#TBT Colin Powell: The really right answer is, what if Obama is a Muslim?


Anu Joshi • Sep 03, 2015

“But the really right answer is, what if [Mr. Obama] is [a Muslim]? Is there something wrong with being a Muslim in this country? The answer is no, that’s not America. Is there something wrong with some seven-year-old Muslim American kid believing that he or she could be president? Yet, I have heard senior members of my own party, drop this suggestion that he’s a Muslim and he might be associated with terrorists. This is not how we should be doing it in America.” (10/19/2008, Meet the Press)
