The View Grills Matt Schlapp Over Michael Steele Dis: ‘What the Hell’ Does He ‘Have to Be Graceful For?’ (Mediaite)

CPAC head Matt Schlapp found himself in the hot seat on The Viewthis morning, when Sunny Hostin confronted him about racially charged comments made by spokesman Ian Walters about former RNC head Michael Steele. (Walters said Steele only got the RNC top job because he “is a black guy.”)

Hostin echoed comments made by Steele himself, after Schlapp told him he should have “grace” regarding the comments by Walters.

“That was my reaction,” Hostin said. “I mean, what the hell does Michael Steele have to be graceful for?”
