There seemed no end to attacks on White House Senior Adviser Stephen Miller after his clash with CNN’s Jim Acosta over the poem inscribed on the base of Statue of Liberty.
While Acosta was mocked after Miller shut down his rant about immigrants speaking English during Wednesday’s press briefing, the left heaped abuse on Miller.
But perhaps no outburst was as strange – and desperate – as that by CNN’s Chris Moody.
Stephen Miller and I went to same summer camp.
He had an outburst.
Flipped a table.
Now he’s in the White Househttps://t.co/P2JGK9OU4w

Moody penned a trip down memory lane, revealing his thoughts on the “provocative, controversial, unpredictable and unforgettable” Miller he knew from his high school years.
“I could see Stephen Miller’s political career taking root when we were just 16 years old,” Moody wrote, recalling the summer camp where students created a mock government.
“Miller made an aggressive effort to become a leader of our adolescent experiment in mock government. The speech he delivered to get elected — and what he did after his victory — are moments I’ll never forget, even more so now that he’s in a position of real power,” Moody continued in his piece.
“Now 31, Miller is one of the most prominent West Wing staffers, known as a mini-Trump of sorts who can deliver a rapid-fire — sometimes fact-challenged — defense of the President on the Sunday shows that delights Trump even if it confounds almost everyone else,” he wrote.
I messaged with someone else who says he was there. ALLEGEDLY his tantrum began with the table flip but didn’t end there.

Moody was apparently being quite serious with this latest journalistic gem.
Seriously? This is the crap that delegitimizes real stories. https://t.co/Ok5B9zLEOh

No telling what other deep insights are waiting to be unearthed in other summer camp vaults.

.@moody You are bringing up something when he was 16?! No wonder CNN is regarded so derisively. This is the dumbest thing I ever saw.

Miller schools Acosta on live TV, and now CNN is looking for dirt on Miller

Have any proof? I mean u work for CNN so proof or evidence or real journalism isn’t really part of your mission statement

This is not news, this is TMZ level fodder, but with a CNN label attached, who is surprised?
— DJ Husted (@DJHusted2) August 3, 2017
Wow. Seriously? He did all that when he was 16? Bad boy.

Is it any wonder no one takes the media seriously anymore? You guys suck.
I honestly don’t mean that insultingly. It’s just a sad fact.
