  1. Steve King is encouraging incest and inbreeding. As someone who works with animals, that is fast track to the health decline of a population. Disgusting.

  2. Maybe he's a child of incest. Did anyone ask him. Well.look at these evil times hes right. Iowa is a bigoted state. I know I live hear and man I have caught hel from these white folks down here. From, jail to houses. To in trap ment, and school teachers
    Churches, in all fields doctors. It soooo many white people in iowa that shows that they hate black skinned people. And think It's not felt in there actions.

  3. What do u think slavery was really all about? Whites (male and female) having complete absolute sexual control over black bodies, even the one who by no choice of their own, who happened to be relatives. This is old news.

  4. I'm beginning to think Republicanism is a mental deficiency/defect. How can any normal thinking person cling to that disgusting party of liars, racists, bigots, hypocrites, and perverts?

  5. Steve "Burger" King represents Iowa and its residents. Thank you for showing up with your ideas. King sill believes the earth is flat and the planet is always cool at night (global warming is fake) just roll down your car door window.

  6. People are yes laughing it’s more like disgust how did we get bush 1 and bush 2 and now this, what a waste of precious time the last 20 years of hate by white nationalism in war and greed.

  7. Like the Catholic church has been a haven for pedophiles…

    The Republican party has been a haven for ignorance, religious dumbing down, corruption, fear mongering, lies and subterfuge… For decades.

  8. King likes to treat women like chatel.
    He could care less about women's health issues. He wants to be the government guy who stands between women and doctors, and dictate the most difficult decision a female would ever make.

  9. Actually the ironic thing is he's right – for all the superstitious who still believe in Christian Bible mythology. Adam and Eve only had 2 sons: Cain and Abel, no girls. Yet we all supposedly descended from them.
    Now stop for a minute and think about that.
    When your jaw drops and your eyes pop open, then you've caught my point. If not, think about the basic logistics in that scenario…. 😵🤢🤢🤢🤢

  10. Step[hanie can sometimes be so dense. No, most Republicans do not hate black and brown people, and the sooner silly Steph gets over that one, the more effective she can be.

  11. What a fool, he probably thought he was throwing a bone to the "pro-choice group a bone to chew on. Most likely that bone will lodge in throat , killing his career, as a career politician.

  12. What has happened to the Republican Party? Racist, incestuous, greedy, indifferent to morality, the list goes on and on! What is in the water in the WH and the Senate? 2020 we will be rid of these maggots for good and God help us – that we never, ever, do this again! King, like Trump, must be suffering from 4th stage Syphilis. And like Trump (who we know key-holed Ivanka), he must have screwed his daughters, or nieces or someone who is being quiet about what he did which is why these idiots feel they can continue and do the things that they do?

  13. Feed King to a pride of hungry female lions along with his fellow evil GOP Satan worshippers. No one will them, except Satan.

  14. Bigotry, corruption, perversion to under ages girls,  Iowa voters voted for him, so they must approve obviously. He'll be a good ally to Trump. Perfect fit….

  15. The Republicans are going against King but I guarantee you if Trump had said the same thing they'd be right behind him and supporting his comments.

  16. Even if, historically, his statements are correct, I thought we were supposed to evolve beyond our baser natures and move forward not regress back into savagery and brutality.

  17. You're right, Phil. When a woman her age from that part of the country thinks we're being laughed at…you KNOW we're being laughed at. America, please vote!

  18. Steve King is the heart and breath of the Republican Party. He doesn't hide how he feels like the majority of Republicans do, he's just out with it. Iowa keeps electing this clown so what does that say about the people of Iowa? Yet every Presidential Election everyone flocks to Iowa to eat fried butter and every other unhealthy thing unfit for human consumption to get the support of these people who only elects people like Steve King and Donald Trump.

  19. The “Squad” being elected Democrats are a representation of the Democratic Party. King is in that same boat, he’s still allowed to run as a Republican so he still represents republican values.

