If the White House really wanted to show that Trump isn’t bat-shit-crazy and erratic maybe they shouldn’t have sent out a messenger who is completely bat-shit-crazy and erratic.
After the release of the explosive new book, “Fire and Fury” this week, Donald Trump has been desperately trying to prove that he actually is mentally fit enough to hold the office of the presidency. He didn’t help his case much by sending out a series of erratic, insane tweets calling himself “a very stable genius” on Saturday. And he definitely didn’t help his case by sending out the sleazy Stephen Miller to defend his sanity on CNN.
On Sunday morning, the White House sent senior adviser Stephen Miller out to defend Trump on CNN’s State of the Union with Jake Tapper. And it quickly turned into a train wreck.
After a few minutes of Miller cartoonishly going over the top to praise Trump, Tapper said, “I get it. There’s one viewer that you care about right now and you’re being obsequious and you’re being a factotum in order to please him, OK.”
In typical Miller fashion, he was completely obnoxious throughout the interview. When he didn’t like Tapper’s questions, he resorted to attacking CNN and the media.
Finally, by the end of the interview, Tapper had enough of the nonsense. He cut off Miller, turned to the camera, and said, “I think I’ve wasted enough of my viewers’ time. Thank you, Stephen.” And then CNN cut Miller’s microphone and went to commercial.
The entire exchange was crazy and Miller was combative the entire time. But as Tapper pointed out, Miller was talking to an audience of one. And Trump apparently loved the obnoxious interview.
Jake Tapper of Fake News CNN just got destroyed in his interview with Stephen Miller of the Trump Administration. Watch the hatred and unfairness of this CNN flunky!

But, as usual, Trump is delusional. This interview was humiliating for both him and the White House. If Miller was trying to prove that Trump is sane he failed miserably.
