Steve Scalise says Republicans “never disrespected the office” when Obama was president.

Let’s go to the tape. 

2009: Joe Wilson calls Obama a liar

2011: Doug Lamborn calls Obama a “tar baby”

2012: Mark Meadows says Obama should go back to Kenya

2015: Republicans invite Netanyahu to address Congress

2016: David Perdue prays Obama’s “days be few” 

2009: Over a dozen Republicans do not dismiss the birther conspiracy

2011: Jim Sensenbrenner says Michelle Obama has a “large posterior”

2014: House Republican staffer resigns after telling Sasha and Malia Obama to show “a little class” 

Scalise on Obama:

"We expressed our disagreements in a respectful way but what they continue to do to go after him personally, to call for impeachment of the president from day one”

Scalise was asked about impeachment 4 times in ’14.

He dodged 4 times.
