“American Carnage” Speechwriter Thinks Biden’s Congressional Address Lacked “Warmth”
Beginning with Sen. Tim Scott’s (R-S.C.) factually challenged response to President Joe Biden’s address to Congress Wednesday evening, Republicans have uniformly stuck to GOP talking points to criticize the president’s bold policy proposals. Then there’s Stephen Miller, arguably the most dour-looking person in national politics today.
The former aide to former President Donald Trump, architect of Trump’s anti-immigration and child separation policies and author of some of some of Trump’s darkest speeches, never appears to harbor any emotion as he peers out at the world through his sunken, shadowy eyes. So it’s understandable why the reactions to his Twitter review of Biden’s speech completely tore him limb from skinny limb.
“So far, this speech is written in the “laundry list” style – the least inspired format for a congressional address,” Miller tweeted. “It is striking just how tedious & unoriginal the rhetoric was in Biden’s speech. Also, no outreach, no bipartisanship, no surprises, not warmth – a lifeless and dry address.”

Miller, along with Steve Bannon, was the co-author of Donald Trump’s 2017 “American carnage” inauguration address that described the “rusted out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape of our nation.” That’s the speech that prompted former president George W. Bush to whisper to former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, “Well, that was some weird s***.”

Not only are you a rabid white nationalist hobgoblin, you were also an extraordinarily shitty speech writer.

It is striking how the worst speech writer in American history, weighs in on the quality of speeches.

Apparently Stephen Miller thinks that any speech that doesn't spew hate from a raging lunatic just doesn't have any warmth.

Since being tossed out his government job Miller has made it his life’s work to oppose everything President Biden says or does. Just yesterday the legal group he founded with former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows filed a lawsuit against the Biden administration claiming that it is discriminating against white farmers and ranchers by setting aside $5 billion in the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan to correct long-standing wrongs against “socially disadvantaged” farmers and ranchers.
