Steve King And Rand Paul Confronted By 2 DREAMers In Iowa

Rep. Steve King and Senator Rand Paul were at a campaign event in Iowa when two DREAMers walked in. See Rand run. Run, Rand, run!

Good times at the old Iowa fundraiser with Steve King and Rand Paul Monday. There they were, eating their burgers, beckoning to all those good Iowa supporters to come on in when suddenly Erika Andiola and Cesar Vargas were standing before him.

Erika introduced herself to Rep. King as a DREAMER. Hilarity ensued. Watch Rand Paul shovel that burger in his mouth before running as fast as his little legs could carry him to anywhere other than there.

Rand Paul understands the price he would pay in 2016 if he's caught on video during this confrontation and says nothing, so he takes off.

Steve King, on the other hand, was a patronizing SOB...

Watching Rand Paul go Harry Houdini was pretty hilarious (I would say Speedy Gonzalez, but he would likely already be a deported DREAMer). Plus, he can't associate with Mexican mice, He's running for office for Pete's sake!!

I couldn't even finish watching the rest of the video. It was so cringe worthy. Just Brutal. Especially when she points to her leg and references cantaloupes. And he proceeds to ask her multiple times about her English proficiency.

King's patronizing comments to the Dreamer reveal how deep he lives in a bubble of fantasy. He could not overcome the dissonance between his idea that Mexicans are the Other, complete with fixed characteristics such as an innate tendency to "lawlessness," and the person actually standing in front of him--a nice, educated woman who was speaking her own language, English, because she grew up in the United States. King literally could not believe his lying eyes. The tragedy is that he has any power, much less enormous power in today's House of Representatives. He is clinically deluded. As for Paul--he knows that what he believes is not electable, so he has embarked on a course much like that of Ms Angle in Nevada. Your running photoshops are fantastic and dead on.
