Trump representative Stephen Miller is now taking the stage front and center a the White House and is making a total fool of himself.
A lot of Americans are taking note of the fact that if Saturday Night Live did a skit of him, the perfect person to play the role would be none other than Pee-Wee Herman.

Image likeness aside, where do we start with this guy? Well for one, he just had a weird exchange with CNN’s Jim Acosta about Trump’s illegal immigration program, saying that the poem on the Statue of Liberty doesn’t matter because it was “added later.” Yes, he really said that.
Acosta: What you’re proposing, or what the President is proposing here, does not sound like it’s in keeping with American tradition when it comes to immigration. The Statue of Liberty says, ‘give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses.’ It doesn’t say anything about speaking English or be a computer programmer. Aren’t you trying to change what it means to be an immigrant coming into this country?
Miller first responded on why English should be a requirement, but then started to go into the deep end:
“The poem you’re referring to was added later, it’s not actually a part of the original Statue of Liberty.”
While Miller is correct that it was added later, he completely left out the fact that the poem written by American poet Emma Lazarus was actually used to raise money for the construction of the statue’s pedestal, making it an integral part of it. And, as Acosta notes, it’s widely accepted to be what America stands for.

If that exchange wasn’t enough, while on stage, it was noticed that Miller had what appeared to be dandruff all over his suit jacket.
Miller also addressed the issue of worker visa under Trump’s immigration plan. Note: Trump’s Mar-A-Lago estates has asked to hire more foreign workers for the property, saying in essence, that it couldn’t find Americans to fill jobs such as cooks, waiters, landscapers, etc.
Basically, Trump doesn’t want to set the example for the rest of the country.
With that said, Miller gave a speech promising to “protect U.S. workers.” Talk about hypocrisy.
“This is a major promise to the American people. To push for merit based immigration reform, that protects U.S. workers.”
