‘You Don’t Belong in Congress’ Twitter Slams Steve King After Deported DREAMer Tweet


Representative Steve King is known for incendiary comments about race and immigration.

Yesterday, when news broke that under Donald Trump, a protected DREAMer had been deported, he celebrated with a tweet about his beer, which he dedicated to law enforcement. As far as King’s tweets go, this one was relatively tame. (Remember “other people’s babies?”) Still, people are really riled up about this one.

There were calls for boycotts of his donors.

Other reactions were more plain old angry.

A number focused on encouraging others to vote him out of office, specifically by electing Kim Weaver.

Weaver, for her part, is making the best of his gaffes, as usual.
