‘The powers of the president … will not be questioned’
A few hours ago I could not have told you who Stephen Miller is. Now I can tell you he’s the jaw-droppingly officious little jerk who made the above assertion on Face the Nation yesterday. If you prefer not to watch videos, let me quote:
Our opponents, the media and the whole world will soon see, as we begin to take further actions, that the powers of the president to protect our country are very substantial and will not be questioned.
Let me repeat: “… the powers of the president to protect our country are very substantial and will not be questioned.”
What the hell!? Who does he think he is? He is, frighteningly, Donald Trump’s senior policy advisor. And apparently he was all over the Sunday talk shows yesterday saying pretty much the same thing.
My first thought was that he looked and sounded like some cold-eyed little Nazi praising Der Führer. Or some North Korean guy parroting a speech about the Dear Leader.
If you want to hear more of his absurd statements, there are videos all over the place right now. Or just search for Stephen Miller on YouTube. [Additional video now in Comments, below.]
Meantime, I’ve wasted enough brain cells on Washington today.
