Other Twitter users seemed shocked that the uncharismatic Miller — a White House senior adviser responsible for many of President Donald Trump’s most odious policies — had found a girlfriend.

Someone is willingly dating Stephen Miller? Boggles the mind. Triggers the gag reflex. Possibly also hails Satan.

I can’t even fathom someone actually dating the man. Racism and fascism in one really creepy package, who in their right mind would pick that off the grocery store shelf? The carton of very dangerously outdated milk would be more of a charmer.

Don’t pity Katie Waldman for dating Stephen Miller. Read the article, she was fierce spox for DHS defending zero tolerance Family Separation. Sounds like a match made in Ideological Hate-filled Racist hell. 🤮#MorningJoe #DeadlineWH https://t.co/VQvqvVMzRY
