‘A bunch of BS’: Ex-RNC head decimates evangelicals who ignore Trump’s trysts in exchange for a conservative Supreme Court

Published

on

Former RNC Chair Michael Steele blasted evangelical Christians for giving President Donald Trump “a mulligan” in the hopes of him nominating additional Supreme Court justices.

During an appearance on MSNBC’s Deadline: White House, guest hosted by Peter Alexander, Steele disagreed with New York Times journalist Jeremy Peters’ contention that a court vacancy would be a “reset button” that would bind the evangelical community to the White House.

Steele spoke directly to the Christian right.

“I said have said before, for the last thirty-five years, you have condemned everybody else in this country for how they lived their lives, very publicly and in a very embarrassing way,” Steele reminded. “Here you have a man in the White House with all of this ‘ish’ coming out about him and his behavior — and you’re giving him a mulligan?”

A mulligan is essentially a do-over, a second chance that ignores the initial failure.

“I said before, repeat here again, we don’t want to hear it,” Steele declared.

“If you have this public stance that we are with the president, he gets to do a mulligan, don’t get me in a corner privately and say, you know, ‘we’re really concerned about his behavior, this is so upsetting.’ That’s a bunch of B.S.” Steele concluded. “The American people aren’t buy buying it. Enough’s enough about it.”

‘Irony and Outrage’: How different — and how similar — are Samantha Bee and Fox News?

Published

on

Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly are masters of outrage — not just the emotion, but a genre of political theater — just as Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart are masters of ironic satire. They’re poles apart, and yet — ironically or outrageously — they’re profoundly similar, both in how they’re impacting their audiences, and why their genres emerged when they did. That’s perhaps the central thesis of “Irony and Outrage: The Polarized Landscape of Rage, Fear, and Laughter in the United States,” by Dannagal Goldthwaite Young, who’s both a professor in the Department of Communication at the University of Delaware and an improv comedian with the troupe ComedySportz Philadelphia. That’s among the many different hats she wears.
