Dr. Ben Carson spoke to Megyn Kelly tonight on "The Kelly File" in his first TV interview since officially announcing that he will seek the Republican nomination for president.
Carson revealed that his mother was a huge influence on him, and the most important thing she taught him was to refuse to accept excuses.
"All of us have a lot of obstacles in our lives, a lot of problems," Carson said. "And if we can find an excuse, then we can just wallow in that, and we don't have to do anything about it. And generally, people who always blame somebody else for something are people who don't accomplish very much."
Are we cultivating a victim culture in America now? Megyn asked.
