And there's irreparable harm that's being done to this party and to this country. someone needs to take control here and it's certainly not the president," Michael Steele told MSNBC's Chris Matthews.

The always-outspoken KISS bassist and reality television star was asked by Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford on TODAY Tuesday about recent comments to the New York Post regarding women being able to use their looks to get ahead.

"Women have a choice," he told the Post. "They can dress in potato sacks, (but) as soon as they pretty themselves up with lipstick, lift and separate them and point them in our general direction, they're gonna get a response. Guys are jackasses — we will buy them mansions and houses...all because of sex."

Hoda and Kathie Lee asked him to explain that notion.

"Here's the reality,'' he told them. "I am aware of the rules. I didn't create them, so you can try this yourself. I'm not saying life is fair. What I'm saying is the male of the species is visually stimulated.

Russell Simmons denies accusations of misconduct

  Russell Simmons denies accusations of misconduct Music mogul Russell Simmons is responding to new assault accusations detailed by the Los Angeles Times, against him and filmmaker Brett Ratner. "I completely and unequivocally deny the horrendous allegations of non-consensual sex against me with every fiber of my being," Simmons said in a statement shared with USA TODAY from representative Eric Rose.Just as these accusations are being reported, Terry Crews shared an email appearing to be from Simmons, suggesting that Crews forgive the man who allegedly groped him."Give the agent a pass," read the email tweeted out by Crews.

Gene Simmons insists he is siding with women when saying they should pretty themselves up to gain power. The KISS frontman made controversial comments while promoting his new book in an interview with the NY Post. “ I ’ m not saying life is fair .

Simmons, 68, writes in his new book, "On Power," that the best route to influence for women is using their appearance, which Hoda and Kathie Lee disputed.

"What I'm pointing out is your looks, how you dress, how you present yourself is an outreach, an extension of the power you have,'' he said. "We can't do that. Men can't do that. We have to build skyscrapers and thereby try be more attractive to you.

"Your actual female self is your power, so you have a choice of implementing that power, that's up to you."

Simmons also told the New York Post that women need to "get over your biological urges" and choose between having a family and a career because trying to do both is too difficult.

The KISS guitarist also gave his take on the allegations of rape, sexual assault and sexual harassment against prominent figures like Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey.

"I want all the jackasses to go to jail for being improper,'' he said. "It's just that woman have finally stood up on their two hind legs and said, 'You only get the respect you demand.'"

Simmons, who has two children, Nick, 28, and Sophie, 25, with wife Shannon Tweed, is encouraged by women speaking out.

"I have a daughter, Sophie, she's nobody's girlfriend,'' he said. "She has a boyfriend. It's time for women to stand up, take charge. Half the world's population is female, (and they're saying) you're gonna treat us equally or else."
