Stephen Miller, the senior adviser to President Donald Trump, is getting roasted online after launching an Instagram account amidst the chaotic events of the last week.

Despite the pro-Trump insurrection at the Capitol, which resulted in the deaths of five people, Miller has remained entirely silent. Miller is one of the few long-time members of the Trump administration that has seemingly avoided the wrath of the president and remained in his good graces.

But while everyone in the country was focused on the potential for further violence, Miller was busy setting up his verified account.

Miller, who has only managed to garner around 395 followers so far, has posted a single photograph alongside his wife and infant child. The account has almost certainly been bombarded by negative remarks, as the comments on the post have been limited.

One of the three approved comments on the photo is a series of heart emojis from Trump’s for White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

While Miller has seemingly done a good job in keeping his opponents off his feed, users on Twitter are dunking on the controversial adviser.

One Twitter user noted the interesting timing of the account’s creation while referring to Miller as a “naked mole rat.”

Others, given Miller’s controversial history, referred to Miller as a “real life villain.”

“No one has ever looked more like a real like villain than Stephen Miller

Miller sparked a wave of criticism in late 2019 after an email he wrote was uncovered that showed him linking to a white nationalist website. The political adviser’s views on immigration and a range of other policies have led to widespread pushback from progressives.
