Peter King: Cruz Supporters Represent 'Dark Strain' in American Politics

Rep. Peter King (R-NY), who has attacked Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) as a fraud, is upset his office is getting blowback from the conservative grassroots who “say they support the Constitution.”

King went to liberal outlet MSNBC to say he was upset with the “vehemence of the phone calls coming into the office” from Cruz supporters who have Cruz’s back against a Republican who has taken potshots at him. 

“I don’t care, people can call me whatever they want… I haven’t heard such vile, profane, obscene language,” King said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Thursday, according to Politico. 

King said he was “not saying Ted Cruz is responsible for all his supporters, but he has tapped into a dark strain here in the American political psyche here, and again, the most obscene, profane stuff you can imagine all from people who say they support the Constitution.”
