‘Political cowardice and political stupidity’: Stephen Miller Maul’s McConnell for funding battle

Stephen Miller, a White House adviser to former President Donald Trump, criticized Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky over the continued resolution to fund the government during an appearance on Fox News Tuesday night.

“This is one of Mitch McConnell’s greatest acts of political cowardice and political stupidity conflated. This was a rare moment where the moral course and the opportune course lined up perfectly,” Miller, the founder of America First Legal, told Fox News host Tucker Carlson. “What do I want to say with that? Morality, conscience, humanity demanded that the Republicans force the issue of border security in CR. Introduce an amendment that says no $1 of CR, this funding bill, can be used to resettle more illegal aliens in the U.S. That’s what morality demands.” (RELATED: ‘Lots of Guts’: Mitch McConnell Praises Kyrsten Sinema)


Debate on a continuing resolution began Tuesday in the Senate after Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia agreed to remove a permit reform bill from legislation. A rolling resolution is used to fund the government when regular funding bills are not passed by the end of the fiscal year.

“But what about political expediency, common sense, good strategy? We are days away from a partial. They could have used this as a clarifying moment,” Miller said. “It may be the only clarifying moment in two years to say, who are the good guys? And who are the evildoers in the Senate? Who fights for you and your family and who fights for the cartels and the open borders and the drug traffickers who poison our children?

The United States Customs and Border Protection reported on September 19 that 2,150,639 migrants were found at the border, a new record. Drug overdoses, fueled by fentanyl, killed more than 108,000 Americans in 2021, according to to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

McConnell did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation.
