Ben Carson, eerily calm as always, offered a dead-eyed observation Friday: Ted Cruz will eventually come around to Donald Trump, unlikely as it sounds, because they all do, eventually.

Via the Daily Beast’s Gideon Resnick, who spoke to Carson on the phone:

“I would certainly expect that to happen over the course of time,” Carson said of a Cruz endorsement. “Recognize that there are a lot of raw wounds. Not only Sen. Cruz, but a whole host of party regulars will come to recognize the importance of unity.”

Previously, Trump suggested that Cruz’s father played a role in the assassination of JFK, called his wife ugly, and suggested he was not eligible to run for office.

“Water’s nice,” Ben Carson whispers. “Come on in.”
