Vice President Joe Biden said Friday that the "universal ridicule" potential GOP presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson received for saying homosexuality is a choice is a sign of the progress the gay rights movement has made in recent years. Carson told CNN on Wednesday: "A lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight — and when they come out, they're gay. "Seriously, don't misread the political trends in history. Now, every ridiculous assertion from Dr. Carson on -- I mean Jesus, God." The normally verbose vice president, who is also considering a presidential run, had trouble putting his reaction into words saying, "Seriously, don't misread the political trends in history. Now, every ridiculous assertion from Dr. Carson on -- I mean Jesus, God."
