'We Should Be Embarrassed As A Country': Ex-RNC Chair Rips 'Abomination' Of Trump

Former Republican National Committee Chair Michael Steele said it’s “disappointing” that Donald Trump is leading in many polls even as the GOP presidential candidate heads to court Monday for his first criminal trial.

“It is an abomination,” he said Thursday on MSNBC. “It’s embarrassing.”

Steele said “our Constitution never anticipated” that someone like Trump, who is about to go to trial in a case related to paying off a porn star, would launch a viable bid for the presidency.

“Just the level of embarrassment beforehand would stop you from doing it,” he said. “But there is no shame. There is no embarrassment with Donald Trump.”

Steele called on the media to treat the trial as a “sobering moment” for the nation and not get distracted by the former president’s “crazy-behind circus.”

“We should be embarrassed as a country right now that we find ourselves with this man as a potential next president,” he said.
