There are a number of Trump staffers who are somewhat controversial. Jason Miller, who is part of Trump’s communications team, is among them. Miller and another former Trump staffer, AJ Delgado, have been locked in a years long court battle over their child born from an extramarital affair.
Despite the controversy surrounding him, Miller has continued to work for Trump and was an important figure during his 2020 reelection bid. So it was no surprise that the comms professional defended Trump after Sunday’s Georgia tape leak. This defense, however, led to Miller being savagely mocked by Jake Tapper.
In an afternoon tweet, Miller wrote, “They published 4 minutes and 31 seconds – where is the other 35 minutes? Georgia Secretary of State Raffensperger is a political hack who doesn’t care about election integrity, nor does he care about telling the entire story. Release the full tape!”
Of course, the entire tape had been released and was easy to find on the internet. CNN’s Jake Tapper replied, “The full call is here and while I have your attention pay your child support.”

The humiliated Miller responded in the usual way someone destroyed online often does, with a childish insult. “You’re a fake news pussy, Jake,” he wrote. “I’d like to see you say that to my face.” The message is currently receiving the dreaded Twitter ratio.
