Ex-RNC Chair Michael Steele: Party ‘Somewhat Irrelevant’

Former Republican National Committee Chair Michael Steele on Monday slammed the GOP as “somewhat irrelevant in the overall scheme of democracy.”

Steele, the former lieutenant governor of Maryland who served from 2009 to 2011 as RNC chair, told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes that the party has lost its way, to the point that it’s no longer mainstream.

“We’re not even near a stream. We’re just kind of standing in the middle of nowhere with Donald Trump screaming at us,” he said.

“We will have to do some serious rebuilding, not just the Republican Party” after Trump leaves office, he said. “That’s the problem for the rest of us as we try to put back in place those institutions that have safeguarded not just our domestic security, but our foreign security as well.”
