Presidential candidate and former neurosurgeon, Dr. Ben Carson found himself under a great deal of heat after he made comments about not advocating for a muslim president. Despite all of the negative attention he has received from his comments, it seems to be working out pretty well for his presidential campaign which he claims has been ranking in about $1mill dollars per day or more since he made the comment.

Carson backtracked after his hurtful comment, sharing that the comment was misinterpreted. Regardless of whose feelings may have been hurt by the comments his presidential campaign has not been hurt, but rather helped by the comment. This is an ironic twist of events that further exemplifies America’s prejudice toward muslims.
