Nosferatu! <crosses self>

I do not believe in the supernatural, but the evidence is growing that the Trump regime is so desperate for support that they are raiding graveyards — probably Nazi graveyards — to dig up the undead and prop them up on a stage. Case in point: look into the dead eyes of Stephen Miller. He’s horrifying.

He even appalls Joe Scarborough. I think we’re going to have to invade the White House with buckets of holy water and wooden stakes and torches sometime soon.

    The thing is, yes, this is horrible, but no one who agrees with Trump is going to worry about the hyperventilating and yakkety-smakkety from Scarborough and crew – if they watch it in the first place. On Fox they’re cheering, of course.

  2. says

    Horrifying video. I looked him up in Wikipedia. One of his major previous gigs is that he was press spokesperson for Michele Bachmann. You might give us some insight on what that means.

    With that many sociopaths in the same room, how long will it take before they start knifing one another?

  4. Nerd of Redhead, Dances OM Trolls says

    It was obvious from the whole election cycle, that Trump felt he could be what he considered to be a “strong leader”, and govern by fiat. Every action by any president is able to be scrutinized and questioned by Congress and the Judiciary. He has surrounded himself with liars who will push the line that his actions and orders are simple unquestionable. That is simply unacceptable, and is why the Resistance is growing.

    Cross posted from the Political Madness All the Time thread.

    White House senior policy advisor Stephen Miller went on all the Sunday morning shows to repeat quite a few Trump administration lies.

    On NBC’s Meet the Press, Miller said,

    A district judge in Seattle cannot make immigration law for the United States, cannot give foreign nationals and foreign countries rights they do not have, and cannot prevent the President of the United States from suspending the admission of refugees from Syria. What the judges did, both at the 9th and at the district level, was to take power for themselves that belonged squarely in the hands of the President of the United States.

    We’ve heard a lot of talk about how all the branches of government are equal. That’s the point. They are equal. There’s no such thing as judicial supremacy.

    On ABC’s This Week, Miller said,

    Having worked before on a campaign in New Hampshire, I can tell you that this issue of bussing voters into New Hampshire is widely known by anyone who’s worked in New Hampshire politics. It’s very real, it’s very serious. This morning on this show is not the venue for me to lay out all the evidence.

    Go to New Hampshire, talk to anybody who’s worked in politics there for a long time. Everybody’s aware of the problem in New Hampshire […]

    If this is an issue that interests you, then we can talk about it more in the future. Many highly qualified people, like Kris Kobach, the Kansas secretary of state, have looked deeply into this issue and have confirmed it to be true and have put together evidence, and I suggest you invite Kris Kobach onto your show and he can walk you through some of the evidence of voter fraud in greater detail.

    OMFG, Kris Kobach as a reliable reference? Also, “This morning on this show is not the venue for me to lay out all the evidence” translates to “There is no evidence.”

    As Esme Cribb of Talking Points Memo noted:

    When Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach (R) filed his first criminal charges regarding alleged instances of double-voting in 2015, all three defendants were registered Republicans. A local prosecutor apparently declined to bring two of the three cases, and all three complaints lacked detail about the alleged double-voting involved.

    As George Stephanopoulos pointed out: “Just for the record, you have provided absolutely no evidence.”

    On Fox News Sunday, Miller said,

    The President’s powers here are beyond question.

    That was in reference to the executive order barring visitors from seven predominantly Muslim countries from entering the United States.

    Trump liked the Stephen Miller show:

    Congratulations Stephen Miller- on representing me this morning on the various Sunday morning shows. Great job!

    One of the many outrageous things Miller said was:

    […] our opponents, the media, and the whole world will soon see, as we begin to take further actions, that the powers of the president to protect our country are very substantial and will not be questioned.

    He looks like he’s had some Columbian Marching Powder for breakfast. Come to think of it, that might explain a few things about the Trump administration …

  8. Saad says

    And I thought Spicer had the appearance of an unnamed Nazi extra from a cheap WWII film.

    This guy’s not even trying not to look like Goebbels.

  9. Doc Bill says

    Miller has a BS in political science from Duke and that’s it. No advanced degree, no legal experience, no nothing. He’s been a communications director. However, he seems to have a huge fascist streak in him. Will not be questioned!

