A CNN panel on Thursday mocked Trump supporter Jason Miller after he accused members of the “Deep State” of leaking dirt to distract from President Donald Trump’s State of the Union speech this week.
While discussing the latest report that Trump asked Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein if he was on the president’s “team,” Miller suggested that the entire story was a leak from within the United States government aimed at undermining the purported success of Trump’s State of the Union speech.
“I think the fact that this happened back in December and then this magically comes out the day after the president’s State of the Union speech — you know, on Monday I tweeted out, ‘I hear the speech is going to be fantastic, I wonder what the Deep State comms directors are coming up with,” he said. “And then, boom, on Wednesday, somebody goes and leaks this out!”
Host Alisyn Camerota subtly rolled her eyes and started mocking Miller’s wild assertion.
“Can you believe how the ‘Deep State’ has taken hold, now people talk about this so it’s real?” Camerota asked panelist Ana Navarro.
“I used to think the ‘Deep State’ was Louisiana,” Navarro cracked.
Later in the segment, Navarro took another crack at Miller for asserting that the FBI is a left-wing organization out to get Trump.
“I am so old, I remember when Republicans used to be against adulterer presidents, against Russian oligarchs and dictators, and for the FBI and law enforcement,” she said.

I study genocide. It's been a theme in my academic endeavours for nearly 30 years. More accurately, I study the conditions in the lead up to genocide, be they cultural, social, political, economic, etc... 1/n
Year of Rat hails easy ride for Donald Trump — but bumps for Harry and Meghan
As the world prepares to welcome the Year of the Rat, feng shui masters predict a lucky year for Donald Trump, but warn Harry and Meghan's futures are less certain as they make a bid for freedom.
Both the US President and the Sussexes have begun 2020 with a bang.
The former is facing down an impeachment trial -- and seeking re-election in November -- while the latter are beginning a new chapter in Canada after consciously uncoupling from the gilded but pressured career of being a working British royal.
But if experts in the field of Chinese horoscopes are to be believed, it is the US president that will have the easier journey this year.
John Roberts caused a ‘crisis of democratic legitimacy’ — it’s ‘entirely fitting’ he has to preside over his mess: columnist
Supreme Court Justice John Roberts was blasted in The Washington Post on Thursday for his culpability in creating the dynamics that resulted in President Donald Trump -- and his impeachment.
"There is justice in John Roberts being forced to preside silently over the impeachment trial of President Trump, hour after hour, day after tedious day," Dana Milbank wrote. "Roberts’s captivity is entirely fitting: He is forced to witness, with his own eyes, the mess he and his colleagues on the Supreme Court have made of the U.S. political system. As representatives of all three branches of government attend this unhappy family reunion, the living consequences of the Roberts Court’s decisions, and their corrosive effect on democracy, are plain to see."
