If former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele was ever an actual Republican — someone who cherishes individual liberty, freedom, and a less-government-is-more mindset, those days are long gone.
In an interview on MSNBC (again — which should tell you something right there), Steele claimed he was “exhausted” trying to convince supporters of President Donald Trump to wear masks.
'I've talked to enough of them over the last few days,” Steele said. “I'm exhausted, I'm exasperated. You know, at this point it's like, save who you can save because there's only so much you can do.”
“The fact that we have to literally beg people to wear a mask to save their own dumb ass from getting sick — I'm sorry, to me, it is beyond the imagination,” he added.
He was responding, in particular, to a rally President Trump had in Hendersonville, Nev., earlier this week in which the majority of some 5,000 people allowed to attend an indoor rally sat close to each other and did not wear a mask.
Because masks are kryptonite to COVID-19, you see.
Just ask Michael Steele, the guy who said a couple of years ago that, yep, the GOP has a “racism problem” (that’s the same party he was selected to lead from 2009-2011, just as a reminder).
Oh, and he said just last month the Republican National Convention led by Trump was ‘filled with conflicting moments’ (but not the DNC, apparently).
The Trump campaign said ahead of the rally, “'If you can join tens of thousands of people protesting in the streets, gamble in a casino, or burn down small businesses in riots, you can gather peacefully under the 1st Amendment to hear from the President of the United States.”
That’s exactly right. Think Steele will call BLM and Antifa rioters dumb a**es?
For the record, Steele went to law school, not medical school. And his fear porn about wearing masks does not comport with real health experts in Sweden who have been saying for months that wearing masks to ‘control coronavirus’ is fiction.
But hey, we’re all just a bunch of Trump-supporting rubes who are nowhere near as smart or enlightened as Michael Steele.
Just you remember that, lest he remind you.
