The first step to fixing a problem is to simply acknowledge its existence.

For Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump, a man who regularly refuses acknowledge the existence of women’s rights, the humanity of immigrants, and the basic human rights of people of color, acknowledging that there is a problem is hard. But lucky for Trump, his former-nemesis-turned-errand-boy Ben Carson will do it for him.

During a radio interview with Florida host Joyce Kaufman this week, Carson discussed Trump’s shrimp-fingered addiction to Twitter, after Kaufman lamented about it, saying, “I hope that somebody closes that Twitter account, really.” Said Carson:

“Well, I think he will come to understand. We talk about it, and a number of people have talked about it, including his family. And he knows that it’s a problem. And the first part of solving the problem is recognizing that it exists.”

While the word “problem” is perhaps not large enough to encompass the enormity of garbage that is Trump’s Twitter account, it’s a good thing that at least someone in Camp Trump gets it.

Meanwhile, Carson has been sending out his own grammatically dubious tweets, likely passing the time between interviews with Fox News, during which he must blindly praise a man who once compared him to a child molester.
