Donald Trump’s entire administration is chock full of the most deranged and completely unhinged human beings that money could possibly buy. But perhaps the very worst of the worst is his top immigration advisor, Stephen Miller.
The man is just a serious stain on humanity in just about every way imaginable. And he made sure to really show his ass when he appeared on a segment with CBS Face The Nation‘s host Margaret Brennan earlier this year and ended up practically screaming her down because she was asking him tough questions about border security and the Affordable Care Act.
During the segment, Brennan commented on a federal court abolishing part of the Affordable Care Act that currently provides health insurance for millions of Americans and stated that the U.S. Supreme Court would likely appeal the case. She stated to Miller:
“To be clear you’re predicting that goes to the Supreme Court that the Supreme Court ultimately strikes it down.”
Miller replied, “I believe that’s it. Because it’s always been unconstitutional.”
Brennan continued to put the squeeze on the advisor, “Technically this decision wasn’t possible until the tax wall was put into place. Will the president instruct Republican governors to implement the law until there is a replacement?”
Miller instantly took to defending president Trump:
“ObamaCare was a disaster! Fortunately, again, the president has taken particular action to bring down the price of insurance on the exchanges. But Obamacare never worked. For example, even on the issue of preexisting conditions, American families earning $80,000 a year have to pay exorbitant out of pocket costs if they have preexisting conditions.”
Brennan pointed out, “Then those preexisting conditions protections are also gone” which miffed Miller in a bad kind of way, prompting him to fire back “A flawed law would be off the books!”
Miller was argumentative through the entire interview. But it wasn’t until Brennan brought up immigration, most specifically the 7-year-old Guatemalan migrant child that died in border patrol custody, that Miller got downright belligerent.
“Who bears responsibility for her death?” Brennan questioned Miller.
Not only did Miller avoid the question he actually raised his voice at the host as he came completely unglued — suggesting that the little girl’s death was a result of “left-wing” court rulings “that incentivize the most vulnerable populations to come to our country.”
Because of course, victim blaming is the Republican party’s favorite tactic.
