The former chair of the Republican National Committee (RNC) recently offered stinging words of advice for Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) in response to her remarks about a "national divorce."

When Michael Steele appeared on MSNBC's "The 11th Hour" on Thursday, March 2, he did not mince words with his take on Greene's remarks during her interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity the previous day.

“We need a national divorce," Greene declared. "We need to separate by red states and blue states and shrink the federal government.”

MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle recalled Greene's remarks made on Tuesday, February 28 where she reiterated her desire for what she described as a "national divorce." Per Mediaite, this time she explained it "in the form of 'our own safe space,' referring to Republicans who don’t want to be governed by Democrats."

During the interview with Steele, Ruhle asked, “Does she know how divorce works? Because, alimony doesn’t pay – not in this case.”

Steele delivered a scathing response.

"She has no clue what the hell she’s talking about. Why do we listen to this crazy fool?" Steele asked. "Marjorie Taylor Greene, please just shut the hell up. Do us all a favor. You are an embarrassment to the Republican Party and to the country as a congresswoman. You sit there, you say this kind of crazy."

He added, "Mitt Romney said it best. We fought that war. A Republican president lost his life over trying to save the union, and this fool wants to split it? So, here we go. This is the kind of crazy that requires a lot of heavy thinking, because she isn’t."
