On Tuesday’s “On the Record” on the Fox News Channel, Texas Republican Rep. Steve Stockman, who recently suggested President Barack Obama should be impeached if he uses executive orders to infringe on gun rights, compared the president to former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein.
President Obama will announce his plan to address gun violence on Wednesday, flanked by children from around the country.
“He is even using children,” Stockman said. “It reminds me of Saddam Hussein when you use kids.”
Republicans are tired of being pushed around by the White House, Stockman added, noting that legislators have considered a variety of ways to resist executive overreach.
