During an appearance at the South Carolina National Security Action Summit last week, former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) fielded a question from an angry attendee about President Obama’s executive actions on immigration.

The woman grilled Santorum about Congress’ inability to reverse Obama’s executive actions.

“Why is the Congress rolling over and letting this communist dictator destroy my country?” she asked Santorum. “You all know what he is, and I know what he is. I want him out of the White House. He’s not a citizen. He could have been removed a long time ago.”

She later mentioned that “Obama tried to blow up a nuke in Charleston a few months ago.”

Santorum appeared confused and uncomfortable throughout her question, and someone had to cut her off so that Santorum could respond.

“I’m not a sitting member of the Senate, so I’m not taking blame for any of that stuff,” he began, before voicing his opposition to Obama’s executive actions on immigration.

“You hit on one point that I absolutely agree: this is a complete lack of leadership,” he said.

Santorum said that “the word ‘tyrant’ comes to mind and claimed that the Constitution is “unraveling.”
