President Donald Trump’s government shutdown resulted in an awkward situation on MSNBC’s “All In” with Chris Hayes on Tuesday when a guest speculated on Stephen Miller’s sexual history.
The anchor was joined by Republican strategist Rick Wilson slammed a purported border wall “compromise” offered by President Donald Trump.
Wilson is the author of the bestselling 2018 book, Everything Trump Touches Dies: A Republican Strategist Gets Real About the Worst President Ever.
“Someone likened it to working out a deal with your roommate lower the rent and then taking it to the landlord,” Hayes joked. “That’s not the way it works, that’s not who you’re negotiating with.”
“To me, there’s the pernicious fingerprints of Stephen Miller on this,” Hayes said. “He wants to reduce immigration — unauthorized, authorized, legal — in every possible way, because he has concerns about the current majority of the demographic integrity of the current majority of the country and that’s fundamentally what’s driving this.”
“At some point, Stephen Miller’s hand appears in every immigration deal that this White House has had,” Wilson replied.
“There’s something deeply wrong with Stephen Miller — I think we can all acknowledge that,” he added.
“And maybe someday he’ll have a relationship with a live human woman,” Wilson began.
“I don’t know if that has anything to do with it,” the host interrupted.
Wilson said it was Miller undermining Trump’s claim to be a deal-maker.
“The guy’s just a dark and weird figure and he wrecks Trump’s idea that Trump is this master negotiator. “We have ‘The Shart of the Deal‘ every day, where this thing goes crazy and off the rails every time Trump speaks about it, it gets less likely he’s going to get what he wants,” Wilson concluded.
