GOP front-runner Donald Trump tore into Ben Carson, his nearest rival for the Republican nomination, during a 95-minute speech in Fort Dodge, Iowa Thursday night, calling him a liar over claims made about his childhood and calling Iowa voters and Americans "stupid" for believing him and putting him in first place in many polls.

"How stupid are the people of Iowa?" Trump said in the speech, reports The Washington Post. "How stupid are the people of the country to believe this crap?"

"Let me tell you something: If I did the stuff he said he did, I wouldn't be here right now," he said. "It would have been over. It would have been over. OK? It would have been totally over. So that's who is in second place, and I don't get it."

The Post reports that Trump's speech started out roughly from the beginning, as he was nearly 40 minutes late and promised to take audience questions. Instead, he spoke for 95 minutes, including making fun of people who say he does not understand foreign policy, as he knows more about the Islamic State "than the generals do" before promising to "bomb the s---" out of ISIS-controlled oil fields.

But his most pointed barbs were about Carson, his nearest rival, even though he also called rival Carly Fiorina "Carly whatever-the-hell-her-name-is," said Democratic front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton is playing the "woman's card" and Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., is "weak like a baby."

But then he turned his ire on Carson, attacking him for 10 minutes and saying he has a "pathological disease" that is similar to that of a child molester, and as the attack went on, the initially raucous community college audience grew quiet, The Post reports.

Carson has come under fire in recent days for statements he'd made in his autobiography, "Gifted Hands," in which he wrote that he had a "pathological" temper as a young man, and that he'd tried to hit his mother with a hammer, hit a friend with a padlock, and that he'd tried to stab a friend, but the knife was stopped by the friend's belt buckle.

"And I don't want a person that's got pathological disease, I don't want it," Trump said, reports Politico.  "Now, I'm not saying he's got it. He said it. This isn't something I'm saying — he's a pathological liar, I'm not saying it. He said he's got pathological disease. He actually said 'pathological temper,' and then he defined it as 'disease,' so he said he has 'pathological disease.' Now if you're pathological, there's no cure for that, folks. OK? There's no cure for that."

Earlier in the day, Trump compared Carson's "pathological" issues to those of child molesters, and Thursday night repeated the claim, telling the crowd that "there's only one cure [for child molesters] ... We don't want to talk about that cure."

Trump also railed about Carson being the sort of person who would attack his own mother, reports The Post, and said that a belt buckle would not stop a blade, pantomiming a knife attack on his own belt buckle, saying it would not stop a knife.

"Anybody have a knife?" Trump asked the audience. "You want to try it on me?"

Trump also said he does not believe Carson's statements that the violent impulses ended after the attempted stabbing, when he went into a school bathroom and came out a few hours later and changed his life because of God.

"He goes into the bathroom for a couple of hours and he comes out and now he's religious," Trump told the crowd. "And the people of Iowa believe him. Give me a break. Give me a break. It doesn't happen that way. It doesn't happen that way. Don't be fools, okay?"

Trump also defended his plan for immigration reform and for deporting millions of illegal immigrants, telling the crowd that other countries have strict punishments for people who illegally cross their borders. Afghanistan shoots people, Canada fines them $5,000, and North Korea sentences illegal immigrants to 12 years of hard labor, he said.

"If you cross the United States border illegally you get a job, you get a driver's license … you get food stamps, you get a place to live, you get health care, housing, child benefits and in many cases education," Trump said. "You wonder why we're a debtor nation. You wonder why our country is going to hell."

Trump also attacked the media, calling journalists "scum and garbage," and wrapped up the speech with a final thought: "It's sad in many ways because we're talking about so many negative topics, but in certain ways it's beautiful. It's beautiful."
