This Trump supporter tried to defend Trump to a very prepared Democratic strategist on CNN on Monday. It didn’t end well for the Trump supporter.
On Monday morning, Trump supporter Jason Miller appeared on CNN with host Breanna Keiler and Democratic strategist Maria Cardona. And they discussed Trump’s early morning tweet attacking the Democrats for not fixing DACA.
After showing Trump’s idiotic tweet Keiler said,
“What is he talking about? He’s creating this- ‘The country’s being stolen, ‘ he says. Border crossings in 2017 were down by half. The specifics do not match reality.”
Miller then tried to blame the Democrats saying that they “walked away from putting together some sort of DACA deal.”
Fortunately Democratic strategist Maria Cardona was there to drop some truth bombs into the discussion.
“The president doesn’t only not care about this issue, he’s completely clueless when it comes to facts regarding immigration policy,” Cardona said. “He doesn’t care about these kids. He never has. He’s only there to use them as pawns, he talked about them during the campaign many times. ‘I agree with you on this’ has been a priority for this president. But he’s talked about deporting them. And building a wall. This was never about having a bill that was full of heart, the way he talked about. He’s always been about using these kids to placate his anti-immigrant base. What he did this weekend was I think just completely heartless, which again, goes to what his personality really is.”
Miller continued to defend Trump and attack the Democrats while Cardona threw actual facts at him. But when he brought up Hillary Clinton, she laughed in his face.
“That line of thinking didn’t work for Hillary Clinton in 2016 and doesn’t work now,” he said.
“What are you talking about?” Cardona laughed. “We’re not talking about Hillary Clinton. I mean that tells me you have absolutely no argument because you can’t argue about the facts.”
