Trump advisor leaves high-powered consulting firm after calling House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler 'a f*cking scumbag'
Former 2016 Trump campaign aide Jason Miller has resigned from a high-powered consulting firm following an insulting profanity-filled rant against Rep. Jerry Nadler, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee.
Miller, a close ally of President Donald Trump, has left his position as managing director of the firm Teneo, telling the Daily Beast, “I have parted ways with Teneo by mutual consent and look forward to formally announcing my next move in the coming weeks. Teneo is an incredible firm and without a doubt, the premier CEO consultancy on the planet. They have always been great to me, and I’m proud to have called them teammates for the past two and a half years.”
Last week, Miller visited Twitter and railed against Nadler for, among other things, his subpoena of Hope Hicks, who served as White House director of communications under the Trump Administration in 2017 and 2018. Hicks answered questions from members of the House Judiciary Committee in a closed-door hearing last week.
Miller, in his series of tweets, said of Nadler, “He’s a f*cking scumbag. Anyone obsessed with attacking innocent Hope Hicks should take a long walk off a short pier.”
Miller attacked Nadler over his weight more than once on Twitter, posting, “Fat f*cks gonna fat f*ck” as well as “You’re fat and nasty. Don’t harass Hope and then try to play nice.” And Miller also tweeted, “You’re gross, you fat f*ck.”
However, Miller has since not only deleted those anti-Nadler tweets, but also, his entire Twitter account.
Miller isn’t the only Republican who has insulted Nadler's weight. Trump has done it as well, calling the veteran New York congressman “Fat Jerry.”
A veteran of right-wing politics, Miller served as a communications adviser for Sen. Ted Cruz’ presidential campaign in 2016. But after Cruz left the 2016 GOP presidential primary, Miller became senior communications adviser for Trump’s campaign. And after Trump defeated Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in the general election, Miller was part of Trump’s transition team in late 2016/early 2017.
