This is a man-caused disaster, and the man that caused it is Barack Obama with his DOCA policy, with his Morton Memos and the advertisement that has been such a huge magnet that have caused these families to give their daughters birth control pills and send them down a rape path all the way through Mexico, and it's a death path on the death train.To summarize, according to King:
- Central American families are voluntarily sending their daughters to get raped.
- The families are giving their daughters birth control pills so they don't get pregnant when they get raped.
- They are doing this because President Obama has been asking them to.
This is completely nuts. The policy to which King referred applies only to children who arrived in the U.S. before mid-2007, when George W. Bush was still president. The reason refugee children are fleeing to the U.S. is to escape brutal violence in their home countries.
So not only didn't Obama cause this, the families of these children aren't sending their daughters to be raped—in fact, they're trying to save their daughters from being raped. And as for why in the world King thought it made any sense at all to insert birth control pills into this discussion—well that's a cantaloupe-sized question that only he can answer.
Of course, as bad as what King said was, his interviewer, CNN's Chris Cuomo, wasn't any better. Because after King dropped his "knowledge," Cuomo said:
It's horrible. You've identified the problem, so fix it.No, Chris. Steve King did not just identify the problem. He spewed a bunch of nonsensical crap, and you didn't challenge him on it.
