Rep. Peter King (R-NY) appeared on MSNBC this Friday to slam his fellow Republicans for refusing to pass a clean bill to fund the Department of Homeland Security.
“This madness has to end soon. We can’t keep doing this,” he told MSNBC’s Luke Russert.
King took direct aim at Republicans who refused to pass a clean bill, saying that it was the “wing within our party who is obsessed with the President’s executive order” who are weakening the country’s fight against terror.
“We should not put American lives at risk to win an immigration battle with the president,” King said.
“I’ve had it with this self-righteous, delusional wing of the party.”
King reiterated that he opposes Obama’s executive actions on immigration, but that funding DHS is more important in his view
“Many of these people are elected from parts of the country that live in an echo chamber,” he lamented.
“All they hear is everything is anti-Obama.”
“If this keeps up, we’re never going to elect a president in 2016,” he added.
