Steve King is a Republican Congressional representative from Iowa. And he's in hot water after saying this during an MSNBC panel, after Charlie Pierce commented on the Republican National Convention's lack of diversity:

"I'd ask you to go back through history and figure out, where are these contributions that have been made by these other categories of people that you're talking about, where did any other subgroup of people contribute more to civilization?"

"These other categories."

"Subgroup."

It's not King's first brush with sparking controversy. Or his second.

Well, some people had responses for King.
