Samantha Bee hilariously claims to have obtained audio from New York Times interview with Stephen Miller

Published

on

Late-night comedian Samantha Bee released a video Tuesday that she says is the secret audio recording of the New York Times‘ interview with Stephen Miller.

The top White House aide bragged that he was the one responsible for writing the administration’s new “zero tolerance” policy on those seeking to cross the US/Mexico border. The policy has now resulted in anyone attempting to cross the border being detailed by immigration officials and separating them from their children.

“No nation can have the policy that whole classes of people are immune from immigration law or enforcement,” Miller said. “It was a simple decision by the administration to have a zero tolerance policy for illegal entry, period. The message is that no one is exempt from immigration law.”

“Stephen Miller, thank you for coming on,” a voice that is supposed to be Michael Barbaro says.

The response is a kind of gargling roar.

“So, are most of them crossing the border to seek asylum or are they trying to sneak undetected and are just being caught?” Barbaro asked.

The voice that is supposed to be Miller screeches like a “Jurassic Park” velociraptor.

Comedians have spent most of the wake of The Times interview destroying Miller on their nightly talk shows.

Monday, Seth Meyers called Miller downright “evil.”

“Wow, you know you’re evil when you actually want credit for a policy this cruel,” he said.

Stephen Colbert made similar attacks, characterizing him as a “potent tool in a severely limited arsenal of strategies for stopping migrants from flooding across the border.”

“I’ve always thought of Stephen Miller as a potent tool,” Colbert snarked, later correcting that – “impotent.”

The president told reporters Monday morning at the United Nations that he had withheld foreign aid from Ukraine as he discussed alleged corruption involving Biden, the Democratic presidential frontrunner.

"It's very important to talk about corruption," Trump. "If you don't talk about corruption, why would you give money to a country that you think is corrupt?...It's very important that on occasion you speak to somebody about corruption."

Trump’s jumbled response to Ukraine scandal is a strong signal of what’s to come: columnist

On Monday, President Donald Trump denied allegations that he extorted the president of Ukraine for information about Joe Biden. “It’s a ridiculous story,” Trump said during an appearance at the United Nations.

The controversy emerged after an anonymous whistleblower in the intelligence community logged a complaint with their agency about improper behavior by the president on a phone call with a foreign leader. “It’s a partisan whistleblower,” the president added.

Previously, the president's lawyer Rudy Giuliani had traveled to Ukraine to dig up dirt on Joe Biden. Critics worry that during a conversation with the president of Ukraine about rooting out corruption in his country, Trump suggested he offer information about Biden in exchange for funding.
