Angela Stanton-King—who ran for the House Of Representatives to fill the late John Lewis' seat this past fall and lost by a landslide—had some extremely transphobic things to say about her own daughter on social media.
King—who got just under 15% of the vote in the district in which she was running to fill the Lewis' seat—posted a video about her experience on Dr. Phil where her anti-trans views were strongly confronted.
King was not happy. (Warning: Strong language)

King was confronted by trans advocate Ashlee Marie Preston on Dr. Phil, whom she constantly misgendered throughout the video.
She also brought up Preston's inability to carry children and criticized her for trying to give King advice about how to accept and deal with King's own trans daughter.

When Preston expressed more support for King's daughter over social media, King attacked her again.

King's Twitter was then suspended for the violent threat.
Preston reiterated over her own social media King's response was further proof of how badly trans kids need to be protected.
"Who do they think takes care of Trans and queer identified young adults and youth, when their families discard them? 🤔 "
"I may not be able to birth children but I have mothered and mentored more people in this life than I can count. I have the stretch marks on my heart to prove it…❤️ "
"I am not afraid of [Stanton-King] nor her Maga following."
"Given the recent onslaught of anti-trans legislation happening across the country; I'd say I'm just getting started."

Angela Stanton King is Uncle Rukus. You cannot tell me anything different— A-A-RON (@A-A-RON)1617721256.0
King has been a problematic figure in the United States for several decades.
In 2004 she was convicted for federal conspiracy charges as part of a car theft ring. In 2020, former President Donald Trump pardoned her.
Her social media was filled with hate filled rhetoric targeting the LGBTQ+ community, and especially toward her own daughter.
It shall not be missed.
