After Dr. Ben Carson criticized Obamacare during a rip-roaring speech at the annual National Prayer Breakfast, he says he received “nastygrams” laced with racial epithets.

Dr. Carson says received lots of “nastygrams” since Prayer Breakfast. ‘How dare you speak about MY president’ and “you are just a N-word.”

Democratic strategist Greg Pinelo called for a fact-check.

Produce them. Prove it. MT @mckaycoppins: Ben Carson says at CPAC thathe received some “nastygrams” from liberals calling him “an N-word.”

@mckaycoppins Ask to see these “nastygrams” and verify that they came from “liberals.”

Evidently he doesn’t spend much time on Twitter.

Carson asked when we reached the point that philosophy is supposed to be tied to skin color.

Dr Carson: Got nastygrams frm ppl upset I attacked Obama. Where did we get to pt you have to have a specific philosophy based on skin color?

Dr. Carson also delivered a one-liner the audience loved:

Ben Carson’s retort to those who say he’s just a brain surgeon, so he can’t understand economics: “It’s not brain surgery.” #CPAC13

So about those hints at a presidential run …
