No, not that Steven King.
Steve King, congressman from Iowa. Notable for his own bold statements in the past, is now supporting another “bold and fresh” guy, Donald Trump.
In a Tweet, King said trump needs to “purge leftists from the executive branch” before “treasonous acts sink us”.
I’d say the ship has already sailed on “treasonous acts”, but we’re definitely not sunk yet. Donald Trump is a fighter and he’s punching back hard!
I agree wholeheartedly with King that Trump needs to do a DEEP purge. Way beyond just draining the swamp. The deep state has its tentacles in deep and they extend way beyond the White House.
The only thing King is wrong about is thinking or suggesting that the Deep State is headed by, or started with, Obama. That’s like punching an elephant in his big toe and thinking you’re attacking the whole animal. Please!
Here was his Tweet, and then scroll down for more of the story:

Representative Steve King, R-Iowa, told the New York Times on Tuesday that he believes in the existence of a “deep state” attempting to undermine President Trump’s administration.
“We are talking about the emergence of a deep state led by Barack Obama, and that is something that we should prevent,” King told the Times. “The person who understands this best is Steve Bannon, and I would think that he’s advocating to make some moves to fix it.”
The term “deep state,” which is relatively new to American politics, has been used to describe a permanent military, intelligence and law-enforcement bureaucracy manipulating government policies in secret.
King added that Trump “needs to purge the leftists within the administration that are holdovers from the Obama administration, because it appears that they are undermining his administration and his chances of success.”
King’s remarks echoed a previous statement made on his Twitter account, where he wrote the president “needs to purge Leftists from executive branch before disloyal, illegal & treasonist [sic] acts sink us.”
