White House adviser Stephen Miller torched Fox News’ Chris Wallace on Sunday while discussing President Donald Trump’s temporary travel ban.
During an appearance on “Fox News Sunday” Wallace grilled Miller over the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals decision to uphold the halting of the ban that stated the courts had power “to adjudicate Constitutional challenges to executive action.”
The Fox News host contended that the court’s statement proved Miller was “flat wrong” in his assessment that the court had no role in national security.
“The president’s powers here are beyond question,” Miller fired back.
“The Ninth Circuit has a long history of being overturned and the Ninth Circuit has a long history of overreaching. We don’t have judicial supremacy in this country,” he said.
Wallace swiped at President Trump’s tweets against Judge Robart due to his decision to put a hold on the travel ban.
He said the judge is no getting death threats and asked if the president ought to be held responsible if anything happens to Robart.
“This is one of the most ludicrous things that the media does, where when any crazy person in this country issues a death threat that they then blame a politician or a public official. That is reckless and irresponsible,” he said.
“Of course, one branch can criticize another branch of government. It’s ludicrous to say that Congress can criticize the president, and the president can criticize Congress, and judges can criticize the president, but the president can’t criticize judges,” he added.
President Trump was so impressed with Miller’s performance, not only on “Fox News Sunday,” but on other Sunday talk shows, he tweeted his approval.
Congratulations Stephen Miller- on representing me this morning on the various Sunday morning shows. Great job!
