WATCH CNN’s Kirsten Powers SHUT DOWN A Former Trump Aide For Calling Kamala Harris ‘Hysterical’

You’ve probably seen Jason Miller, a former campaign aide to President Trump, on cable news shows over the past few months. He’s such a partisan that he’d probably defend the president if he’d been caught stealing teddy bears from babies.

But Miller got his head handed to him on CNN Tuesday night when he accused California Senator Kamala Harris of “hysteria” for the way she questioned Attorney General Jeff Sessions when he testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee earlier in the day. CNN commentator Kirsten Powers challenged Miller, asking:

“How was Sen. Harris hysterical?. I don’t really understand that. I mean, she was asking some tough questions.”

Rather than reply to the question, Miller accused Senator Harris of using her questions of Sessions as a “completely partisan screed.”

Powers refused to relent, again asking Miller:

“But how was that hysterical?”

Miller:

“From my perspective ― my, I would say, objective perspective ― I mean it was … it didn’t seem like there was any effort to try to get to a real question or get to the bottom of it.”

Then Powers used fact to prove what Miller was really trying to say:

“I think she asked a lot of questions, actually. She was very dogged, there’s no question, but I wouldn’t say she was any more dogged than Ron Wyden was, would you? Would you say that?”

To that, Miller replied:

“Look, I have my opinion on that. I think she was hysterical. I don’t think that Senator Wyden was really trying to get to the bottom of answers either.”

That’s when Powers showed that Miller was falling back on a double standard:

“But he wasn’t hysterical and she was. OK, I just wanted to clear that up. Got it.”

Trump acolyte Jeffrey Lord then piped up and said “hysteria is a neutral quality.”

So Kirsten Powers dropped the nuclear bomb of truth to shut down both Miller and Lord, commenting:

“And yet it’s just women that usually are called hysterical.”
