Ben Carson: I Do Not Believe a Muslim Should Be President (VIDEO)
Republican Presidential candidate Ben Carson was on Meet the Press Sunday morning and took Islamophobia to a whole new low. When asked by host Chuck Todd if he believed a Muslim should be President of the United States Dr. Carson did not hesitate.
"I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation. I absolutely would not agree with that."
He went on to explain that he thought Islam was "incompatible with the Constitution." He would not explain how it would be incompatible, nor would NBC's Chuck Todd bother to ask.
Dr. Carson has been near the top of the Republican field in almost every recent poll, gaining on frontrunner Donald Trump. Earlier in the show Mr. Todd also asked Donald Trump if he would be comfortable with a Muslim president.
"It's something that at some point could happen." Trump said, "Would I be comfortable? I don't know if we have to address it right now."
Trump would finish off with a nice dog whistle when Todd asked him point blank again if we should have a Muslim president.
"Some say we already have", Trump said under his breath.
