*During an interview with Michael Steele Wednesday on her “NewsNation” show, MSNBC anchor Tamron Hall told the Republican National Committee Chairman that he had spoken to her like a five-year-old.
As Hall grilled Steele about Republicans’ unwillingness to name specific programs they plan on cutting, she raised her voice as she spoke about the “14 million people out of work” and the “great number of independents who are concerned about this country.”
“Tamron, OK, OK,” Steele said in a sigh while gesturing in a downward motion with his hands. “Calm down. Let me answer your question.”
At the end of the interview, Hall thanked Steele for appearing on the program, but mentioned the incident.
“Chairman Steele, it was a great pleasure having you on, despite the fact you told me to calm down like I was five,” she said.
“I didn’t mean it that way,” he responded.
“Yeah, it kind of came out that way,” she said.
