Obama’s White House Just Responded To Trump’s Muslim Plan By Invoking One Massive Word

White House spokesman Josh Earnest stated on Tuesday that Donald Trump is disqualified to be president, based on his proposal to temporarily bar Muslims from entering the country.

At the daily press briefing, he said, “the fact is, the first thing a president does when he or she takes the oath of office is to swear an oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States. And the fact is, what Donald Trump said yesterday disqualifies him from serving as president.”

He added, “And for Republican candidates for president to stand by their pledge to support Mr. Trump. That in an of itself is disqualifying.” 

A reporter followed up asking how Republican candidates and leaders like Speaker Paul Ryan should respond when questioned whether they would support Trump if he were the nominee. “They should say right now they would not support Donald Trump for president,” Earnest said. “What he said is disqualifying. And any Republican who’s too fearful of the Republican base to admit it has no business serving as president either.”

Trump has pledged to support the Republican nominee, which is a prerequisite for participating in the South Carolina primary among others. However, in the wake of the release of his controversial Muslim barring plan, he may have been firing a shot over the Republican Party leadership’s bow when he tweeted on Tuesday that the majority of his supporters would back him if he ran as an independent.

During multiple interviews Tuesday morning, Trump defended his plan, arguing, “We are at war with radical Islam.” He likened his proposal to actions Democrat Pres. Franklin D. Roosevelt took during World War II against those of Japanese ancestry and others living in the United States. Trump made clear that his plan would not apply to Muslim Americans and Muslims already residing legally in the country.

In responding to the question about the candidate’s proposal, Earnest first engaged in some literary flourish to describe his candidacy. “The Trump campaign for months now has had a dustbin-of-history-like quality to it, from the vacuous sloganeering to the outright lies to even the fake hair. The whole carnival-barker routine that we’ve seen for some time now,” he said.

Earnest was clearly trying to brand Trump and, by extension, the entire Republican Party.

 if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.
