How Can We Miss You If You Won’t Go Away

White House adviser Stephen Miller was escorted off the set of CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday after a contentious interview with host Jake Tapper.

Two sources close to the situation told Business Insider that after the taping was done, Miller was asked to leave several times.

He ignored those requests and ultimately security was called and he was escorted out, the sources said.

CNN declined to comment.

The White House did not respond to Business Insider’s request for comment.

So anti-chain migration (whose family escaped/survived the Holocaust because America allowed them to chain migrate to the US) enthusiast Stephen Miller is as obnoxious off the air as he is on the air. Good to know.

This is also a good way to get arrested. And be on the receiving end of a restraining order. Creep gonna creepy.

    Chain migration is the framing used by anti-immigrant hate groups like Numbers USA, for family based immigration, I think we should not use their framing and dignify it.

    Harper’s Bazaar has the transcript of Oprah’s speech at the Globes.

    The closing graph:

    In my career, what I’ve always tried my best to do, whether on television or through film, is to say something about how men and women really behave. To say how we experience shame, how we love and how we rage, how we fail, how we retreat, persevere, and how we overcome. I’ve interviewed and portrayed people who’ve withstood some of the ugliest things life can throw at you, but the one quality all of them seem to share is an ability to maintain hope for a brighter morning, even during our darkest nights. So I want all the girls watching here, now, to know that a new day is on the horizon! And when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are right here in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men, fighting hard to make sure that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say ‘Me too’ again.”

    @Ruckus: No, but what’s really surprising and surprisingly inspiring is that he didn’t get away with it.

    I went to high school w/plenty of Republican debate-team types, and they all made me nervous, because they specifically used their developing verbal sparring skills to overpower others, not to outsmart them.

    Under Bush/Cheney, the only press person I remember really pushing back against all the catapulting of propaganda was Colbert’s performance at the whatsit dinner. Color me gobsmacked to find Don Lemon and even more so Jake Tapper to be at the forefront of journalists pushing back against the autocrats. The former press secretary too, I’m blanking on her name.

    Stephen Miller is someone I would walk out of an elevator or room to avoid just based on those dead eyes alone. I am glad he didn’t get away with his domineering behavior at least that once.

    An Iranian oil tanker collided with a bulk freighter and caught fire off China’s east coast, leaving the tanker’s entire crew of 32 missing and causing it to spill oil into the sea, authorities said Sunday.
    [snip]
    State-run China Central Television reported Sunday evening that the tanker was still floating and burning, and that oil was visible in the water.

    It was not clear, however, whether the tanker was still spilling oil. The size of the oil slick caused by the accident also was not known. Source

    Remember the scene when DeNiro pointedly told the security guards to escort the bonehead cowboy off the premises who had refused to take his feet off the gambling table in the movie Casino? In the old days, security guards everywhere could indeed get away with occasionally opening an exit door with the head of a schmuck, just like in the movie. But no one can fairly blame MSNBC security for refusing to do that with Miller today. Nowadays there are just too many damn cameras everywhere to risk it, and more’s the pity in this instance..

    @schrodingers_cat: Just to throw this out there, “Chain Migration” is the term that’s been used to describe in academic settings the reason why different ethnic groups cluster in locations with others that share the same language, culture values and all that. If you were migrating to the US from Norway in the 19th century for example, you weren’t going to Fargo for the weather. What’s really annoying to a pendant like me is that the term now is being used by the idiot-right to describe the fact that US immigration policy wants to allow the families of people who are already here join those who are here legally already.

    I’m off to bed juicers…before i go do yourselves a favor a read about the woman Oprah talked about in her Globes speech and how her story was integral motivational part in the Civil Rghts movement, particularly as it pertains to the legacy of Rosa Parks…

    @avaThis woman is not a footnote in history. Her 1944 rape by white thugs is a CRITICAL part of the fight for civil rights in America. Read her story please. And know her name. Mrs. Recy Taylor. A beautiful warrior. May she rest in peace and power.

    @Comrade Colette Collaboratrice: I second the Mucinex recommendation. There are also generics available; the active ingredient is guaifenesin. This is the expectorant that thins out the mucus. In case of a dire, incessant cough, you’d want a cough suppressant as well; Dextromethoran is king of the OTC ingredients there.

    Coricidan is great stuff, but as Adam notes, be wary of doubling up on things like Acetominophen or the NSAIDs.

    @eemom:

    It strikes me that I have some kind of illness.

    LOL, I feel your pain about downtown DC and yes, you have an illness afflicting a majority of the country. Enjoy the book.

    PS Can’t find a Metro ride to at least avoid the parking hassle?

    @Comrade Colette Collaboratrice: I tried Mucinex last week and ended up puking etc. Side effects: “nausea, vomiting, diarrhea” Just FYI and be aware. Maybe not have an empty stomach when taking it.

    @Comrade Colette Collaboratrice: IANAMD, but that sounds like the flu(body aches), I’d get him to a MD and get a script for Tamiflu. The flu this year is really bad and that will reduce the severity of the symptoms. When I had “The Cold”, I took Mucinex DM-Max for the cough.

    Oprah was pretty damn awesome tonight.
    I hope it matters. I hope the Wolff book matters. I hope this is all adding up to something.

    @Adam L Silverman: And nook, from Barnes and Noble. I’ve read about a third of it, and it confirms an awful lot of what we’ve surmised. It’s pretty good.

    @Comrade Colette Collaboratrice: In descending order of usefulness for me: Robitussin, Nyquil, Mucinex. I’m also using an OTC nasal spray, Flonase and my asthma inhaler because at times it has felt like a massive asthma attack.

    I don’t know if this is the flu or just a very nasty cold, but I’ve been sick since Christmas Eve and I’m damned tired of it. I have been to the doctor twice and the last time she prescribed Robitussin with Codeine, which helped me sleep but I’d forgotten just why I shouldn’t have codeine at all: it’s like the worst hangover possible including bed-spins.

    @1000 flouncing lurkers (was fidelio): My great grandfather and two brothers traveled to Chicago from Toronto in 1862. His father was from Ireland (although that was suppressed within the Canadian part of the family), his mother was John Freeman’s granddaughter (see: Battle of Saratoga).
    I don’t think anyone ever asked him for papers. I’m pretty sure he was never naturalized, and I just realized that I don’t know if he was registered to vote but the stories I’ve heard of the old boy make me think he probably did.

    @opiejeanne: Codeine is a cough suppressant as well as a pain control med. Fortunately I can buy it over-the-counter here in the UK, compounded with ibuprofen or paracetamol. Use it for night times to get some sleep but coughing is necessary to get thick crud out of your lungs and bronchial tubes so cut it out during the day.

    The other thing that I use codeine for is migraines, for me it’s the only pain-killer that will stop one in its tracks.

    Thank you. That “phrase” is another dog whistle I’ve been ranting about.

    @trollhattan: my mom worked with a lickette who had to give up the gig when her pregnancy prevented her from fitting into a costume that was either a barrel or a cigar.
    I always liked spotting him at the city center in Mill Valley on Dipsea day, loafing around and casting aspersions at the Morris Dancers.
