Jason Miller doesn’t let ‘fake news p***y’ Tapper get away with mocking him on Twitter
Trump campaign senior advisor Jason Miller and CNN host Jake Tapper engaged in a Twitter smackdown over the leaked audio recording of President Trump’s phone call with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. Tapper told his followers that Miller is delinquent on his child support payments and Miller torched Tapper as “a fake news p*ssy.”
President Trump slammed Raffensperger on Twitter, saying that the two had spoken this weekend, and Raffensperger replied, “Respectfully, President Trump: What you’re saying is not true. The truth will come out.” The audio recording of their conversation was then leaked to the Washington Post. The recording allegedly revealed Trump repeatedly berating Raffensperger and Ryan Germany, the general counsel for the secretary of state’s office, over election fraud.
NewsMax and other conservative outlets are calling the claim false concerning pressuring Raffensperger. They contend that the transcript of the call shows Trump demanding an honest accounting of the ballots, which he says would give him more than 11,000 votes.
“I just want to find 11,780 votes which is one more than we have because we won the state,” Trump said. The president was referring to alleged voter fraud and how he feels the election in Georgia was stolen from him.
Miller took umbrage concerning the story and tweeted as much claiming the four and a half minute clip edited and released by WaPo was journalistic crap. He called Raffensperger “a political hack who doesn’t care about election integrity.”
Miller went beast-mode on Tapper by calling him “a fake news p*ssy” and daring him to “say that to my face.”
Tapper responded by linking to the full hour+ recording on the Washington Post and then tweeted at Miller “and while I have your attention pay your child support.” He went on to air several posts by A.J. Delgado, the mother of Miller’s child who has been chronicling her legal battles to obtain child support from him on Twitter.
“They published 4 minutes and 31 seconds – where is the other 35 minutes? @GaSecofState Raffensperger is a political hack who doesn’t care about election integrity, nor does he care about telling the entire story. Release the full tape!” – Jason Miller, Trump 2020 Senior Advisor

According to Delgado, the court ordered Miller to pay child support in July 2020, but he filed an appeal, which she described as costing “more than just paying the child support.” She labeled Miller as a “sociopath.” Delgado also tweeted that Miller has not seen the child since April 2019 and did not send him any birthday or Christmas presents last year.
Delgado told HuffPost that “his income is directly relevant not only to child support and child support arrears he owes our son, but even relevant to attorneys’ fees.”
Many consider Tapper sinking to these types of personal smears as being unprofessional and non-sequitur. That bringing up someone’s legal battles is a dirty pool instead of winning on the merits of your purported argument.
He also has not seen William since April 2019 and did not mail William a bday gift in July OR a single gift (not even a lump of coal) for Christmas. Bc… again… sociopath.

The HuffPost reported in September that the Trump 2020 campaign had not included Miller’s salary in its filings to the Federal Election Commission because Miller could then be forced to pay more child support.
Miller fathered a son with a female colleague during the Trump 2016 campaign. He lives with his wife and children in Virginia while A.J. Delgado, his former coworker, and their son live in Miami.
In an apparent trend among liberals, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) also ripped Miller in December after he tweeted an article about Swalwell and an alleged Chinese spy. Miller had circulated an article on Twitter about Swalwell speaking at an event in 2013 with a Chinese agent who worked for decades for Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA).
