quite some time now, which is talking to the press on live television. He realizes that he’s forgotten his luggage in a car nearby or left it somewhere (who knows), and he stops the interview midsentence and runs off to check on it/find it, whatever. The reporter does his best to keep the segment going by pointing to Ben Carson’s childhood home and some neighbors, and just as things seem to be getting on track, Ben Carson comes right back to the interview with absolutely zero shame. No apology whatsoever, just picks it right back up.
