Republican Presidential Candidate Herman Cain admitted Monday that he had been stumped by a question about the Palestinian “right of return” the prior day.
“Where do you stand on the right of return?” Fox News’ Chris Wallace had asked Cain Sunday.
“The right of return? The right of return?” a confused Cain responded.
“A lot of people think you didn’t understand the right of return,” Fox News’ Sean Hannity noted during an interview with Cain Monday.
“They are exactly right, Sean,” Cain replied. “Chris caught me off guard. I didn’t understand the right of return.”
“The thing that you’re gonna learn about Herman Cain, if he doesn’t know something, he’s not going to try and fake it, or give an answer that he doesn’t know what he’s talking about,” he added.
But Cain had attempted to answer Wallace’s question Sunday.
“That is something that should be negotiated,” Cain told Wallace. “But not under Palestinian conditions. Yes. They should have a right to come back if that is a decision that Israel wants to make. Back to it’s up to Israel to determine the things they will accept.”

A Jacksonville, Florida library worked to hold a prom for LGBTQ teens who feel uncomfortable about going to their high school prom as they are or with the person they truly want to bring. That's why they started the Pride Prom. But after fears for the safety for the teens, the library had to cancel.
