Armstrong Williams, who serves as Ben Carson’s business manager, and who held a notable adviser spot during the former neurosurgeon’s presidential campaign run, slammed Bill and Hillary Clinton as deceptive opportunists who would do anything to get ahead politically.

“[They] will say whatever they need to say and do whatever they need to do to get elected,” Williams said, during a panel discussion at the Al Sharpton National Action Network conference in New York, the Daily Caller reported.

He went on: “We sit here, you hear the race speeches, because they feel that’s what you want to hear today. Everything in America is not always about race.”

Mediaite reported the crowd “promptly booed” at that point.

But Williams went on, telling the audience the Clintons ought to have to work harder to win their support.

“Make these people earn your vote,” he said, the Daily Caller reported. “If it’s Donald Trump, so be it. If it’s Bernie Sanders, so be it. Do not allow the Clintons and the establishment to waltz in here and wave their hand and everything is OK. Let them earn your vote, OK?”

And on being booed, Williams said: “I don’t mind the hisses, because you know the truth when you hear it. Make them earn your vote. You can talk about race. They play the race card, too, as they did in South Carolina against Barack Obama. Don’t get caught up in the short memory. This is a business. They’ll say whatever they need to say and do whatever they need to do to get elected.”

The conference was moderated by Sharpton and included John Podesta, Lawrence O’Donnell and former “Apprentice” contestant Omarosa.
