Former RNC chair Michael Steele expressed his dismay and disgust over President Donald Trump’s assault on science and his own CDC director, and bemoaned the fact that the attack would have no effect on his loyal base — even amid a global pandemic.
After Dr. Robert Redfield contradicted the president’s narrative on both the timing of a Covid vaccine rollout as well as the efficacy of mask wearing at a Senate hearing on Wednesday, Trump very clearly tried to walk back his own CDC director’s under-oath testimony while appearing to differentiate the relevance of Americans deaths in red vs. blue states. Redfield however, after his public dressing down, notably released a statement later that same day that did not bend to Trump’s claims he was “mistaken” or “confused.”
Steele, in a panel discussion on MSNBC’s The 11th Hour, did not attempt to hide his displeasure with Trump and those who continue to support him.
“You can live your whole life and not hear a president without a sense of stewardship over the country, instead itemized deaths in states run by Democrats. That was the extraordinary part about today,” host Brian Williams noted. “Michael, a lot of his base lives in that list.”
“They do and they don’t care,” Steele said. “I’ve talked to enough of them over the last few days, I’m exhausted. You know at this point, it’s like save who you can save because there is only so much you can do. There is only so much you can say. The fact that we have to — we have to literally beg people to wear a mask to save their own butt from getting sick, I’m sorry. To me, it is beyond the imagination.”
