Many tweets took aim at Miller’s controversial stances regarding topics such as immigration.

“BREAKING: Stephen Miller tests negative for morals, values, ethics and a soul. Tests positive for Covid-19,” @BrianSimsPA said.

Comparisons of Miller to a whole host of non-human entities were also common across social media.

“BREAKING: Stephen Miller has tested positive for the coronavirus,” @TravisAllen02 said. “This is the first known case of human to demon transmission.”

Others users noted that Miller’s wife Katie had only just hours prior mocked Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) for raising safety concerns about the upcoming vice presidential debate.

“Please send prayers to Stephen Miller,” @pixelatedboat added. “You may not agree with his politics, but the man has a family (thousands of parasitic worms that feed off his bile-like substance he excretes from his armpits.”

Miller is just one of a growing number of people connected to Trump, who also has COVID-19, to test positive for the virus.
