Larry Klayman, the dumbest lawyer in America not named Mat Staver, shows both his delusional right-wing paranoia and his ignorance of the Constitution in an interview with Steve Malzberg on Newsmax. He says Obama is “obviously” a Muslim and therefore can’t swear to defend the Constitution because he can’t swear on the Bible.
Judicial Watch founder and right-wing legal activist Larry Klayman claimed in an interview with Newsmax’s Steve Malzberg today that President Obama “sympathizes with the so-called Muslim faith” and “everything he does nearly is based on favoring his own people, which is Muslims and African Americans.”
“He thinks like a Muslim, he believes that he is a Muslim, he obviously does worship the Koran,” Klayman said. “He obviously is in fact biased against people who are not of his claimed religion and otherwise.”
He added that President Obama’s supposed Muslim faith makes him unable to swear allegiance to the Constitution.“Given the fact that the president is a Muslim at heart and half-Muslim by birth, he can’t even swear to the Constitution because you have to swear on the Holy Bible of Judeo-Christians,” he explained. “This president obviously believes in Sharia law, and as a result he has no respect for this Constitution, which was founded by our founding fathers under Judeo-Christian principles.”
No Larry, the president does not have to swear on the Bible. Obama did do so, but he didn’t have to. The Constitution says absolutely nothing about that in the oath of office, nor does it add the “so help me God” that some presidents have appended to it. And there’s that idiotic phrase “Judeo-Christian” again. Oi vey.
