Stephen Miller is a 31-year-old man who worked for Jeff Sessions when he was a Senator from Alabama. Now he works in the White House and is rumored to be in line to be the next Communications Director.

Miller is the guy who explained why the Emma Lazarus poem attached to the Statue of Liberty is no longer relevant. That won him plaudits from his colleagues.

John Oliver somehow obtained a tape that was made when Stephen Miller ran for Class President of his high school in uber-privileged Santa Monica. Watch it and you will understand why he was attracted to Sessions, Bannon, and Trump.

By the way, John Oliver’s takedown of rightwing talkshow host Alex Jones (the guy who spread the vicious claim that the Sandy Hook massacre was a hoax) is well worth watching. In fact, it is both informative and hilarious. If you watch, watch it to the very end, where Oliver does a very funny parody sketch.
