“I saw a man who was a political genius,” Miller said about his time with Trump on the campaign trail. He added, seconds later: “The reality is the president is a political genius.”
A few minutes later, Miller said that Trump’s becoming president on his first try justified that word: “I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius, and a very stable genius at that.”
As he has done in previous interviews, Miller attacked the news media generally and the interviewer personally, continually shouting over CNN’s Jake Tapper until finally Tapper ended the interview.
“There is one viewer that you care about right now. And you’re being obsequious, you’re being a factotum in order to please him,” Tapper said.
