King Accuses Obama of Favoring Black People

Posted June 14, 2010 at 5:05pm

Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) accused President Barack Obama of favoring black Americans over whites during an interview on G. Gordon Liddy’s radio show Monday.

“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,” King, who is white, argued during the interview, according to a clip of the show on the website

King, who is a leader in the movement to crack down on illegal immigration, has accused Obama of not being a U.S. citizen.

A King spokesman did not immediately return a request for comment.
