Rep. Steve King (R-IA) was interviewed over the weekend by the NBC affiliate in Des Moines, during which he was asked about his previous mentioning of "birther" conspiracy theories about where President Obama was born.
"John, I didn't suggest that, I only related that others had suggested that," King told host John Bachman. "And it's another example of the professional hyperventilators trying to gain political advantage."
In a follow-up question, Bachman asked King whether he believed the conspiracy theories himself, that President Obama would have been born, not in Hawaii, but in Kenya.
"I don't know where he was born, but I don't see the indication that he was born anywhere else," King replied. "And I've said that consistently."
