Carson: ‘Height of Hypocrisy’ for the White House to Call on Turkey to Close Its Border with Syria

Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson ripped the Obama White House for it’s call for Turkey to shut down its southern border with Syria while seeming to have little concern over the United States’ own southern border with Mexico.

“You know, you look at our border – it is completely porous,” Carson said. “Terrorists can come here also. I mean, I was astonished by how little protection there is and all the drugs that are coming through. So for us to sit there and proclaim sanctimoniously that you should close your border while we haven’t done that to protect the American people seems to me the height of hypocrisy.”
