Why Republicans are rebuking Rep. Steve King now

Clip: 01/16/2019 | 8m 59s

After a long history of controversial statements by Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, House Republicans stripped the 16-year congressman of his committee membership on Monday night. He recently wondered in The New York Times how terms like "white nationalist" and "white supremacist" became "offensive." Lisa Desjardins gets analysis from O. Kay Henderson of Radio Iowa and Asma Khalid of NPR.
