Miller's remark was an apparent reference to Trump's skin tone — often noted as overly orange and suspected to be the result of fake tanning product. 
The tweet came amid a repeated punching match between Trump and Bush at the debate, in which Bush accused the billionaire of being "a guy who gets his foreign policies from the shows" and "a man who insults his way to the nomination."
