Carson Serves Up Perfect Retort To Anchor On Islam: ‘Why Do You Guys Always Leave That Part Out?’

The media continues to try to get Ben Carson to back down from the comments he made last Sunday about not advocating a Muslim to be President of the United States. While appearing as a guest on ABC’s This Week on Sunday, host Martha Raddatz asked Carson multiple questions on the subject. “I want to go back to your controversial comments on the possibility of a Muslim president,” she said. “The question seemed quite clear. The question was, should a president’s faith mattered? You said, “I guess it depends on what that faith is.’ The question was, ‘So, do you believe Islam is consistent with the Constitution?’ And you said, ‘No, I do not. I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation. I absolutely would not agree with that.’ Do you stand by that now?,” Raddatz wondered. Carson responded: “Well, first of all, you know what I said is on a transcript and it’s there for anybody to see.” “I’m reading the transcript Dr. Carson, that’s exactly what you said,” Raddatz interjected. “Read the paragraph before that. Where I said, anybody, it doesn’t matter what their religious background, if they accept American values and principles and are willing to subjugate their religious beliefs to our Constitution, I have no problem with them. Why do you guys always leave that out, I wonder?,” the candidate questioned.
