SiriusXM correspondent Olivier Knox appeared confused by the question.

Knox responded after a noticeable pause, “Do her First Amendment freedoms get curtailed [because] taxpayers pay for her accommodations and her security? I don’t know that a lot of people would sign on to that.”

King then said “everything is fair debate” because “we live in a democracy,” before wrapping up the segment. NewsBusters managing editor Curtis Houck told Fox News that King’s defense was “absolutely ludicrous.” More


Christianity teaches us to hate the sin, but love the sinner and work for their redemption. Representative Rashida Tlaib’s religion believes that homosexuals should be put to death.
