It's ridiculous that a presidential candidate could say something like this.

Throughout her long career, Pink has never been one to bite her tongue — even if it meant calling out a music legend!
During a radio interview with Nova FM's Fitzy & Wippa on Thursday morning, the Just Like Fire songstress spoke out on the tragic passing of Prince — and remembered calling him a "rude f*ck" at the beginning of her career!
When asked if she had ever crossed paths with the Purple Rain singer, she admitted:
But as close as they were, the funnyman is now admitting he was totally caught off-guard to learn the late legend had passed away.
The comedian told BBC's Radio 5 Live that he had no idea the rocker was sick, explaining that they had talked two weeks before the musician lost his battle with cancer:
"[His death] was a total surprise. I was emailing him two weeks before, so he must have known. He kept it from everyone."
In the year leading up to his death, the artist had discussed his diagnosis with very few people, including his producer and band members.
The Office alum applauded the star's decision to keep his sickness a secret, adding:
We're glad his music is helping people cope.
We're hearing that the 57-year-old's 2001 compilation album The Very Best of Prince is set to top the Billboard 200 for the week ending May 7 with 150,000 albums sold!
Billboard closes its weekly sales period every Thursday night at midnight, meaning Prince's 15-year-old set managed to outsell every other album in the country this week in just eight hours!
The official numbers won't come out until Sunday, but we're thinking keeping his songs off every streaming site except TIDAL certainly played a part in his impressive numbers!
Are U one of the thousands who purchased The Very Best of Prince yesterday??

Some things can be said so simply with images that few words are necessary.
On Thursday afternoon, Iman — the recent widow of another music legend in David Bowie — offered her condolences to everyone touched by the Purple Rain singer's passing, sharing a touching and powerful image on her Instagram account (below):
Now that's one way to celebrate your birthday!
The Milk actor flaunted his Ziggy Stardust costume by taking to Instagram to post a picture of himself all dolled up (above) with a friend. For the photo, he wrote:
"Happy b-day to Ted and Tom"
It's said that the Pineapple Express star was accompanied by friends who also dressed up as the Space Oddity singer. Obviously, the Bowie tribute made the A-lister stand out at the popular theme park as many people took to IG and Twitter to share footage of Franco's look (below).
The Somali supermodel and the Space Oddity rocker got married in 1992 and welcomed daughter Alexandria Zahra Jones in 2000 — all while balancing careers in music and fashion.
In an interview taped before her husband's death for an episode of OWN's Oprah: Where Are They Now?, Iman opened up about how she and Bowie made their marriage work.
While Bowie is one of the biggest music icons in history, Iman revealed they separated themselves from their public image at home, explaining:
What a truly wonderful tribute.
We've already seen beautiful salutes to Ziggy Stardust thanks to Lady GaGa's gorgeous Grammy performance and Lorde and Annie Lennox's partnership at the BRIT Awards, but it's time to add yet another tribute to the list.
That's because The Flaming Lips just dropped a music video for their version of Space Oddity on Thursday, and it's easily the best Bowie cover we've heard.
It perfectly honors David's memory while standing out on its own thanks to that supremely stylized chorus, and we think it's safe to say he'd be proud.
