Rep. Steve King Damns Hillary With Faint Praise: 'She Is Somebody I Could Work With'

Oh, I guess it's because she's not a Black guy.

Things must be really bad in Iowa. I say that because this short answer from Rep. Steve King about Hillary Clinton is so different from the way he speaks of President Obama that I had to listen twice.


If it's Hillary Clinton, we don't agree on very much. So you'll probably see me become a vocal member of Congress if you should elect me to go back to Washington after November," Steve told the crowd, as quoted by the Des Moines Register's Jason Noble.

"But I also know that I've sat across the table with Hillary Clinton eye-to-eye, and when you're working outside of staff and outside of press, she is somebody I can work with," King continued.

Uhhhh. Isn't King in big for Trump? Yes, yes he is. However, polls show a close race in Iowa, with Hillary leading in a one-on-one with Trump, and third-parties flipping it for Trump when included. So this is also true.

Sounds to me like he's just playing the full gamut of voters.
