White House Asked Ben Carson for Apology for "Offending" Obama at Prayer Breakfast

The dignity of the King was offended.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year.

...

“He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of the program, I received a call from some of the prayer breakfast organizers saying that the White House was upset and requesting that I call the president and apologize for offending him. I said that I did not think that he was offended and that I didn’t think that such a call was warranted.”

Incredible. Obama's Praetorian Guard wants people to apologize for disagreeing with him politically.
