Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), well known for his incendiary comments, has done it again.
During an appearance on G. Gordon Liddy’s radio show this morning to discuss Arizona’s immigration law, King suggested President Barack Obama was a racist and “favors the black person” while carrying out his presidential duties.
King also said that he was “offended” by both Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder.
“When you look at this administration, I’m offended by Eric Holder and the president also, their posture. It looks like Eric Holder said that white people in America are cowards when it comes to race,” said King. “And I don’t know what the basis of that is but I’m not a coward when it comes to that and I’m happy to talk about these things and I think we should.”
King added: “But the president has demonstrated that he has a default mechanism in him that breaks down the side of race – on the side that favors the black person.”
