According to a skin-crawling new report, Senior White House Policy Adviser Stephen Miller apparently once ran onto the field during a girls’ track meet as a way of proving his “athletic supremacy over the opposite sex.”
The incident happened while Miller was attending Santa Monica High School, a wealthy and very liberal learning institution at which Miller first earned his reputation for being a right-wing troll.
Recently The New York Times released a profile on the young balding adviser which featured his early days as a neo-conservative agitator in California.
The profile also featured an incident in which Miller allegedly performed a “semi-striptease” for the editor of his high school newspaper. He reportedly unbuttoned his shirt — exposing an American flag T-shirt — “in protest of an article he found inconsistent with the national interest.”
While the White House denied that the striptease ever took place, they did confirm that Miller did indeed invade a girls’ track meet when he was in high school. They also confirmed that he was motivated by sexism. Via Mediate:
He 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.)
Earlier this year the Washington Post released a video featuring a 16-year-old Miller addressing (perhaps even mentally undressing) the student body at his high school. During a campaign speech for student government, Miller shared his plan to force janitors to pick up after students who wish to throw their trash on the ground.
“Am I the only one,” he asked, “who is sick and tired of being told to pick up my trash when we have plenty of janitors who are paid to do it for us?”
Of course, conservatives are quick to dismiss these antics as “normal” sophomoric high-school behavior. However, Miller has proven time and again that he hasn’t evolved past the adolescent stage of his life. One of the most recent examples of Miller’s stunted development took place when he got into a heated back-and-forth with CNN’s Jim Acosta regarding the Statue of Liberty and immigration.
“The Statue of Liberty says, ‘Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses, yearning to breathe free.’ It doesn’t say anything about speaking English or being a computer programmer,”Acosta said. “Aren’t you trying to change what it means to be an immigrant coming into this country if you’re telling them that you have to speak English?”Miller responded that as a requirement to be naturalized, “you have to speak English,” and continued, “so the notion that speaking English wouldn’t be a part of immigration systems would be very ahistorical.”He continued: “Secondly, I don’t want to get off into a whole thing about history here, but the Statue of Liberty is a symbol of American liberty lighting the world. The poem that you’re referring to was added later (and) is not actually part of the original Statue of Liberty.”
Some creeps never change. It’s unclear if Miller also “collected” the used running shorts from the girl’s locker room so he could conduct further research in his mom’s basement.
