On Tuesday, Rep. Steve King (R-IA) compared himself to Jesus Christ. Shortly after Easter, King suggested that he understood what Jesus went through for us at a town hall in Iowa.

He made the remarks in response to those who have scrutinized his divisive language.

“I don’t think the president is a racist, but here’s the thing: if you continue to say and act in that manner, then we all have to look at him and say, ‘OK, well, maybe you weren’t a racist, but now you’re turning into one.'”
