President Barack Obama is one good looking psychopath, according to conservative activist and neurosurgeon Ben Carson.

Carson, who has launched an exploratory committee for a 2016 presidential run, is featured in a new GQ piece titled “What If Sarah Palin Were a Brain Surgeon?”

It begins with an exchange from Obama’s State of the Union address this year.

Carson was watching Obama’s address with Armstrong Williams, “a conservative media impresario who officially serves as Carson’s business manager and who lately has functioned as Carson’s unofficial image-maker and political adviser as well.”

The conversation briefly turned to Obama’s appearance.

He looks good, Williams said. He looks clean. Shirt’s white. The tie. He looks elegant. Like most psychopaths, Carson grumbled. That’s why they’re successful. That’s the way they look. They all look great.

While Carson is no stranger to controversial comments, such as the time he said homosexuality is a choice and prison sex proves it, he may not be too far off in linking the presidency to psychopaths.

For example, Forbes lists “CEO” as the job most desirable to psychopaths.
