Former Congressman Steve King, known for being a “just asking questions” sort of person to many on topics like white supremacy and abortion in the instance of rape or incest, is apparently set on continuing to make wild posts in his post-Congressional career.

Yesterday, he left Twitter gobsmacked after tweeting a story that seemed to imply he would rather have been a “slave” than “aborted.”

King’s tweet tells a tale about how he spent Juneteenth doing some yard work, which appeared to make him ponder what life would have been like as a slave. Then he thought about what it would be like to “be an aborted baby,” appearing to conclude that seeing the sunrise and sunset is preferable to never having been born.

Many felt King’s line of reasoning was flawed for some fairly obvious reasons, such as it being quite impossible to imagine what it would be like to be an aborted fetus, and others were not fans of the implied message of “while slaves had it bad, at least they got to see the sun.”

Needless to say, people were blown away by the sentiment implied in King’s hot take, and it was thoroughly roasted and ratioed on Twitter over the following days.

Though King is no longer in Congress, it seems he has little interest in rehabilitating his weird and “possibly racist” image, as some of his critics have called him.
