The harassment of Trump Administration officials continues, with Senior Advisor Stephen Miller being the latest victim of the outspoken left. But it was his over-the-top reaction that got him trending on Twitter and Hollywood laughing.
Miller is just one of the Trump officials whose harassment was spotlighted in a piece by The Washington Post on Monday, but the details of his story made it stand out in both the best and worst ways possible. Stephen Miller was walking down the street having just picked up $80 worth of takeout sushi when a bartender purportedly shouted out his name. When Miller turned, he says the man flipped him off and cursed at him.
"Outraged, Miller threw the sushi away, he later told his colleagues," as reported by the Post.
Kellyanne Conway, Kristjen Nielsen, Sean Spicer, Steve Bannon and Sarah Huckabee Sanders have all endured hecklers while out in public, as widely reported by the press, but Miller's is the only story with self-sabotage as the response. In most other cases, the Trump official kept their calm, though Sanders did agree to leave a restaurant before her food was served, meaning Miller wasn't the only one who lost out on dinner.
Hollywood immediately latched onto the sushi detail, dragging Miller hard for punishing himself even more for getting harassed. Not to mention, that's nearly $100 worth of food he just tossed away. Most of us would hang onto that through a beating.
Sarah Huckabee was kicked out of a restaurant, Kellyanne Conway was yelled at in a grocery store, and Stephen Miller was cussed out by a bartender… Sounds like you guys are the ones who'd benefit from being held in cages.
Guys, this isn't the way to handle politics. Really? Yelling at Stephen Miller? What you should do is engage him a polite debate until he loses track of the time and then it's dawn and he gets hit by sunlight and turns to ash https://t.co/urSHsW6FPp
Stephen Miller really showed that waiter by throwing that sushi away. Anytime someone flips me off I just take twenties out of my pocket and rip them up, right in front of him, to teach him a lesson about manners.
Stephen Miller threw out almost 100$ of sushi because a citizen with morals/values cursed at him? You showed him, Stephen! Every time some homophobe calls me a stupid dyke, I just take out twenties and start burning them to show them how much I don't care!
