Ouch! That’s gonna leave a mark! Watch America’s most racist congressman have an on-camera meltdown:

That’s not a good look for you, Steve, right down to the “ambusher’ dog whistle.

The incident even made WaPo:

Growing attention to [Rep. King’s] affiliation with far-right groups and figures, including a Nazi sympathizer, has culminated with the possible beginnings of a donor boycott. A handful of corporations, including Intel and the dairy company Land O’Lakes, have announced that they will no longer support King financially. Even the Republican Party issued a sharp rebuke of King that stopped just short of saying he promoted white supremacy.

The scrutiny built toward a confrontation Thursday after King was harshly questioned about whether his racially tinged views on immigration shared any similarities with those of Robert Bowers, the suspect in the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting Saturday who had said he was motivated by a fear of “invaders” responsible for his “people” being “slaughtered.”

Video of the confrontation circulated widely after being captured by Iowa Starting Line, a political blog in Iowa.

The most recent polls show King’s district (IA-04) too close to call. Heckuva job, Steve!
