Jake Tapper offers his condolences to Ben Carson on his mother’s passing – but she’s still alive

Awkward: Jake Tapper was offering his condolences to GOP presidential hopeful Dr. Ben Carson at the conclusion of his interview on The Lead over the passing of his mother, Sonya Carson. However, as Tapper was quick to discover… Carson’s mother didn’t die. The family thought she was on her deathbed, but she “sprang back” and is still living.

Both Tapper and Carson laughed the awkwardness aside, and Tapper declared it the “best news” he had heard all day.
