KING CRITICIZED: Boehner Calls Iowa Rep. ‘A–hole’

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

U.S. Speaker of the House John Boehner let a fellow congressman know what he thought of Fourth District Republican Congressman Steve King’s comments about children of illegal immigrants.

Talking Points Memo reports Boehner called King an “a–hole” after hearing’s King’s comments.

Last year King argued the U.S. shouldn’t give legal status to children brought illegally into the country. In explaining his reasoning, King said for, “everyone who’s a valedictorian, there’s another 100 out there that weigh 130 pounds and they’ve got calves the size of cantaloupes because they’re hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert.”

Iowa Governor Terry Branstad and King’s fellow Republican Congressman Tom Latham joined Democrats in denouncing King’s comments at the time.

        No. No payment involved. I am not computer literate and never found out how to get any money for clicking. Wish I did know how, and then how to use it or have advertisements or put stuff onto the sidebar.
        What I have going is purely fair use, only.
        Actually, I wish I could find work or was closer in miles to my grandchildren, and had something else to do.

    King is a disgrace to every decent human being IMO.

    Are there some bad apples? Sure, but there are a lot of bad apples that were born and raised in the USA to non-immigrant parents.

    Instead of trying to find a solution, King continually just makes comments to demean people. I’m completely amazed that he continues to get re-elected…

    don’t complain about your high insurance prices and open the boarders at the same time common sense tells you somebody has to pay the bill

    The biggest problem is, King was right. The other problem is, they know he’s right.
    American’s CAN’T do this to Mexico….. they won’t put up with it. So why do we? I suggest you read Mexico’s law on immigration.
    The border is an open door, and it needs to be changed. In 2012 50,000 OTM’s were arrested in the Rio Grande sector. That means how many got thru? OTM’s are from Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq etc. Ever heard of a Trojan Horse? We could have an army here and not know it…. This has to STOP!!! Put your big boy pants on and decide whether or not to give our country to someone else or put a stop to it. This touchey feely stuff isn’t working.

    Let’s take a moment to reflect how our country has changed in the last 6 years.
    Instead of defending ourselves against other country’s we should let them in and take us over.
    Make cigarettes illegal, make e-cigarettes illegal.
    In the same breath, make dope legal.
    Make gays have more rights than anyone else.
    Reward people for not working and punish the ones that do work.
    Make guns a bad thing and find reasons to take them or the ammunition
    Instead of being just American’s, lets build a bigger wall between african- americans, hispanic-americans, etc. That hyphen is a barrier.
    Let’s preach about no taxes for the rich, but take more from the poor.
    Let’s destroy our health care,
    Let’s destroy our energy supplies and go for wind, something that will not ever pay out.
    Lets borrow more money and not even look to pay it back ever.
    Lets attack the Churchs, convince everyone they are bad for you.
    Just what gives people the right, to destroy everything we had???? Just where will we be in 10 or 20 years at this rate?
