“Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough blasted Trump aide Stephen Miller for his role in the executive order travel ban, “because this weekend was a disgrace.”

The MSNBC personality said he didn’t think anybody anticipated the backlash that Trump’s executive order created but it’s something that the White House “better learn quickly.”

Miller, who was named by the L.A. Times as a “major architect of the refugee and visa ban,” was attacked by Scarborough for his lack of experience.

“And people, not to mention his name again, Stephen Miller better learn very quickly if you’re going to have the President of the United States sign something, you better check it out with the other agencies,” Scarborough said.

Scarborough continued: “I know you’re almost 33… and by the time you’re 35, maybe you’ll know how Washington and the White House really works. If you’re still around. I hope you’re not, because this weekend was a disgrace and it’s all on your shoulders.”

Trump’s executive order, signed Friday, ended refugee entry into the United States for 120 days, and barred all citizens of seven predominantly Muslim nations from entering the U.S. for the next three months.

The order set off confusion and chaos at airports worldwide as officials seemed unclear how to implement it. White House senior advisor Reince Preibus said those holding so-called green cards as permanent U.S. residents should not be subject to the order.

Meanwhile thousands gathered at airports around the country on Saturday to protest the detention of scores of travelers from the seven countries, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Libya, Yemen and Somalia.
