In a conversation with SiriusXM Radio host Dean Obeidallah, former Republican National Committee Michael Steele played arm-chair psychologist for some deep analysis of President Donald Trump.
“In your gut, what do you think is going on?” asked Obeidallah.
“I think he [Trump] is a man who still has daddy issues,” he explained, while Obeidallah can be heard chuckling. “I believe that. I believe a lot of the behavior orients to his relationship with his father.”
Steele explained that family members speak of the late Trump “as someone … who was a hard man to please and appease.”
“To prove that he could do all of the things his father said he could not to,” Steele explained. “For example, when his father said to him about starting his real estate business in Manhattan, Donald Trump saw the future and said, ‘hey, we should be here.’ And his father said, ‘No, you’re a boy from Queens, you can’t make it there.'”
Steele said that there was a class system that Trump grew up with where it mattered which borough people came from.
“I think all of that has played into the psychology of this 71-year-old man, who is now president,” he continued.

Plutonium found in Colorado soil at five times higher level than acceptable radioactive level
Why is there plutonium in the soil of a national wildlife refuge that is five times higher than the rate that demands a "clean up?" It's a question Colorado state health officials are examining Tuesday after their soil sample readings showed 264 picocuries-per-gram found in Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuge.
The Denver Post reported the findings of the radioactive substance, but toxicologists at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment said they don't believe "there is an immediate public health threat."
Trump supporters are furious about Trump’s anti-Semitic comment because now they can’t criticize Democrats anymore: CNN correspondent
President Donald Trump continues to suffer fallout from his anti-Semitic claim on Tuesday that Jewish Democrats are guilty of "great disloyalty."
As CNN White House Correspondent Kaitlan Collins noted on "The Situation Room," he is even facing blowback from his own party — which spent months trying to paint Democratic Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) as rabid anti-Semites for far less.
"He's ... being criticized by people on both sides of the aisle for this comment," said Collins. "Not just the president's usual critics who don't like things that he says or say he oversteps the line, but people who are on his side are saying, by making this comment, he doesn't realize why they have been critical of people like Rashida Tlaib, like Ilhan Omar for their in the past."
Wisconsin political professor shatters the biggest misconception about Trump’s base with a revealing poll
One of the most enduring ideas the general public, and especially Democrats, have about President Donald Trump's supporters is that they are bound by an unflappable, cult-like devotion to the president that transcends any sort of logic, reason, or reservations.
But in a lengthy thread on Twitter Tuesday, former University of Wisconsin-Madison professor and Marquette Law School Poll Director Charles Franklin revealed polling data that show this isn't quite true. There are plenty of solid Trump partisans — but voters supporting Trump are, on average, less attached to him than voters opposing Trump are repelled by him:
