A former top aide on Jeb Bush’s Republican presidential campaign delivered a grade-A burn during a CNN panel Thursday afternoon, revealing during the broadcast that the panel’s Donald Trump supporter needed a booster chair.
“His support it waning right now among the very conservative, among people who go to church every week,” Tim Miller, now an adviser to the anti-Trump super PAC Our Principles, said of the Republican frontrunner.
“Now here’s the thing, the Donald Trump guys try to seem tough, they try to seem strong,” Miller said, punctuating each point with a gesture at Andy Dean, a conservative commentator who backs Trump.
“We are tough. We’re winning,” Dean cut in.
“That’s why you’re sitting in a booster chair right now, because you want to seem tall and strong,
“Ouch,” another member of the panel says.
Dean tries to recover: “We’re winning. We’re winning. I have big hands.”
“This is what the Donald Trump people like to do,” Miller said.
“Let’s compare hands after this,” Dean replied.
“It’s not strong to insult people of a certain religion,” Miller said. “It is really weak and it is really insecure.”
