No one goes from zero to crazy quite like House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif). Whether it’s calling a GOP tax bill the beginning of “Armageddon,” or saying national reciprocity will invite convicted criminals to shoot their significant others, she really knows how to turn the hysterics up to 11.
And never one to disappoint, Pelosi weighed in on the heated interview between CNN’s Jake Tapper and Trump’s policy adviser Stephen Miller. All on its own, the fireworks that occurred during the interview were entertaining enough, but Pelosi took to Twitter and threw her two cents in.
According to her, Miller is 100 percent proof that white supremacists are still whispering in Trump’s ear, and guiding him policy-wise.
“The bigoted world view that Bannon pushed remains at the WH,” tweeted Pelosi. “White supremacists still have the ear of Trump and are shaping national policy through their hate-filled lenses. Yes, that means Stephen Miller who must be removed.”
That’s right, folks. According to Pelosi, Miller is a white supremacist.

As Cunningham wrote earlier today, Miller’s part of the interview did not at all come off well. But to say he’s a white supremacist when nothing Miller said or did was remotely white supremacist was a fast trip to Crazytown. He’s not a white supremacist…in fact, he’s Jewish.
Pelosi and facts were never close. For the California congresswoman, it’s all about what phrase can be the most sensational. The most terrifying. Thus calling Miller, a Jewish man, a white supremacist is no sweat. The fact that it reeks of desperation be damned.
No one is quite sure if Pelosi is saying these things because she truly believes them, or if she’s doing it to generate the necessary fear that will drive people away from her political enemies, and right into the voting booths to keep her and her colleagues in power. However, what I can be sure of is that the fear generates the very type of blind outrage that infects the minds of many a protester that takes to the streets to either chant slogans or destroy property.
