Former Chairman Of The Republican Party Says Trump Supporters Are ‘Pathetic’ And ‘Sycophants’

Published

on

Michael Steele, the former chairman of the Republican Party, recently decided that keeping Trump supporters deeply involved in the GOP is a bad idea, so he said a few things that are guaranteed to alienate these folks and leave a really bitter taste in the mouths of anyone who might still have thought of supporting the party.

According to Steele, Trump supporters are “pathetic” and “sycophants.”

The comments were made during a panel discussion on MSNBC that took place over the weekend.

Jonathan Capehart, the fill-in host of Saturday’s AM Joy, first showed a clip of American Conservative Union Chairman Matt Schlapp in which CNN’s Alisyn Camerota cut off his defense of the president amid impeachment and pushed back on his claims. He then asked Steele, now a political analyst for MSNBC and a Trump critic, if he is surprised that conservatives are sticking by the president.

“Are you surprised, given all your years in the Republican Party and all the values and things that it stood for and stands for in your mind, that these people are siding, despite all the facts that we know that have been released by the president, that they’re still sticking by him?” Jonathan Capehart asked.

“Not only surprised but highly disappointed,” Steel answered. “It is embarrassing how pathetic these sycophants have become, how desperate they are for one man, one man, to like them, to not tweet about them, to say something good about them, to endorse them.”

He went on to say, “It is embarrassingly pathetic for a party that has a rich and long tradition for standing with the rule of law, standing against our enemies, foreign and domestic, so that would include Russia and the KKK.”

Steele, who is 61, served as the chairman for the Republican National Committee for two years, from January 2009 to January 2011. He joined with MSNBC not long after his tenure in that position ended.

Watch: Pelosi Gloats As She Fist Bumps Bill Maher, Says Trump Is Now ‘Impeached Forever’

Is she still feeling ‘somber?’

The goal of impeaching President Trump was never to kick him out of office. The Democrat-controlled House of Representatives knew from the start that POTUS would be acquitted in the Senate. It’s only a matter of time. The whole point was to stain his record because they have nothing else to go on. The economy is great. Unemployment is in the basement. Jobs are abundant. Enemies fear America. Like I said, they have nothing. Check out Pelosi on Bill Maher, via The Blaze: In the days leading up to the House of Representatives passing the articles of impeachment against President Trump, Democratic Speaker Nancy Pelosi told members of her party to appear “solemn” during proceedings. “Don’t cheer, keep it solemn,” Pelosi said, according to a swing-district Democrat. One month later, and the appearances of solemnity appears to have gone out the window.

The LSU Tigers are fresh off a college football national championship after defeating Clemson on January 13. Unlike other teams, collegiate or professional, LSU didn’t shun President Trump in order to gain some credit with far-left loons in the media. The team showed up to the White House and created a memory that will last forever. On top of that, a video of some of the players dancing in the Oval Office has since gone viral. WATCH: https://twitter.com/ConnorDespino/status/1218245636165898241?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1218245636165898241&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2020%2F01%2Fgoing-viral-national-champs-lsu-tigers-dancing-in-oval-office-retweeted-by-president-trump-awesome-videos%2F Who’s that lady? From Fox News: On Friday the players danced in suits and ties — joined by the woman, whose daughter later identified her on Twitter as her mother, Gemi Bordelon, wife of former LSU Tiger offensive tackle Ben Bordelon, who went on to play for the NFL’s San Diego (now Los Angeles) Chargers in 1997, Heavy and WBRZ-TV in Baton Rouge reported. The Bordelons joined the team on the White House visit because they’re close with members of the Louisiana congressional delegation, WBRZ reported.