  20. Steve King is, indeed, offensive. You know who else I find offensive? Arthur Brooks. Making an unqualified false equivalence between King and “The Squad” is highly offensive. Freshman congresswomen Ocasio Cortez, Preslley, Tlaib and Omar have been issue focused and, in my opinion, spot on about the issues. I don’t appreciate the implication that they are far outside the Democratic constituency. Where there have been verbal missteps by Omar, she has apologized and committed to doing better. Shame on Stephanie Ruhle for not pushing back more on Brooks’ statement.

  21. Your abnormal moral standards and distorted uneducated brain is not homogeneous to our society standards so we kick you out of the leadership

  22. Give your head a good shake America.
    Iowa elected this guy- more than once.
    Kentucky keeps electing McConnell.
    America elected GW twice.
    America elected Trump.

    This crazy is bone deep

  23. Let's test it on his family, see if it's true, and then forget about it. These republicans are so damned crazy they should be locked up for the safety of the general public.

  24. Why would trump admonish that guy??? They think exactly alike, and trump has even acted on it!!…(allegedly)….

  25. What n embarasment to iowa.. actually I met a lot of people from Iowa in Iowa people from Iowa are actually good people this guy king doesn't represent Iowa

  26. The Republicans have completely lost their minds and revel in shoving their stupidity and religiosity down American’s throats!

  27. I understand that Dr. Ben Carson, Stephen Miller and Steve King have been very interested in, and separating twins and Children with blond hair from the rest of the children they are keeping in their holding pens ! what's going on?

  28. So, the top republicans rebuke this clown but not the president for his blatant immoral language and behavior?

  29. But, didn't you hear? Steve Kings Uncle, Grandfather, brother and Father… Are two people who agree with him!

  30. And yet he is still there? I used to think black people used to be to be a bit paranoid but now it,s obvious they didn't, North America is seriously racist, possibly the most hateful and oppressive country in the world, so many countries have travel warning right now because nobody is fighting the hatred and tourist are warned not to visit because it' not safe and that's a massive amount of people avoiding your country and they provide a huge percentage of your economy. Idiots.

  31. Why are evangelicals and replican so forgiving of pedo, liars and fraudsters, it's a no brainer. And why the excusers of pedos attack victims within the evangelical church and republican party? They all lie but a racist safe place and hate breeding ground. Maybe you are too scared to address that in America but the world is turning on christianity and evangelicals, would you allow an evangerlical to babysit your kids?

  32. I lived in Iowa. No not born there. When i was in high school I knew someone that claimed his cousin was his best. I knew other people including 2 ex-girlfriends. That's one of the reasons I was happy to move out and I NEVER want to go back. Yuck! I lived in three other states and NEVER seen even one case of it in those other states. I don't care if your from Iowa cause I wish I never went near that place and you should take better care of your children. again YUCK!

  33. trump rapes kids too. all of congress is part of a stanic cult!!!!!! republicans and liberals have been working internally as a bipartisan orgnisation which lets them keep their legacy in power. none of both parties have given death penalties to rapists and pedophiles. hello you you dumb americans!!!!!!

  34. This is what the Republicans place in office. No morals, no common sense. They are found to be sexual predators, racist, pedophiles. I know how the democrats are , the established ones. Secretly racist ,work against their constituents, except big business. But at least , they did get rid of some of their members who was found offensive.

  35. How is still elected…..hmmm. The people elect him. Look I’m tired of looking at the elected official and look at the town the city and state. No more excuses this is the party.

  36. ALL AMERICANS NEED TO SEE THIS TRUTH ABOUT SLAVERY, TYPE THIS IN ON YOUTUBE,     THE INCONVENIENT TRUTH ABOUT THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY

  37. Why are they wondering what Trump will do, as if he's worried about King's bad reflection on the Republican party?!? LMAO! Trump says even crazier things than King everyday.
