The former chairman of the Republican party is upset with Republicans who call themselves Christians while supporting Donald Trump. And he has some harsh words. Video of his comments are provided below.
This isn’t the first time Michael Steele has betrayed his party – he’s been an outspoken critic of Trump since his candidacy. And he blames Christians for looking over what he says are the President’s past moral failings.
During an appearance on MSNBC’s “Hardball with Chris Matthews,” Steele said the President’s past moral misdeeds makes it incapable for Christians to support them. He argues that Christians who support Trump now have no moral authority on any subject. He said those Christians should “just shut the hell up.”
Recently, Steele said he would help Oprah Winfrey run for President if she threw her hat in the political ring.
Here is a transcript of the exchange Steele had with Matthews (transcript provided by Breitbart):
STEELE: I have very simple admonition at this point to just shut the hell up and don’t preach to me about anything ever again.
STEELE: I don’t want to hear it because after telling me how to live my life, who to love, what to believe, what not to believe, what to do and what not to do, and now you sit back and if the prostitutes don’t matter —
STEELE: — the grabbing the you know what doesn’t matter, the outright behavior and lies don’t matter, just shut up.
MATTHEWS: But if you’re a baker, you do not have to bake a cake for a gay wedding.
STEELE: Yes. They have no voice of authority here anymore for me.
MATTHEWS: You are very authoritative. This is a final statement.
STEELE: It rubs me raw.
MATTHEWS: This is a final statement from Michael Steele.
Here is video of his statements.
