Trump surrogates circling the wagons defending his misogyny towards Mika Brzezinski, including former communications advisor Jason Miller.
Jason Miller, a former communications advisor to President Donald Trump, echoed the White House talking point that the president should be able to attack MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski because she has made personal comments about him. However, Miller thought that she should have taken the high road instead of “punching back 10 times harder.”
“What I would have said is, ‘look, let’s go and call out the fact that Joe and her had been attacking you for weeks and months now,’” Miller said about his own suggestion for deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
“The fact they have attacked his mental state and compared him to someone with dementia,” he continued. “They call him an embarrassment on the world stage and go and lay these different comments out and make them go and defend their previous comments. The way the president laid it out, it gave an opening for folks to come back and criticize him. But he has every right to come back and push back.”
In the next breath, however, Miller said that Brzezinski doesn’t also have that same freedom. More from the Raw Story here.
