Rep. Steve King: Delusional racists are the president's problem

In the aftermath of Bill O'Reilly's superbowl interview childish badgering of Barack Obama, Rep. Steve King took to the Lawrence O'Donnell show to discuss his Republican constituents who still cling to the paranoid fantasy that the president is a secret Muslim. King, quite comfortable with egging on the Birthers who think the President isn't a citizen or going on the radio to smear him as a racist apparently draws the line at calling Obama a Muslim, but blames him for the misconception, anyway...only to have O'Donnell promptly punch him in the mouth:
"Do you have any doubt about whether [Obama] is a Christian?" he asked King. "I take him at his word," King said.

"Are you a Christian?" O'Donnell asked. "Yes," King said.

"Should I take you at your word or should I maybe suspect you are Muslim?" O'Donnell said. "Do you have a Christian ID you can show me?"

King said that the misconception about Obama's religion among many Republicans is "not a Republican problem, this is the president's problem." O'Donnell asked,"if Republicans believe the world is flat, is that a Republican problem or a geography problem?"
