Stephen Miller Is ‘Waffen-SS,’ Enjoys Border Photos, Says White House Adviser

While criticism of President Trump’s “zero-tolerance” immigration policy remains strong, White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller reportedly has been enthusiastic about the results.

“Stephen actually enjoys seeing those pictures at the border,” an outside White House adviser told Vanity Fair. “He’s a twisted guy, the way he was raised and picked on. There’s always been a way he’s gone about this. He’s Waffen-SS.”

Miller has become the face of the movement, which led to the separation of immigrant families at the border. More than 2,000 children are believed to still be without their families. On Twitter, he has been increasingly identified as an actual Nazi.

Trump recently signed an executive order reversing his administration’s policy, but he returned to his firm stance on immigration reform Thursday, hours before before GOP House members postponed a vote on a pair of bills to address the issue, both of which face stiff opposition.
