Steve King Says Obama's 'Drunken Uncle Omar' Should Be Called Before Congress (VIDEO)

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) wants to bring President Obama's uncle, Onyango Obama, before Congress to testify on whether he received preferential treatment after he was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol.

"We have to bring drunken 'Uncle Omar' in front of the House Judiciary Committee, drill down into this, and tell America what's going on," King told Fox News, referring to Obama's uncle, who is in the country illegally.

He also took a shot at Obama's aunt, who was granted asylum in the country by a Republican-appointed immigration judge because her immigration status was leaked just ahead of the 2008 presidential election.

10. 200 plus years of white presidents were never treated this way.
Not even anything remotely like it.

13. "Uncle Omar"?
The man's name is Onyango. We know King can pronounce this because it happens to be the last name of O's aunt, at whom he chose to take a gratuitous backhanded swipe. :eyes:

8. Let's talk about how Jenna Bush escaped being punished under daddy's '3-strikes you're out' policy
She was busted 3 times for underage drinking. Bush had a very harsh policy against underage drinking. Ya think perhaps she was spared since she was his daugher?
