Stephen Miller, President Donald Trump’s senior policy adviser, made the rounds on Sunday’s political talk shows to defend the administration’s stance on several major issues. It did not go well.
MASSIVE VOTER FRAUD
It was comments he made on this issue that led me to write an article yesterday on how there is no proof of any type of “massive voter fraud”. And the little man believes he is quite important – but he needs to be reminded that he works for the President of the United States, who works for the people of the United States. In other words, I am his employer and I did not like his attitude at all. This attitude is one that several members of Trump staff have a problem with.
ABC’S “THIS WEEK”
On ABC’s “This Week,” he vigorously defended ― but provided no evidence to support ― Trump’s lie that “millions” of people have voted illegally. “I’m prepared to go on any show, anywhere, any time and repeat it and say the president of the United States is correct, 100 percent,” he said. Miller “seemed to assume that if you were in disagreement with him, there was something malevolent or stupid about your thinking — incredibly intolerant.”
This morning that invitation to Miller was given to him by the ladies of The View and I suggest that he go on the View as many women who watch this show have questions that no one from the White House have been able to answer.
ENDED THE SEGMENT
After pressing Miller several times to no avail, host George Stephanopoulos ended the segment. “You have provided zero evidence of the president’s claim that he would have won the popular vote if 3 to 5 million illegal immigrants hadn’t voted, zero evidence for either one of those claims,” Stephanopoulos said. “Thanks a lot for joining us this morning.”
And like the president, Miller undermined the legitimacy of the judicial branch. He slammed the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals for ruling unanimously on Thursday to reject the Trump administration’s appeal on its executive order banning refugees and immigrants from seven majority-Muslim countries.
CBS NEWS’ JOHN DICKERSON
Miller, who was influential in drafting the ban, told CBS News’ John Dickerson that it was “crazy” for judges to rule on the constitutionality of laws. He also reiterated criticism of Judge James Robart, the Seattle-based federal judge who halted the ban earlier this month.
“One unelected judge in Seattle cannot make laws for the entire country,” he said. “I mean, this is just crazy, John. The idea that you’re going to have a judge in Seattle say that a foreign national living in Libya has an effective right to enter the United States is beyond anything we’ve ever seen before.”
“FOX NEWS SUNDAY”
On “Fox News Sunday,” Miller accused the three judges on the 9th Circuit Court of “having a long history of overreaching” and characterized their decision as “a judicial usurpation of the power.” Several courts have ruled against the Trump administration over the ban.
This is what I would like to say to Trump and his minion Stephen Miller – Yes, the President have a wide assortment of tools to protect our country but – both President Trump and Mr. Miller cannot step all over the Constitution in anything they do. It is my opinion that there has been a lot of this going on in the Trump Administration. And if it continues, it could lead to an early impeachment, or in other words – You’re Fired!
