Trump Attacks Muslim Congresswoman After She Calls Stephen Miller A White Nationalist

While members of the Trump administration continue to drop like flies one advisor who manages to cling on like a stubborn dingleberry is Stephen Miller.

At just 33 years old Miller is best known for his interesting hair choices and extreme views. He is supposedly the most right-wing voice in Trump’s ear on immigration and the architect of some of Trump’s most regressive and inhumane immigration policies such as separating migrant children from their families.

Representative Ilhan Omar of Minnesota called out Miller’s role in a recent tweet, sharing an article about Miller’s influence on Trump’s immigration policies and saying: “Stephen Miller is a white nationalist. The fact that he still has influence on policy and political appointments is an outrage.”

In response Trump took to his favored medium, Twitter, sharing a Fox Business clip in which guest Jeff Ballabon accused Omar of “assaulting Jews” and of being “the most dangerous anti-Semite we’ve ever seen.”

He further quoted the Fox Business guest saying it was “completely unacceptable for Congresswoman Omar to target Jews, in this case Stephen Miller.”

Prior to Trump’s tweets his loyal, if not very bright, son Don Jr. had already chimed in to call Omar the “head of the Farrakhan Fan Club,” claim that she is spreads “anti-semitic bigotry” and to decry her for her words about Miller.

Omar, one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress, along with Rashida Tlaib, has become a favorite target of the right wing in recent months after her criticism of an Israeli lobbying group was decried as anti-semitic by a series of disingenuous Republican morons.

As such Omar has been the target of threats and Islamophobic propaganda attacks since her election both from random lunatics and from the GOP itself. (Republicans would of course swear that their repeated attacks have nothing to do with the whole muslim thing.)

For her part, Omar is not backing down. The Congresswoman tweeted about Miller again in the wake of Trump’s comments.

Unsurprisingly the internet disagreed with Trump’s assessment of the situation and was nice enough to correct him.
