Top Democrat demands ‘boss of everybody’ Stephen Miller appear before Congress and explain the chaos he is creating

Published

Appearing on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) was sharply critical of President Donald Trump adviser Stephen Miller for creating chaos at the border with his immigration policies.

Speaking with host Jake Tapper, Nadler scorched Miller for Trump’s declaration that he would start dumping immigrants in sanctuary cities, saying the Trump aide needs to appear before Congress and explain what exactly the administration is attempting to accomplish.

“If someone requests asylum, there should be a place for that person to stay while that request is adjudicated,” Nadler began. “Nor is it right for the president to use immigrants or people claiming political asylum as pawns in a fight against political opponents. He shouldn’t use them as what he imagines as retribution to political opponents in various areas — it’s another misuse of presidential power against the law.”

“We heard several weeks ago from whistle-blowers that Stephen Miller proposed this before we heard about it from any other source,” he continued, his voice rising. “Probably Stephen Miller, who seems to be the boss of everybody on immigration, ought to come before Congress and explain some of these policies.”

Sheriff Billy Woods, of central Florida's Marion County, emailed deputies Tuesday to tell them of the new mask prohibition, according to local paper the Ocala Star Banner, citing the message.

"My order will stand as is when you are on-duty/working as my employee and representing my Office – masks will not be worn," the email read.

The sheriff allowed for certain exceptions, including for officers who work in prisons, schools, hospitals or with people suspected of being infected with the virus.

‘Trump should know how to be in public with a woman who publicly humiliated him’: Trevor Noah jokes

Published

"The Daily Show's" Trevor Noah couldn't help but notice President Donald Trump's confusion during the Q&A of his daily coronavirus press briefing. Trump was asked about Vice President Joe Biden's pick as Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) as his running mate. In his attacks on Harris, Trump seemed to be spending more time defending Biden than he did attacking him.

Trump claimed the reason he was surprised Biden picked Harris is that she was "very very nasty to Joe Biden," he said she was "probably nastier even than Pocahontas," his nickname for Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA). "She was very disrespectful to Joe Biden."
