Peter King Won't Apologize For Saying 'Japs' On MSNBC
King was criticizing the foreign policy opinions of his party's front-runner, Donald Trump.By Matt Picht | May 13, 2016
Rep. Peter King of New York isn't sorry about using a racial slur as a rhetorical flourish during an MSNBC panel show.
King said, "I don't know if he's thought them through or is just like the guy at the end of the bar who says, 'Aw, screw 'em. Bomb them, kill them, pull out, bring them home. Why pay for the Japs? Why pay for the Koreans?"
That was King comparing Republican front-runner Donald Trump's foreign policy ideas to the impulsive opinions of a random drunk at a bar. King, by the way, is endorsing Trump.
