Conservative radio host Andrea Shea King recently said on her show that congressmen who planned to skip Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's congressional address on Tuesday should "pay with their lives, hanging from a noose in front of the U.S. Capitol" . . . "I would like to think that these guys could pay with their lives, hanging from a noose in front of the U.S. Capitol building," King said in the audio clip.
