Carson: President Doesn’t Have ‘Responsibility to Carry Out’ SCOTUS ‘Judicial Law’

Tuesday in an interview with NewsMax TV, when asked about the current gay marriage case before the Supreme Court, former Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon Ben Carson, a candidate for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, downplayed the high court’s role when it rules on the constitutionality of law and declared the executive branch has no responsibility to carry out a “judicial law.”

Carson said, “First of all, we have to understand how the Constitution works. The president is required to carry out the laws of the land. The laws of the land come from the legislative branch. So if the legislative branch creates a law or changes a law, the executive branch has a responsibility to carry it out. It doesn’t say they have the responsibility to carry out a judicial law, and that’s something we need to talk about.”
