Stephen Miller tried to defend President Trump today on Fox News. In an interview with Chris Wallace, Miller was obviously agitated and annoyed that the American people have not been buying any of the arguments the administration is making.
Miller struggled to label everyone as “partisan hacks” as Wallace read through a list of people who obviously were not. That list included Trump’s own appointed Inspector General, who found the whistleblower complaint credible and of urgent concern.
Other than a indignant “they’re wrong” Miller offered no proof of any of his claims.
He did make a lot of noise, however. Miller went into a rant about how the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump was the real whistleblower here. That he was the real victim in all of this.
“The president of the United States is the whistleblower and this individual is a saboteur trying to undermine a democratically elected government,” Miller said, during a contentious interview on “Fox News Sunday.”
Again, Miller offered nothing in the way of proof, just blunt and loud rantings as if he was just trying to shout-down or bully the American people into buying the administration’s explanations.
Miller seemed to think that just by saying “partisan hit job” over and over, that the American people would submit to his and Trump’s will. He claimed that the complaint “drips with condemnation, condescension and contempt for the president.”
Again, he provided no proof of his claims.
In only the last week, however, support for an impeachment inquiry has grown among not only the House of Representatives, where 225 members now are on record as supporting such an action, but by the American public in general.
According to a new poll released today, 55 percent of Americans support the move to begin an impeachment investigation on the President.
That would explain why Miller and other Trump allies have been trying to get on every news program they can to try to dismiss and distract from the whistleblower complaint. Unfortunately for them, that is all it explains as their arguments have increasingly fallen on deaf ears. One might speculate that Americans, even some of Trump’s supporters, are beginning to see the unmistakable patterns in his behavior.
