Joe Scarborough: Trump Yelled at Me Once For Criticizing ‘Poor Young Kid’ Stephen Miller

Joe Scarborough told a story on Tuesday about how President Donald Trump supposedly yelled at him once for criticizing Stephen Miller‘s flirtations with authoritarian-sounding rhetoric.

After Morning Joe aired a disturbing clip of Miller saying the president’s powers “will not be questioned,” Scarborough remarked on how Trump and Miller had a “mind-meld” with each other during the 2016 election. This led to Scarborough recalling a conversation he had with Trump where the two ended up screaming at each other because the MSNBC host objected to Miller’s “illiberal, undemocratic and frightening” remarks.

“It’s the only time I’ve heard Donald Trump call and yell in defense of somebody else,” Scarborough said. “He actually said ‘you’re hurting this poor young kid, you’re killing him every day.’ It was the first time I’d ever heard him talk about any staff member that way.”

Scarborough said his retort at the time was that Trump needs to tell the “poor, young kid” to read the Constitution.
