Appearing on CNN with host Soledad O’Brien, on Monday, Rep. Peter King (R-NY) repeated the Republican talking point that Pres. Obama had gone an “apology tour,” even though he was unable to provide any proof (video below), reports RawStory.com.
O’Brien said: “Where do you see an apology? You called it an apology tour. You said, ‘the apologies.’ What apologies are you specifically talking about?”
Rep. King: “I would say when he was in Cairo in 2009, when he was basically apologizing for American policies, saying American policies sometimes had gone too far."
O’Brien added: “Never once in that speech, as you know, which I have the speech right here, he never once used the word apology. He never once said, ‘I’m sorry.’”

Rep. King claimed: “Any logical reading of that speech or the speech he gave in France, in which he said the United States can be too aggressive."
O’Brien responded: “But that’s not apology. But everybody keeps talking about this apology tour and apologies from the president and I’m trying to find the words ‘I’m sorry, I apologize’ in any of those speeches, which I have the text of all those speeches in front of me. None of those speeches at all, and if you go to Factcheck.org, which we check in a lot, they’ll say the same thing. They fact check this…”
Rep. King yelled back: “I don’t care what FactCheck says!"
