Andre Carson: Michael Flynn’s Tweet About Muslims Is ‘Absolutely Unacceptable’

‘As a general, he should know better’

BLITZER: "Because he did tweet this earlier in the year. He tweeted: 'Fear of Muslims is rational.' And then you see rational all caps. 'Please forward this to others. The truth fears no questions.' You're one of two Muslims in the U.S. House of Representatives. So when you hear the incoming national security adviser to the president say that tweet in February of this year, and he hasn't deleted that tweet, your reaction?" 
CARSON: "Absolutely unacceptable. As a general, he should know better. As a general who has traveled the world, he knows, having been briefed, top-secret documents, he knows that, were it not for Muslims in many of these countries and nationally, our government and our intelligence services would not be able to identify and capture the terrorists we needed to get without the information coming from Muslims who also want to make the world a safer place."
