MSNBC host and former Republican congressman Joe Scarborough on Tuesday offered up a new nickname for a senior White House aide who Scarborough said is causing big problems.

Scarborough said Miller, who worked on Trump’s campaign and is now a senior adviser on policy, is helping to damage the new White House’s relationship with Congress by writing controversial executive orders without input from experts and lawmakers.

“It’s ‘Little Miller’ now,” Scarborough said Tuesday, after his co-host Mika Brzezinski offered it as new label for Miller. “Donald, You can start calling him Little Miller.”

The moniker is a throwback to a teasing nickname Trump slapped on his Republican primary rival Marco Rubio.

“It’s not Little Marco anymore, it’s Little Miller,” said Scarborough. “Little Miller running around thinking he can — actually he’s a Little Napoleon. And he’s thinking that he can cut out generals.”

On Friday, the Trump administration put out a new executive order that temporarily barred some refugees in the Middle East from entering the country. But the order reportedly did not receive input from many top officials, including from the intelligence community and from Congress, and they were only told about it shortly before it was rolled out by the White House.

Some have suggested that Miller, who is in his early 30s, played an outsized role in creating that executive order and others.

“He thinks he knows better,” said Brzezinski.

“Little Miller, you don’t,” said Scarborough. “You just don’t. And you have created a storm…”
