Fox News’ George Wallace put Stephen Miller to the grindstone on Sunday when he pressed the White House senior policy adviser on President Donald Trump‘s repeated attacks on Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and Ayanna Pressley.
During the interview the two held on Fox News Sunday, Wallace presented Miller with a series of Trump’s most racially-charged remarks before asking “why shouldn’t someone see all of that as racist?” Miller responded that the racism label has been overused by Democrats, but as he tried to spin away and talk about Trump’s accomplishments, Wallace continued to lock on the president’s policy positions, saying “that’s not protecting the American people, that is playing the race card.”
After Miller defended Trump from Wallace’s aggressive drill-down on the president’s birtherism, they eventually landed on Trump’s racist go-back-where-you-came-from tweets and the “send her back” chants at his most recent campaign rally. “The president was clear that he disagreed with [the chants],” Miller claimed, to which, Wallace countered “He was clear after the fact. He let it go one for 13 seconds and it was only when the chant diminished that he started talking again.”
“He said nothing there or in his tweet after the rally that indicated any concern about the chant.”
Miller proceeded to go after the squad after insisting that “the core issue” was that Trump’s supporters are “tired of being beat up, condescended to, looked down upon.” He especially went after Ocasio-Cortez for referring to migrant detention centers as concentration camps, calling it “a historical smear” and “a sinful comment” on her part.
