Ben Carson continues to be incredibly ill-informed in spite of a campaign shakeup.

On Sunday’s This Week, Martha Raddatz asked Carson to weigh in on Saudi Arabia’s execution of dissident Shiite cleric Nimr al-Nimr, and after Carson went for a long walk around unrelated talking points, placed the blame for the killing on the United States:…

RADDATZ: — had criticized the monarchy in Bahrain for suppressing protest during the Arab Spring, and he was executed.

CARSON: No, I don’t, I don’t condone by any stretch of the imagination. Of course we don’t condone that kind of thing. But I’m just saying we need to stop doing silly things that promote these kinds of activities; that’s what I’m saying.
