Ben Carson is a National Embarrassment and Disgrace

Dr. Ben Carson is, without question, a brilliant surgeon and comes across in the media as a gentle, soft-spoken, generally nice guy — the anti-Trump, if you will. But this goes beyond the pale:

“I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation,” Carson said. “I absolutely would not agree with that.”

He did not specify in what way Islam ran counter to constitutional principles.

The word for such a bigoted stance is “un-American,” and it applies. I wonder how Dr. Carson would feel about a politician saying the same thing about an African-American not that long ago; to this day, even. If the vagueness or utter lack of Dr. Carson’s policy proposals and his seemingly dim understanding of world affairs hadn’t already done so, this certainly disqualifies him from the presidency or any other public office. Utterly disgraceful.
