Rep. Steve King’s (R-IA) bizarre remarks last week that rape and incest have been key to the survival of the human race made national headlines and ignited a Twitter firestorm.

The GOP leadership has usually given a pass to King’s frequent racist and xenophobic comments. But this time Liz Cheney (R-WY) tweeted “it’s time for him to go.”
