Steve King blames the unholy trinity of rape, refugee kids, and birth control pills on President Obama.
Rep. Steve King of Iowa pulls off a perfect trifecta on CNN this morning:
This is a man-caused disaster, and the man that caused it is Barack Obama with his DOCA policy, with his Morton Memos and the advertisement that has been such a huge magnet that have caused these families to give their daughters birth control pills and send them down a rape path all the way through Mexico, and it's a death path on the death train.

They are doing this because President Obama has been asking them to.
This is completely nuts.
