Students Say Ahmed’s Clock Looks Like Bomb

‘It looks like something that might explode’

JOSEPH: “Hi everybody, I’m Den Joseph, with MRCTV. Now last week a kid named Ahmed Mohammed brought this to school. Now, authorities kind of freaked out when they saw it. They took the kind into custody, but the Liberals went absolutely ballistic. The Left said that this was an obvious case of racial profiling, because the kid was a Muslim and authorities assumed that it was a bomb. Well, a lot people actually think it looks like a bomb. So today we are going to ask  some college students what they think this looks like, and whether or not authorities were correct in being concerned that it might blow up."
