Brooks infamously and repeatedly warned about a “war on whites,” has staunchly supported President Donald Trump including making false claims about voter fraud. He has also falsely claimed mail in voting is “unconstitutional” and that Trump actually won the Electoral College vote by a wide margin.
Miller, the architect of some of Trump’s most racist polices, including his migrant child separation policy, has been appearing on right wing conservative shows to attack President Joe Biden and defend former President Donald Trump. Brooks met with Trump to discuss his upcoming election bid.
Brooks was among those who helped to incite the January 6 insurrection. He later would blame the attack by MAGA supporters on “fascist Antifa,” an oxymoron, despite delivering this speech (below) that day:
Please, don’t be like #FakeNewsMedia, don’t rush to judgment on assault on Capitol. Wait for investigation. All may not be (and likely is not) what appears. Evidence growing that fascist ANTIFA orchestrated Capitol attack with clever mob control tactics.

In 2019 Brooks read from Adolf Hitler’s autobiography, Mein Kampf, on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives, in an attack on Democrats and the media.
Brooks has also dismissed domestic violence as “soap opera news.”
