Comedian Samantha Bee claims she has figured out why The New York Times chose not to release the recording of their interview with embattled White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller. 

“No nation can have the policy that whole classes of people are immune from immigration law or enforcement,” Miller told the Times in the intervie which sparked controversy amid fallout from Trump's child separation policy. “It was a simple decision by the administration to have a zero tolerance policy for illegal entry, period. The message is that no one is exempt from immigration law.”

“The answer is SHOCKING,” Bee’s “Full Frontal” Twitter account joked about why the audio was never released.  The tweet accompanied a short clip pretending to be Miller’s June 16 interview with Times reporters Julie Hirschfeld Davis and Michael Shear.
