Stephen Miller made Susan Rice’s performance look smooth?
That’s what Joe Scarborough just said during an on air meltdown Monday morning.
MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” hosts lost it over President Donald Trump’s senior adviser’s round of Sunday talk shows defending the administration’s executive order that temporarily halts immigration from seven Middle Eastern countries.

“[The President’s decisions] will be questioned my young, little Miller,” Scarborough said. “They will be questioned by the Court. It’s called judicial review. Alexander Hamilton and James Madison wrote about it in the Federalist Papers. It was enshrined in Madison’s Constitution.”
On this point, the power of the judicial branch to second-guess an administration’s decisions on matters of national security and foreign affairs has been questioned.
But then Scarborough took his commentary way over the top.
“That was the worst performance out of anybody,” Scarborough opined. “That was horrendous. An embarrassment.”
Conservatives, and POTUS himself got a different take from the Sunday performance, with one even commenting that Miller “bitch-slapped” Fox News host Chris Wallace.
The MSNBC host closed with the most outrageous comparison imaginable.
“That made Susan Rice, the Sunday after Benghazi, look smooth,” he said.
Then-Ambassador Susan Rice made her own round of the talk shows on the Sunday after the U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi was attacked by terrorists, resulting in four Americans killed.
She outright lied to the American people and blamed it all on a YouTube video that slammed Islam.
Co-host Mika Brzezinski found Miller’s performance so personally appalling that she didn’t wait for Monday’s broadcast — she tweeted out her disgust and used the hashtag #MillerTime2Go, encouraging others to pick up on it.
She saved a little drama for the show, however, covering her mouth at one point, looking as if she were about to toss her cookies.
The Steven Miller interviews this morning on all the Sunday shows were frightening! Sorry Mr President. No..
A really bad sign…

Meanwhile, loyal Trump fans disagreed with Scarborough’s assessment.

Fox News chief judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano ripped into the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals’ decision to uphold a U.S. District Court’s order temporarily restraining the Trump administration from implementing its executive order, calling it “profoundly wrong.”
Both Scarborough and Brzezinski would do well to seek legal authority before making opinions on court decisions.
