Roy Moore Spokesman: Muslims Can't Hold Elected Office in US Because "You Have To Swear On A Bible"


In a CNN interview where he said that Roy Moore "probably" believes homosexuality should be illegal, campaign spokesman Ted Crockett learns a civics lesson from Jake Tapper.

JAKE TAPPER, CNN: Judge Moore has said that he doesn't think a Muslim member of Congress should be allowed to be in Congress. Why? Under what part of the Constitution?

TED CROCKETT: Because you have to sweat on the Bible. When you are before -- I had to do it, I'm an elected official three terms. You have to swear on a Bible to be an elected official in the United States of America. [Roy Moore] alleges that a Muslim cannot do that, ethically, swearing on the bible.

JAKE TAPPER, CNN: Uh. You don't have to actually swear on a Christian Bible. You can swear on anything. I don't know if you knew that.

CROCKETT: Ohh no, I swore on the Bible, I done it three times.

TAPPER: I'm sure you have, I'm sure you picked a bible, but the law is not that you have to swear on a Christian bible. That is not the law. You don't know that?

CROCKETT: I know that Donald Trump did it when we made him president.

TAPPER: Because he picked it, because he is a Christian.
