Rep. Steve King (R-IA) said that he cannot stand to listen to President Obama anymore which is why he removed himself from the House chamber Tuesday night shortly before the State Of The Union.

“I cannot abide sitting in there and being lectured one more time,” King said.

Instead, King spoke to the assembled press, saying he planned to visit the members’ chapel where he would pray for babies who were never born because of abortion, for the “restoration of our Constitution,” and “that God will raise up a leader” for the White House in 2016.
