CNN host John King tore into the Donald Trump White House Monday — and policy aide Stephen Miller in particular — for continuing to push claims of widespread voter fraud despite no evidence.

King cued up video of Miller’s contentious interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos Sunday, during which he claimed that millions of illegal voters were bused into New Hampshire on Election Day 2016. “Ask Democrats, ask Republicans, ask anybody in New Hampshire. They will tell you that is ludicrous,” King said.

“He is on the payroll now — you pay him,” he told his panel. “He’s a taxpayer-paid employee standing in the White House briefing room spewing garbage.”

“To quote Sean Spicer here, ‘This is something the president believes,’” quipped The Atlantic‘s Molly Ball.

“Forgive me; is it your job if you work for the president and he believes this, isn’t it your job to work on the president to get him through this?” King asked. “Or at least not to repeat it on television? Just say, ‘I can’t say that on television because we have no evidence that it’s true.’”
