Kevin Sorbo defends Trump’s Muslim ban: ‘I don’t mind if you racially profile me’
Actor Kevin Sorbo argued on Thursday that Jesus Christ would support Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton this election season, reasoning that the GOP candidate was “the lesser of two evils.”
“Every time I ask a Democrat, ‘What has Hillary done?’ they never have a really good answer,” Sorbo told TMZ. “She has more scandals around her than Nixon ever had. Watergate’s a joke compared to what’s going on in the White House today.”
However, TMZ’s protographer countered by saying that since Jesus grew up in the Middle East, “he wouldn’t be allowed to come over here under [Trump’s] immigration policy.”
“I don’t think that’s true,” Sorbo replied, before launching into a defense of Trump’s proposal to ban all Muslims from emigrating to the US.
“I’m Norwegian,” he said. “If there’s Norwegians going around strapping bombs [to themselves], you can check me out. I don’t mind if you racial profile against me. I have nothing to hide. So why do people if they have nothing to hide, why are they getting upset about stuff? If they have nothing to hide, they take one day out of your life, fingerprint me, check out my background, what’s wrong with that?”
“But isn’t he saying, ‘Let’s ban immigrants from those countries?'” the photographer replied.
“He’s saying, ‘Let’s check everybody out,'” Sorbo responded.
