Despite all the scandals, unpresidential behavior, and ignorance, Republicans still support Donald Trump, and former RNC chairman Michael Steele is sick and tired of it.
Another shoe dropped in Donald Trump Jr’s email scandal on Friday morning, as NBC revealed that Trump Jr. actually met with a second Russian during his meeting with a Russian lawyer to get damaging information to use against Hillary Clinton. As it turns out, Trump Jr. lied when he told Sean Hannity that his emails represented “everything” on his contacts with Russia, because an ex-Soviet intelligence official was at the meeting as well. In short, there two Russians at the meeting and one is deeply connected to the former Soviet Union. Ronald Reagan is now rolling in his grave.
And Michael Steele isn’t very happy about it either.
During an appearance on MSNBC, Steele went off on Trump for continuing to drag Republicans into scandals, and then he ripped Republicans a new one for continuing to support Trump.
“I think it works along the lines of a general belief that no one will know what actually happened because there was no third party source to validate or corroborate who was in the meeting. But, you know, we have a press corps, we have individuals as we’ve learned in this administration who do like to talk. And that information gets out — the drip, drip, drip. I’ve said it now for six months, the drip, drip, drip from this campaign and now into this administration will be its death knell, and it rings every frigging day for the Republican Party, and they better wake their butts up.”
“They’re scared of one-tenth of 1 percent of a base that is lockstep with Donald Trump, and the leadership is frozen,” Steele continued. “They have cement around their feet and they refuse to move. They can’t get an agenda passed, seven years on health care? This is a joke. Infrastructure won’t happen, tax reform? Forget about it. Because the focus right now is on getting to the bottom of the crap that is building up around this administration that is weighing down the party. If they don’t wake up, there will be no party going into next year.”

Indeed, 2018 is looking ever more precarious for the Republican Party as more and more Americans wake up to the realization that Trump is destroying the country and making America a laughingstock around the globe. It becomes clearer every day that Trump colluded with Russia and Putin to win the election. Trump should have been impeached and put behind bars already. But Republicans continue to protect Trump instead of doing their f*cking job, which is to protect the United States and the Constitution. It’s time for Republicans to stop putting party above what’s best for the country. That means they need to grow a spine and do the right thing. It’s time for Trump to go.
