Far-right Trump aide refused to befriend Latino and took it ‘personally’ when classmates spoke Spanish: report

Published

on

Stephen Miller, the far-right Trump White House aide known for his hard-line immigration views, reportedly has a long history of race baiting Latinos dating all the way back to high school.

In New York Times profile of Miller, some of his former high school classmates claim that he was overtly hostile to Latino students, and would get angry at them for speaking Spanish to one another in hallways.

“He tended to make some of the Spanish language stuff very personal,” classmate Moises Castillo told the Times. “There was a ‘if you’re not speaking English, perhaps you should go somewhere else.'”

Jason Islas, another former classmate of Miller’s, tells the Times that Miller one time even cited Islas’ Latino heritage as a reason that the two of them could not be friends.

“He mentioned my Latino heritage as one of the reasons,” Islas said. “I remember coming away from the conversation being like, ‘O.K., that’s that.'”

The White House disputed this particular account, although it couldn’t dispute an old student newspaper editorial that Miller wrote in which he attacked bilingual morning announcements before questioning why there were “usually very few, if any, Hispanic students in my honors classes, despite the large number of Hispanic students that attend our school.”

While it might sound like something out of "The X-Files," Navy pilots have been seeing UFOs, and U.S. Senators now want to know what's happening.

According to Politico, three more senators met with Pentagon officials for a classified briefing Wednesday about encounters pilots are having with unidentified aircraft. It seems the Pentagon is getting more and more requests by officials with high clearances to figure out what's happening.

The crafts are, at their most basic, nothing more than "unidentified aircraft," and while it isn't likely they're little green men, there are some senators who might have concerns about whether these UFOs are actually a foreign adversary.

Wall Street Journal issues blistering op-ed asking Trump what the point is of a second term

Published

on

In a blistering op-ed, the Wall Street Journal is asking President Donald Trump what the point of a second term is since he hasn't done anything in his first term.

During his rally in Orlando Tuesday, Trump repeated the same tired lines and same tired policies from 2016. The "Promises Made, Promises Kept" slogan shown over the crowd, yet the supporters didn't understand the irony.

"The most striking fact of his speech was how backward looking it was," the editorial board said. "Every incumbent needs to remind voters of his record, Mr. Trump more than most because the media are so hostile."

‘Crosses a line’: New York Times publisher unleashes on Trump for accusing paper of ‘treason’

Published

on

On Wednesday, New York Times publisher A. G. Sulzberger wrote a blistering editorial in the Wall Street Journal, saying that President Donald Trump's latest attack on his paper "crosses a line."

First it was the "the failing New York Times." Then "fake news." Then "enemy of the people," wrote Sulzberger. "President Trump's escalating attacks on The New York Times have paralleled his broader barrage on American media. He's gone from misrepresenting our business, to assaulting our integrity, to demonizing our journalists with a phrase that’s been used by generations of demagogues. Now the president has escalated his attacks even further, accusing the Times of a crime so grave it is punishable by death.
