On a special edition of WHO-TV’s Insiders, Congressman King made a shocking announcement about whether he believes contraceptives should be legal in this country. His answer: “I’ve not taken a position on the sale of contraceptives at all.”
King was also asked to explain some of his other outrageous statements. During the interview, King continued to defend his comparison of immigrants to dogs, saying “it was a compliment.” He was also asked to defend his statements questioning whether President Obama was born in America, saying, “I don’t know where he was born, but I don’t see the indication that he was born anywhere else.” King also doubled down on criticism of Huma Abedin and defended his assertion that she has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, saying, “If you look at her family connections and family orientation, I think it’s very clear.”
All of these statements were made in just a four-minute segment, which is available online here:
Congressman King has once again shown that he is not fit to represent the 4th District. His refusal to take any position at all on contraception should raise serious doubts among voters who, regardless of party, believe families should have access to contraception and have the ability to plan their families.
