MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough couldn’t sit idly by following a series of abrasive Sunday show interviews by White House policy adviser Stephen Miller.
On Monday morning, Scarborough let the world know exactly how he felt.
“Oh my god. It was so much worse than I ever thought,” he started rather bluntly.
Scarborough addressed one of Miller’s sentiments about the federal courts and judges who ruled against President Trump’s immigration ban. Miller asserted that the judges were actively infringing on executive powers, saying at one point that there was “no such thing as judicial supremacy.”
Scarborough spoke of judicial review and briefly of the historical relationship between the executive and the judicial branches of government, saying:
Alexander Hamilton and James Madison wrote about it in the Federalist Papers. It was enshrined in Madison’s Constitution. Andrew Jackson — you go into your president’s office, you know that one, and you look on the walls, and there are all these pictures of Andrew Jackson — he talked of the importance of judicial independence.
“And seriously, the White House has got to stop embarrassing themselves by putting this guy on,” Scarborough criticized. He said that Miller’s performance “made Susan Rice the Sunday after Benghazi look smooth.” He also called Miller’s performance “horrendous and an embarrassment.”
