Ex-RNC Chair Trashes Donald Trump Over Trial In Most Sarcastic Way

Michael Steele ended a withering post about the former president with two snarky words.

Michael Steele, a former chair of the Republican National Committee, pulled no punches with his commentary on Donald Trump’s hush money trial, which began Monday.

Steele sarcastically swiped on X (formerly Twitter) that it was “such a proud moment” for the GOP that its presumptive presidential nominee was “sitting in a courtroom on trial for 34 counts of first-degree falsifying business records.”

Steele, a longtime critic of Trump, summarized the allegations against the four-times-indicted former president, who is accused making a payment before the 2016 election to porn actor Stormy Daniels to keep quiet about an alleged affair.

Then the Republican grandee sought to clarify, “This case is NOT about the payment but rather about the ‘catch and kill’ scheme — the effort to falsify official records — to conceal his agreement with others in order to cover up the payment from the public and ‘to unlawfully influence the 2016 presidential election.’”

“So Proud,” Steele sarcastically ended his post.

Last week, Steele lamented Trump’s lack of shame and embarrassment, which hadn’t dampened his enthusiasm to return to the White House.

Steele also urged the media not to become distracted by the ex-president’s “crazy-behind circus,” saying: “We should be embarrassed as a country right now that we find ourselves with this man as a potential next president.”
