O’Brien questions Rep. King on validity of Pres. Obama Mideast ‘apology tour’ statement

Homeland Security Committee Chairman Rep. Peter King (R-NY) answers questions on Mideast unrest and his previous statement that President Obama has gone on an “apology tour.”

CNN Anchor Soledad O’Brien says, “But everyone keeps talking about this apology tour, and apologies from the President and I’m trying to find the words, “I’m sorry, I apologize” in any of those speeches, which I have the text of all of those speeches in front of me. None of those speeches at all… and if you go to Factcheck.org, which we check in a lot, they’ll say the same thing. They fact checked this and they say this whole theory of apology….”

Rep. King interjects, “I don’t care what FactCheck says.”

O’Brien replies, “You may not care, but they’re a fact checker.”

Starting Point with Soledad O’Brien airs weekday mornings from 7-9am ET on CNN.
