Immigration

Steve King: I Drank From The Toilet

Iowa congressman and man who can't forget what he buried in that cornfield, Steve King, has heard the reports that some immigrants being held in indefinite detention have been told to drink from toilets and he doesn't see what the big deal is because the water is actually great.

The controversial congressman raised eyebrows on Wednesday when he told constituents about his recent tour of a migrant detention facility where people in custody were allegedly told to drink from toilets. Months earlier, Democrats had cited those claims as evidence that detention centers were unsanitary and inhumane, but the Iowa Republican insisted on Wednesday that their concerns were overblown.

I took a drink out of there,” King told the small crowd that had gathered at his town hall in Eagle Grove, Iowa. The water was “actually pretty good,” he said, adding, “I smacked my lips.”

Nothing to add.

    He should have done us all a favor and flushed himself while he was in there.

    “I took a drink out of there,” King told the small crowd

    My dog just rolled his eyes so hard he toppled over. He is also pretty sure that the answer to “Who’s a good boy?” is not and never will be “Steve King.”

    Steve King drank from a combination sink/toilet. The sink part is clean water. This post suggests he was drinking from the toilet bowl. WTF?

    Also WTF for him, because the complaints were about drinking from toilet bowls, not drinking from combo sink/toilets.

    What in the fresh hell? If Rep. Steve King was on fire, I wouldn’t waste toilet water to douse his flames.

    Next, Steve King will refute libruls’ concerns by sleeping in a smallpox-infected blanket and declaring it, “Nice and cozy.”

    What a wanker.

    Steve King tweets:

    I actually went into that cell where it was reported that they were advised they had to drink out of the toilet. I took a drink out of there. And actually pretty good! So I have a videotape and I smacked my lips … That was a little personal experience. But what it is, is if – you are, most of you heard about that – there’s these toilets in these prisons, are stainless steel. They’re built so that they are semi indestructible by the inmates that are there. …”

    Interesting choice of words. I thought they were detention centers where children were being temporarily housed.
