From mistaking sex toys for ISIS symbols, to thinking Ben Carson's mom is dead, CNN celebrates a long history of embarrassing live television fiascos.

Jake Tapper of CNN told Carson Tuesday night, “This is the first time I’ve seen you since you lost your mother, and I just wanted to send our deepest condolences on your loss. I know she meant a great deal to you."

“I appreciate that," Carson laughed, "But she actually sprang back. It looked like she was on her death bed. We all went down to say our final goodbyes. Everybody started praying, and she sprang back!”

Tapper responded, "Oh my god! I didn’t get the memo. I just saw the news and said my condolences. Well that’s the best news I’ve heard all day!”

In fairness, with a Republican field that big, it can be hard to keep up with everyone's family affairs.
