American Family Association radio host Sandy Rios claimed today that President Obama is an "atheist" who has "Muslim sympathies" (video below).
Rios was fielding a call from a caller named “Dave” who wanted to see a "Ted Cruz–Ben Carson ticket." Dave added that in eight years he would "love to see Ben Carson be the first black president instead of a Muslim president,” notes RightWingWatch.org.
The jab at President Obama wasn't missed by Rios who added:
You know I, one thing, I, the Muslim president thing, we know that he loves the Muslim community and he’s certainly sympathetic and he loves the call to prayer and we’ll say no more, we don’t know. I kind of think he’s an atheist, to be honest with you, Dave, with Muslim sympathies, I always need to clarify that.
President Obama has said he is a Christian on multiple occasions, as reported by The Jerusalem Post, ABC News, Patheos.com, Newsweek and The Washington Post.
As far as Muslim sympathies, The Intercept reported in 2014 that President Obama had ordered bombings in seven Muslim countries while in office.
