Congressman Brendan Boyle (D-PA): Stephen Miller is a ‘Scumbag’

Donald Trump’s Department of Homeland Security has been rocked by both resignations and firings in the last week. Many pundits believe that hard-line adviser Stephen Miller is establishing a stronger level of control over the president’s immigration policies.

Miller is well known as an strong anti-immigrant voice. The adviser’s views have been criticized by family members via a  Politico op-ed. A video of Miller demeaning janitors while in High School resurfaced on Twitter yesterday. In response to the clip, Pennsylvania congressman, Brendan Boyle (D) referred to Miller as a “scumbag.”

The video was shared on Twitter by Scott Dworkin of the Democratic Coalition. In this video, a high school age Miller says, “I’m sick and tired of being told to pick up my trash, when we have plenty of janitors who are paid to do it for us.”

Boyle shared the tweet and responded:

“I’m proud to be the son of a janitor. For decades my father worked hard to keep our subways in Philadelphia clean. He took pride in his work. I only wish I had half his work ethic. So for this scumbag Stephen Miller to say this just disgusts me. I oppose all he stands for.”

Democratic congresswoman, Ilhan Omar, also took aim at Miller. She tweeted ealier this week, “Stephen Miller is a white nationalist. The fact that he still has influence on policy and political appointments is an outrage.”

This time, President Trump stepped in to defend Miller. He quoted CEO, Jeff Ballabon, “What’s completely unacceptable is for Congesswoman Omar to target Jews, in this case Stephen Miller.”
