Carson’s Team is tired of CNN’s Tapper distorting interview; tells network interview is over!

During a recent interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, GOP Presidential hopeful Ben Carson clarified his stance that he does not think a devout Muslim could be President of the United States and follow the Constitution.

Here’s part of their exchange (some portions omitted):

Tapper: “Would you problems with somebody who embraced all the doctrines associated with Islam [being president of the United States]?”

Carson: “If they are not willing to reject Sharia and all the portions of it that are talked about in the Quran — if they are not willing to reject that, and subject that to American values and the Constitution, then of course, I would.”

Tapper: “You seem to be signing out Muslims as individuals who automatically, as a knee-jerk, would put their religion ahead of the country,” Tapper said to Carson. “I think that offended a lot of people, including a lot of patriotic Muslims.”

Tapper: “You’re an African-American. You know what it’s like for people to make false assumptions about you,” Tapper said. “And you seem to be doing the same thing with Muslims. … You’re assuming that Muslim Americans put their religion ahead of the country.”

Carson: “I’m assuming that if you accept all the tenets of Islam that you would have a very difficult time abiding under the Constitution of the United States”

Following this, Carson’s campaign manager can be heard saying, “This interview is over.”
