Former top presidential adviser Stephen Miller ripped President Joe Biden over his performance in office thus far while going on to note that he believes the future viability of the country is literally at stake in the 2022 midterms.
In an interview with Fox News, Miller, who advised then-President Donald Trump on a range of issues including immigration and border security, said that Biden did not have the “presence of mind” to control his own government in the first place, Miller reflected on the “disastrous” half-term Biden has had thus far.
“It’s been the most disastrous first half of a presidency that I think has occurred in American history. And so there needs to be a thunderous repudiation, a historic repudiation in November,” Miller said on Friday.
“And I believe that if there is a very large conservative House majority backed up by a Senate majority, we’ll be able to shut down and unwind some of these policies and prevent truly irreparable and irreversible damage from happening,” he continued.
“That’s the best we can hope for. If that doesn’t happen, I fear the damage will be permanent and irrevocable,” Miller told Fox News.

But he governed a lot more Left before he lost the ’94 midterms,” he said, reflecting on how big Republicans won that year thanks in large part to then-House Minority Leader Newt Gingrich’s “Contract With America.”
“But he was a man who had a viewpoint, who had a philosophy, who had a conviction and a presence of mind,” Miller said, adding that he believes Biden’s mental health has become a serious issue handicapping his presidency.
“Joe Biden is too addled, too old, too deteriorated, and too confused to overrule the Marxist and ultra-Left advisers who are around him and running everything from the Domestic Policy Council to the National Security Council to the Department of Homeland Security to the Department of Education and everything on in between,” the former adviser noted.
“He doesn’t have the presence of mind to control his own government, even if he wanted to,” said Miller.
Miller’s criticisms come on the heels of several warning signs for Biden and his Democratic Party.
Inflation continues to spiral upward despite the Federal Reserve’s efforts to control it with fractional rate increases — much of it driven by the ever-rising cost of gasoline and diesel fuel, both of which have tripled in price in some parts of the country since Trump left office in January 2021. That has substantially rai…
