    Friday on MSNBCs Andrea Mitchell Reports, former Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele called President Donald Trumps proposal to end birthright citizenship via executive order engaging in stupid at a level that we have never seen before. Steele said, It is better from Trumps perspective to have a base that is angry and mad at someone other than him. It is sort of the 1950s racism that has been reintroduced into the body politic, and he is thriving on that. So, you know, a great jobs number, and wages going up, and tax cuts, and Supreme Court appointment s appointments,...

    MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace said that she had previously told then-presidential candidate Jeb Bush that he should have punched President Donald Trump in the face after one of the primary debates in 2016. During an episode of Wallaces show Deadline: White House on MSNBC on Thursday, she was discussing Bushs feud with Trump. Bush and Trump used to have heated debates in 2015 and 2016 before the former governor of Florida dropped out of the race. Former Republican National Committee Chair Michael Steele was discussing one instance when Bush called out Trump during a Republican debate. "Let me tell you,...

    Former Republican National Committee Chair Michael Steele ripped Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) for urging Florida voters not to monkey this up by voting for his Democratic gubernatorial opponent, Andrew Gillum, who is African-American. Its how white folks talk about black men who are successful, Steele said on MSNBCs Meet the Press. Steele also criticized DeSantis for calling Gillum articulate. I heard that hes articulate, that he performs well, hes checking off those boxes. Why do you have to describe him that way? he said. "Doesnt happen to a lot of white candidates," he added, echoing host Chuck Todd's...

    Friday on MSNBCs Andrea Mitchell Reports, former Republican National Committee chair Michael Steele likened President Donald Trumps rally last night in Wilkes-Barre, PA to a circus that is causing swing voters to move away from Republicans. Steele said, Pennsylvania is a bellwether for a number of important races coming up this fall and the fact that the president is so narrowly playing to a base, that he feels good in that setting, hes having fun, hes riffing and cussing and doing all this and those folks are loving it. To Charlies point, the rest of the country, the independent voters,...

    2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney will be delivering a major speech Thursday denouncing Donald Trump. FORMER RNC CHAIRMAN MICHAEL STEELE: I don't know why they think this is going to work in the first place. I don't know who they think this is going to influence. Keep in mind, Mitt Romney lost 3 million Republicans, who didn't even bother to show up and vote for him because they did not support his campaign.

"I‘m gonna say this and I know people are going to scratch their heads and go ‘what?’ but I don’t think he can [be stopped]," Steele said on 1210 WPHT in an interview posted by BuzzFeed News.

    Former Chairman of the Republican National Committee, Michael Steele says, following the last Republican presidential debate in South Carolina, Donald Trump will be the Republican Party's nominee for President. Steele, responding to a question from Rich Zeoli on Talk Radio 1210 WPHT about who can defeat Trump for the nomination, said no one can. "I don't think you can.

    Spine of Steele! Where has this feisty Michael Steele been? In this NewsBuster's view, the former RNC chairman has too often been the voice of the mushy Republican middle. But on MSNBC's All In this evening, Steele forcefully advanced the GOP cause. For starters, Steele shocked guest host Alex Wagner when he said Donald Trump would beat Hillary Clinton in a debate. Steele then took on Howard Dean, mocking the former DNC chairman when he claimed Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz "know nothing" about foreign policy. For good measure, Michael accused Dean of "shilling for Hillary." Say it, Steele! View...

    Closing out the Wednesday edition of Andrea Mitchell Reports on MSNBC, Andrea Mitchell remarked how the presidential candidacy of Republican Senator Ted Cruz (Tex) would have been sunk and declared “a non-starter” under so-called normal circumstances due to so many of Cruz’s Senate colleagues having a disdain for him. Mitchell was speaking with former Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman and MSNBC political analyst Michael Steele when she exclaimed: “The conventional wisdom has always been that Ted Cruz had so alienated all his colleagues that he was a non-starter to be a national candidate, but this year, that could be an...

    Who said the Hillary email story is "a lot ado about nothing": a. Mika Brzezinski; b. Lawrence O'Donnell; or c. Michael Steele? You'd be forgiven for choosing a. or b., but it turns out that Mika said that the way Hillary handled the matter "wasn't honest" and O'Donnell said that Hillary's email system was set up "to defy" the Freedom of Information Act. The correct answer is indeed c., Michael Steele. The former chairman of the Republican National Committee said it on today's Ed Show. View the video here.

    Evangelical Christian Republicans would have a serious problem with Charlie Hebdo were it to mock Christians in America, says former Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele. It would be a real, real problem for a lot of grassroots evangelicals out there, particularly with respect to the sense of attack on them personally, said Steele, appearing on NBCs Meet the Press on Sunday. Its a real balancing act, he continued, between . . . that feeling of expression and wanting to be free to do that, and then the personal feeling I have when you express yourself, and I feel like...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele on Wednesday criticized grand jury decisions to not indict white police officers in the deaths of black men in New York and Ferguson, Mo. "They tell us, at least, a prosecutor can indict a ham sandwich. Well clearly a black man's life is not worth a ham sandwich when you put these stories together. And that is the frustration," Steele said on MSNBC. Earlier in the day, a Staten Island grand jury declined to indict a New York police officer in the choking death of Eric Garner over the summer. Video captured by...

  • Bill Maher, Ben Affleck and Islam

    Last Friday night a rare dialogue/debate took place on American television. It was rare because it involved criticism of Islam, one of the many taboo subjects that are labeled "politically incorrect." And it took place on the program "Real Time with Bill Maher," a show not generally known for taking politically incorrect positions. But on this night the host, Bill Maher, along with atheism-advocate Sam Harris, had a vigorous debate with Actor Ben Affleck, New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof, and former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele. Bill Maher, a man of the left on virtually every issue, began...

The former Republican National Committee chairman on Monday poked fun at reports that some House Republicans changed their minds on crucial border legislation last week after meeting with Cruz, the Texas Republican and tea party icon. For John Boehner, whenever any of his members says, Hey, Im about to have pizza and beer with Ted Cruz, he should be concerned, Steele joked. Really look at the calendar and see if theres a vote coming up, he said, adding that Cruz undermined GOP leaders. Steele...

    Michael Steele on Wednesday said Liz Cheneys decision to challenge fellow Republican Sen. Mike Enzi for his Wyoming Senate seat will be disastrous and split the party. The former Republican National Committee chairman told MSNBCs Alex Wagner that he thinks former Sen. Alan Simpson was right to call the situation a disaster. I think hes right, I think its going to open a lot of fissures in the party. I think this is an insurgent move by Cheney, Steele said Wednesday on Now with Alex Wagner. Steele criticized Cheneys comments that Enzi has compromised too much and gone along to...