    Trump will never realize the difference between being a president and being a boss. He’s been an autocratic boss his entire life. No board to report to. Trump is king.

    He has surrounded himself with like-minded people and, yes, they are going to push the envelope to see how far they can project their power. We’ll be in real trouble if the DHS starts ignoring the courts. We’ll be in a coup.

    What I find maddening is the silence from congress, their inability to even name a post office, and the toothless press who let these liars have air time.

  10. quotetheunquote says

    I don’t know what that is – something that Chris Columbus took before wiping out yet another village?

    Or do you mean Colombian Marching Powder … that, I have an inkling of (although I’ve never heard it called that).

  11. thirdmill says

    The people who went into hysterics about Hillary’s emails might be interested to know that at a dinner party filled mostly with people who don’t have security clearances, he had two of his aides shine their cell phone lights on a top secret document he was reading about the North Korean missile test. I’m sure it’s just a matter of time before our national security apparatus decides he’s too dangerous and finds a way to disable him.

  12. peptron says

    So I’m not the only one to think that Stephen Miller looks (and speaks) like Joseph Goebbels. I’d be ready to bet that it’s not an accident and is intentionnal on his part.

    Undead Goebbels… Something makes me think that it’s not the first cycle and that Goebbels was himself a raised cadaver of some previous sociopath.

  13. numerobis says

    Who’s the prop at Scarborough’s right who keeps trying to say something but Joe just talks right over her? Why even have her there?

    Indeed. In fact, that line from Stephen Miller straightaway reminds me of Joseph McCarthy’s “I have here in my hand a list…”

  15. naturalcynic says

    I would imagine that those who think that Miller’s comments are reasonable would aspirate their vomit if the same thing came from an Obama aide.

    @ #10
    Congress won’t object to anything Trump or his minions do, unless and until Trump doesn’t go along with some reactionary legislation they’re putting in place. Until then, they just ignore it all as background noise.

  17. Gorogh, Lounging Peacromancer says

    @numerobis #20, I was having the same thought. Also, it wasn’t just the guy to her left talking over her, but the one on the other side of the table, too. Pretty much ruined the segment.

    On topic, what an asshole, that Miller guy – him, and everyone who hired him and tolerates him spewing this authoritarian BS.

  18. EigenSprocketUK says

    #20 Numerobis: In about 90% of the clips of Scarborough/Chandler I’ve seen, he just will not stop talking over his female co-host.
    I keep waiting for one of his guests to say “Shut up, man! You’re filling time while you think of the next thing to interrupt with. For everyone’s sake, shut up! Let the woman speak!”
    It’s almost as though they agree in rehearsal not to rant and ramble, but he just thinks fuck it: I’m the star.

  19. What a Maroon, living up to the 'nym says

    The woman is Mika Brzezinski, daughter of Zbigniew, who was Jimmy Carter’s National Security Advisor (the post currently held by Michael Flynn, though perhaps not for long). She’s a longtime journalist and co-host of the program.

  20. johnlee says

    “This morning on this show is not the venue for me to lay out all the evidence”.
    Some other time, then?
    OK, then, Stevie boy, name the time and the place.

  21. blf says

    I think Miller looks like he could be Putin’s son, not a vampire or other member of the undead.

    Nah, the KGB’s voodoo reanimation project claims to be more successful than the CIA’s.

  22. slithey tove (twas brillig (stevem)) says

    SCOTUS nullifying unconstitutional Executive Oder is NOT an action of making SCOTUS higher in the hierarchy of powers. He is implying that “equal” beaches of government can never interfere with one another regardless of whether their action is Constitutional.
    45 really wants to turn US into dictatorship thinking such is GREAT

  23. Alt-X says

    man that was weird. Dilbert yelling at the camera while, the poor lady trying to finish his sentences. The team of yes men sitting quietly by. Never seen anything like it before. TV is weird.

    The creep never blinks.

    He doesn’t need to blink because he doesn’t interact with the electromagnetic quantum field. His apparent image is nothing but a CGI imposition upon local recording devices.
