A lengthy profile on White House advisor Stephen Miller in Monday’s New York Times shows he was a complete troll at his liberal California high school, where he joined a girl’s race uninvited just to show that he was faster.
“He jumped, uninvited, into the final stretch of a girls’ track meet, apparently intent on proving his athletic supremacy over the opposite sex,” wrote author Matt Flegenheimer.
When pressed by the paper, the White House pointedly refused to decline the claim but rather told the Times that the girl’s team in question was from a different school. Another incident described by the Times, a patriotic “semi-striptease” also went unchallenged by the White House.
After allies Steve Bannon and Sebastian Gorka were fired, Miller has become one of the last members of President Trump’s nationalist flank still working at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
While unflattering profiles of Miller are nothing new — Univision currently wrote the gold standard — the trollish new nuggets set social media ablaze.
NYT: Mr. Miller once jumped into the final stretch of a women’s track meet, apparently intent on proving his athletic supremacy over the opposite sex.
