Former Democratic National Committee chair and failed presidential candidate Howard Dean called the National Rifle Association (NRA) a "right-wing extremist organization" on Saturday. 

Dean made the  astonishing remarks in a conversation with MSNBC's Joy-Ann Reid on Saturday morning. 

"Howard, the NRA did a stealthy statement whey made is seam like they’ll have some movement on gun reform," began Reid.

"They want the ATF to do the regulations," she noted, but in "2016 the ATF sent another letter in which the firearm’s chief branch offer said we find the bump stock is a firearm part, and is not regulated as a firearm under the gun control act and the national firearm’s act." 

"What kind of game is the NRA playing here?" Reid asked Dean, who was only too happy to provide an answer. "The NRA has become a far right extremist ... fund-raising group," Dean asserted. 

"This is pre-Trump," explained Dean, and goes back to "when they realized that the Republican Party was eventually going to have to move back to the middle or they're going to be out of business." 

"The average Republican voter is well over 50 and they posses views that are not in sync with where the rest of America is — especially what I call the 'hate wing' of the Republican Party," Dean continued.  "So that’s what they are — they're a right-wing extremist organization now and their positions have become ridiculous," Dean claimed.

GOP Rep. Mia Love blasted Michelle Obama for comments she made earlier this week, which asserted that the Republican party is "all male, all white".

"I don't know if she noticed, but I am not white and I am not a male," Love said during an appearance on "Fox & Friends" on Saturday. 

Love noted that Mrs. Obama's divisive comments were typical of the Democratic identity politics playbook. "This is the way that Democrats try and win elections instead of winning on the policies that actually help the American people and unite us," she stated. "This is absolutely divisive language."

"I don't fit in a box," Love continued. "I am a wife. I'm a mother. I'm a Utahan. I am a black Republican who cares about America and cares about all people," she said.
