Nonverbal Communication Analysis # 2206:
Peter King's Body Language
signals his true feelings for Grover Norquist

Rep. Peter King (R-NY) is interviewed in the above video where he speaks about Grover Norquist and a pledge not to raise taxes. Rep. King surely has contempt for Mr. Norquist which he expresses nonverbally several times throughout this segment. At 1:19, King says, ".... that fact that he brought my wife into it, he's never, I don't think he's ever met me, he's certainly never met my wife - and he better hope he doesn't - she'll knock his head off." A classic body language facial microexpression of contempt can be seen clearly, albeit very brief (as are all microexpressions) on the left side of his face at the 1:26 mark just after Mr. King says "".
