CNN’s Tapper deliberately fails to comprehend

It is established fact that Sharia Law, required in Muslim countries and of individual followers worldwide, is an inseparable unity of; law, government, and religion directly contrary to Common Law and the U.S. Constitution which both separate the three.

Carson was asked to clarify an earlier statement saying he would “have problems with somebody who embraced all the doctrines associated with Islam.”

“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 [have problems],” Carson said.

Carson suggested the “media” think his comments more newsworthy than the American people.

“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.”

“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,” Carson shot back.

Immediately after Carson’s answer, the voice of Carson’s campaign manager could be heard off camera stating, “This interview is over.”
