View Full Version : Liberals claim Iowa's Steve King insults fat people

I don't agree with him on everything, but I didn't see where he insults fat people.

Tucker Carlson...Kind of weird though. I remember at least a year ago, the leadership was saying we want to build a wall and we want to defund Planned Parenthood. You've provided a way to do both those things simultaneously and yet they are not congratulating you or buying you a beer?

Steve King...When I came to Congress in 2003, there were 19 million people on food stamps and that number elevated all the way up to 47 million, it's dialed back down to 46 million now. And forty percent of them are obese. And so we addressed the food stamp program under Lyndon Johnson, starting in about 1962, got the program in '65, and back then 13 percent of our population was obese and we were trying to solve the malnutrition problem. well we've absolutely solved the malnutrition problem, and now we have an obesity problem.

He didn't. He just stated a fact. However, even though they're obese, I suspect they're malnourished.

Well, if they are offended, they need to grow a thicker skin.

Or a thinner one.

LOL, make the skin fit the size. :)

I think the biggest insult to fat people in the last 10 years was telling people they drink too much soda and the state trying to ban huge soda cups.
