Food Fight! Steve King Accuses Palin Of Taking A Payoff To Endorse Trump

They're just all-out hammering each other now.
Views:

Steve King (R-Wingnut) spoke to MSNBC's Chris Jansing about Ted Cruz and his candidacy.

Jansing asked King about Sarah Palin's endorsement of Donald Trump, and her comments that she wants to keep Cruz in the Senate and for Trump to be president.

"Why do you think they went the way they did and how much does it hurt you," Jansing asked.

King slyly replied, "I don't know many people who have been able to say no to Donald Trump. He has a massive amount of resources and assets that he can deploy when it comes time to convince someone."

Jansing was far more straightforward, repeating King's claim that Sarah Palin made her endorsement out of self-interest.

"Knowing what I know, sometimes you never really get down to the heart of hearts," King replied. "But when I see where Sarah Palin has been on issues, I'm confident that she's much more comfortable with Ted Cruz's issues than she is with Donald Trump's."

He added, "If you want a constitutional conservative, you need to vote for Ted Cruz. If you want someone else, because of where they are in the polls, it's a de facto vote for Trump."
