Trump adviser Stephen Miller tried out a new hair do while defending the president’s agenda on CBS News Sunday -- but apparently lost all that newly found luxurious hair in just three days before an interview with CNN.
Miller was roundly mocked Sunday when he appeared on CBS’ “Face the Nation” sporting some type of fake hair that clearly did not match the color of his natural hair.
It looked even more ridiculous close-up.
“How should we talk about Stephen Miller’s hair?” asked Washington Post columnist Monica Heese. “Mock it? Ignore it? Understand it as a metaphor for our own vanity and mortality? The smart thing would be to simply refuse to touch it with a 10-foot pole . . . but then how could we make sure it’s really dead?”
“Toupee? Not exactly, a mob of viewers decided,” she added. “What we were dealing with seemed to be something more spray-on in nature, the kind of hair-in-a-canister marketed to men in the wee hours of cable, sandwiched between catheter commercials and herbal testosterone.”
On Thursday, Miller returned to television to be interviewed by CNN’s Wolf Blitzer. Within a matter of just three days, the senior White House aide appeared to have lost all his hair.
“We don’t have to yell”: Miller was chided by Blitzer during the interview as he floundered while defending the resignation of Defense Secretary James Mattis, Trump’s planned withdrawal from Syria, and the possible government shutdown over Trump’s border wall demands.
“Stephen, hold on a minute. Calm down a minute, we don’t have to yell,” Blitzer said as Miller ranted about the dangers he claimed were posed by undocumented immigrants.
“These are important policy issues that we’re discussing, the American people have a right to know where you and the president, the White House stands,” Blitzer added.
