What to Watch

What Everyone Is Watching

  • White House advisor Stephen Miller’s heated exchange with CNN’s Jim Acosta. Miller was discussing the Trump administration’s new merit-based immigration program when Acosta asked if it went against the poem on the Statue of Liberty, which includes the famous lines, "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses." "The poem you were referring to was added later," Miller shot back. "It's not actually part of the original Statue of Liberty."

What’s Worth Watching
