Teenaged Stephen Miller: #DoYourJob, Janitors

Stephen Miller’s high-profile weekend inspired some of his high school classmates to share their memories of him on Twitter. These were not flattering, as one might expect given the liberal nature of his hometown, Santa Monica, and the dogged conservatism that got Miller where he is today — at President Donald Trump’s right hand, with Steve Bannon.

Silverman spent several hours on Twitter dredging up memories of Miller and flagellating himself for not arguing with his classmate when he still had the chance.

Another former classmate also weighed in.

And in a letter to a local newspaper, the 16-year-old Miller criticized his school’s treatment of Spanish-speaking students, claiming that it insulted them by softening its standards.

“By providing a crutch now, we are preventing Spanish speakers from standing on their own,” Miller wrote. “As politically correct as this may be, it demeans the immigrant population as incompetent, and makes a mockery of the American ideal of personal accomplishment.”

To be sure, Miller has many defenders and fans. Trump tweeted a special thanks for his stalwart performance on the Sunday shows, and the conservative establishment lined up to defend him when the New York Times called him an inexperienced gadfly.
