Former RNC Head Michael Steele Will Not Vote For Trump

Another one bites the Trump!

Buzzfeed's Ben Smith reported that MSNBC's Michael Steele, who is the former head of the RNC, will not be voting for Trump because he's "captured that racist underbelly" of America.

"I will not be voting for Clinton,” Steele told a dinner in honor of the 40th anniversary of the progressive magazine Mother Jones in San Francisco Friday. “I will not be voting for Trump either.”

Steele, a former Lieutenant Governor of Maryland, said that Trump has “captured that racist underbelly, that frustration, that angry underbelly of American life and gave voice to that.”

“I was damn near puking during the debates,” Steele said, adding that he believes Trump only represents 30% of the Republican Party.

Michael Steele helped Trump as much as he could on air, as the above video shows, but he's had enough.

I'd never expect Steele to vote for a Democrat in any election, but even he can't accept the Donald.

I wonder how any African American Republicans can still support Trump after all we've seen from him this campaign season. I mean you, Sheriff Clarke.
