A former contestant on Donald Trump’s Apprentice was put on the spot on Thursday during a panel discussion on CNN, Talking Points Memo reported.
Andy Dean was in the middle of a debate with Tim Miller, a former aide to Jeb Bush’s campaign, when Miller said, “Here’s the thing: the Donald Trump guys try to seem tough, they try to seem strong,” while motioning toward Dean.
“We are tough. We’re winning,” Dean replied.
“That’s why you’re sitting in a booster chair right now,” Miller shot back. “Because you want to seem tall and strong.”
Seconds later, Dean challenges Miller, saying, “We’re winning. We’re winning. I have big hands. Let’s compare hands after this.”
Miller, who now works for an anti-Trump super PAC, ignored Dean’s remark, saying, “It’s not strong to insult people of a certain religion. It is really weak and it is really insecure.”
According to Gawker, Dean worked for Trump Productions after appearing on the GOP front-runner’s reality show.

‘Self-centered ego’: John Brennan unleashes on Trump for taking credit for military successes with ISIS
Former CIA Director John Brennan joined with MSNBC host Chris Jansing in expressing outrage over President Donald Trump proclaiming he captured ISIS.
Jansing cited reports saying the president attacked former Defense Secretary James Mattis and said, "I captured ISIS."
"No reported mention of service members," Jansing said about Trump's rant. "I cannot remember a president who did not give credit to the men and women who fought, who bled, who risked their lives and in too many cases always, gave their lives, made the ultimate sacrifice, and then he exits risking the resurgence of ISIS. What does it say to the men and women of the military who have committed their professional lives to this -- to keeping America safe?"
