Jake Tapper had an eight-minute-plus interview with Ben Carson on Sunday. Breitbart and the London Daily News say a Carson staffer pulled the plug when Tapper kept asking about that strawman Muslim running for president. But I just think the tome really was up. But what do I know?
The Muslim running for president nontroversy is a George Soros-concocted ruse to paint the only black candidate in the race as racist. Chuck Todd used the reputation of NBC News to push this leftist nonsense and really, NBC had more credibility under Brian Williams. But Tapper allowed Carson to 'splain himself.
From the London Daily Mail:
'I would not advocate we put a Muslim in charge of this nation, I absolutely would not agree with that,' Carson said last Sunday on Meet the Press.
To Tapper, Carson first requested that people go back and look at the transcript, before doubling down on what he said.
'I would have problems with somebody who embraced all the doctrines associated with Islam,' Carson said, citing later in the interview that he objected to the portions of Islam that tell practitioners how to treat women and how to treat people of different faiths. 'That they can be dominated,' Carson explained.
Tapper suggested that the candidate was singling out Muslims as people who would put their religion ahead of the constitution or automatically embrace a theocracy in the United States.
'I think the statement stands,' Carson said. 'Is it possible that maybe the media thinks it's a bigger deal than the American people do? Because American people, the majority of them, agree and they understand exactly what I'm saying.'
Tapper suggested the American people who agreed with Carson were ones who didn't believe Muslims could be patriotic.
'Of course Muslims can be patriotic,' Carson said, but he still noted that Muslims would need to 'reject the tenets of Islam' to be president of the United States.Carson is correct. Most Americans know the Koran is counter to the Constitution.
