Wow, when Ben Carson is the voice of reason, you know things have become crazy!
In a sharp reversal, Carson was asked by CNN’s Jake Tapper about one of Trump’s pet conspiracy theories…birtherism. Tapper asked Carson if perhaps Trump’s outreach to black voters would go better if he acknowledged that President Obama was not, in fact, born in Kenya and apologized for being a driver of the patently racist theory.
Carson, after briefly looking like he might fall asleep, agreed that Trump should apologize.

@SopanDeb not only that — he categorized birtherism under Hate & Rancor
