CNN Panel Goes Off the Rails After Trump Advisor Rips ‘Feigned’ Anti-Trump Outrage
A CNN panel this morning went pretty off-the-rails after a senior advisor to Donald Trump dismissed “feigned” outrage over Trump retweeting a nasty attack on Heidi Cruz‘s looks.
Stephen Miller voiced objections to the media getting so worked up about this instead of immigration, but Jake Tapper pointed out, “Mr. Trump is the one who has set this table.”
Miller complained about how D.C. “works itself up into a feigned indignation” over this, but Tapper jumped in to say he doesn’t think “anybody’s feigning anything.”
Former GOP official Doug Heye pounced and expressed some disgust with Miller’s recent CNN interview where––as Heye put it––Miller wanted to “agree to disagree on sexism.” Miller blew up and started shouting, “That is absolutely inappropriate!… You misquoted me, that’s a lie!”
He insisted that this kind of thing is trivial compared to other women’s issues. Neera Tanden countered that a man who says “terrible things” about women on a regular basis would not be best equipped to address any women’s issues.
