You remember Stephen Miller, don’t you? He’s the smug, dead-eyed presidential adviser the White House trots out when it needs someone to deliver its transparently dishonest talking points about immigration. Miller’s track record as a racist xenophobe reportedly stretches back to his high school days, when he dropped a childhood friend for being Latino, showed up to meetings among students of color with the sole purpose of derailing their efforts, and suggested classmates do everything in their power to demean and humiliate janitors. Now, a New York Times profile adds one more gross detail to the Miller file, which was already thick with reasons to dislike the Roy Cohn lookalike.

[Miller] jumped, uninvited, into the final stretch of a girls’ track meet, apparently intent on proving his athletic supremacy over the opposite sex. (The White House, reaching for exculpatory context, noted that this was a girls’ team from another school, not his own.)

Just so we’re clear, the White House confirms that Miller’s latent resentment toward the women who wouldn’t date him in high school was so intense he tried to show them up by competing in a girls’ track meet. This was how he affirmed his self-worth at the time, between writing editorial takedowns of Maya Angelou and screeching about how racism didn’t exist. In college, he filled his time palling around with Richard Spencer and producing propaganda with titles like The Islamic Mein Kampf.

Here’s a video of Miller doing his thing, in case it had slipped your mind.

    One might be tempted to comment on Miller’s losing his hair at a young age & draw some psychological connections.

    Not me.

    I’ll just point out that this is the kind of person who finds a home in the Republican Party. This is the kind of person Trump draws to himself and whose service he accepts.

    • Much like a house which has been the scene of one or more horrific events attracts people prone to do similar acts. That’s the allure Trump has, like the town featured in Steven King’s novel, “Salem’s Lot”.

    I strongly believe that this guy has something to hide which he considers heinous, and tries to cover it by his unseemly behaviour. Chances are, he is gay – knows it — and abhors the idea. Whether he is or not is irrelevant. The problem is that he hates himself, and takes it out on others, and always will. A Roy Cohn imitator he most certainly is.

      There was always the same suspicion about Hitler. Many books written about his so called lover, Eva Braun, state that by her own words, Hitler was uninterested in sex. Men like Hitler are often closet gays because they must retain that external patina of power.

      To me that’s laughable. In their pathetic minds, they can’t be powerful and gay.

    The issue of Stephen Miller is more about Trump than it is about Miller. That Trump has situated Miler in place in the Oval Office is the issue, not who Miller was or is. It is about who Trump is.

  4. Eleanore Whitaker says:

    The mind of all right wingers is predicated upon their own sense of weakness and lust for the power they believe they must have. That’s how Hitler managed to take an entire country and place it in the palm of his hand. Also with Stalin.

    The problem for this little twit Miller is that Americans are far more psychologically sophisticated, at least those of us with well rounded educations. So, Miller looks like what he is: A weak, pathetic wannabe Hitler who believes somehow, some way, he’ll do what Jim Jones, David Koresh and other guys have done: amass his own supporters, sans the religious aspect, of course.

    What Miller misses is his own personal appearance. He looks like a demented fragment of parental dysfunction. Dollar to a donut, Mommy and Daddy were bullies who kept their son in such a tight box, he now feels he needs to get revenge.

    What better revenge mentor can there be but Trump who does nothing that is not predicated upon revenge? Look at who Trump’s friend and mentor was, the obsessed Roy Cohn, who died of AIDs all alone, owing his best personal friends money and without any sympathy from anyone.

    Miller’s 10 seconds of fame fades when Mueller presents Trump with the worst Christmas present of his life: an indictment.

    • latebloomingrandma says:

      I can only hope it comes this Christmas. Then we can shout Merry Christmas, just like Trump wants.

      • Eleanore Whitaker says:

        You’ll find me out in the streets dancing a You know what I find amusing about Trump? He actually believes he can get away with it all ALL the time.

        We call them criminals because their crimes label them as such. We know them by the crimes they commit. Otherwise, we wouldn’t have reason to call them criminals. So Trump, drunk with the same power as Hitler, Stalin and Mussolini, thinks he has the world in the palm of his hand. Most of that comes from the fact that he has always paid his way out of jail.

        Like all power drunks, Trump fails to realize that the closer he gets to an indictment or impeachment, the closer we realize his power must be stripped to stop him from going out in the same blaze of infamy as that Las Vegas shooter…only for Trump with a nuclear world war.

    We didn’t need the WH to verify what was verified 9-12 months ago. Stephen Miller is a creep and serious alt-right nut.
    But what says even more than Miller, or Bannon, is that Chumpo-the-Moron actually brought them in, along with a few others, to be a part of his staff.
    I guess we should all sent black roses to Congress and Senate GOPers for their undying loyalty to what they stand for.
    Everything not American.

  6. America is at the point where it produces with distressing and alarming efficiency mass murderers, psychological misfits like Donald, serial rapists, racists in bulk quantities, and guys like Stephen Miller who possess all the depraved qualities in one neat package.

    Why does this phenomenon of such a quantity and diversity of psychologically imbalanced men who are so morally impotent appear so uniquely American? Sure, Iran has its Shiite fanatics, Saudi Arabia its mentally aberrant men afraid of giving women the right to move about freely—as though both nations’ men have an inherent fear that they can’t control their physical impulses despite their insistence that they’re true Muslims, dutifully saying their prayers 5 times a day.

    But something allows for so many in America to stand out, as especially confused about their role as what’s expected of a human being. There is something peculiarly American which creates a set of social circumstances and a breakdown of moral restraint—causing new arrivals in America to become the opposite of what the earlier generations of inhabitants of many a Trump from other countries were like, before being transformed into a beast once arriving to these shores.

    Too much materialism, too much violence and gun adoration, and a surfeit of self-gratuitous sex-related themes broadcast 24/7 and splashed across Playboy magazines and the like, along with the parallel decline in the influence of the status quo Religions revealed before the 19th century,—all these, and the fear of fellow humans and an insane nationalism all join together to create this gross anomaly we see in America.

    As I see it.

    LOL, article quite funny. Don’t remember anything being mentioned by the Leftist Media about Obama’s youthful years, all the cocaine snorting, alcohol drinking, and hanging with Socialists, like Bill Ayers. LMAO.
