How awkward! The standard bearer of your party reiterates that he believes Islam is a religion that fundamentally hates America, and now you’re asked to defend or refute that idea. What’s a not-quite-identifiably-racist politician to do? Refute for the sake of decency? Defend in case the leader of your party ever becomes President?
Nah. Just talk about “melting pots” till your hosts ears explode and they cut off your mic.
