“[We have] a Commander-in-Chief who disrespects this Constitution, doesn’t believe in free enterprise, doesn’t believe in life and families,” King said during a congressional debate with Democratic opponent Christie Vilsack in Hampton.
KING: Are we going to defend this Constitution that we celebrated tonight, or are we going to watch it be eroded by a Commander-in-Chief who disrespects this Constitution, doesn’t believe in free enterprise, doesn’t believe in life and families. They are core values in this country that we must defend at all costs.
Though King has made a career of controversial and outlandish statements, they’ve come at an increasing clip in the past few months as Election Day nears. In July, he hosted a tele-townhall where he defended dog fighting. During the same event, King suggested Obama’s parents may have telegrammed a fake Hawaii birth announcement from Kenya. In August, King expressed his agreement with Michele Bachmann’s anti-Muslim witch hunt against Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin and others. He also bemoaned the existence of multicultural groups on college campuses, dismissing them as “people that feel sorry for themselves.”
