Ben Carson: Delegate Rules are Like Jim Crow

Ben Carson [1], just stop, please!

Appearing on MSNBC, the former presidential candidate argued that just because a law or rules are in place doesn’t mean they are right, pointing to Jim Crow laws during the era of racial segregation. Carson then went on to question the Electoral College.

“During the Jim Crow era, those were the rules too,” Carson told host Andrea Mitchell. “They were written, everybody knew about them — didn’t make them right. And I’m not saying this is the same. But, you know, I think you get the point. Just because rules are there, just because they’re written by somebody, doesn’t mean that they’re right. It doesn’t mean you can’t re-review the system.”
