Stephen Miller has a girlfriend—and people are stunned

In a tweet Thursday about some standard White House personnel moves—Mike Pence getting a new spokesperson after his left to join President Donald TrumpWashington Post reporter Nick Miroff dropped a tidbit that left the internet unsettled.

Pence’s new press secretary Katie Waldman, who served under former Department of Homeland Security head Kirstjen Nielsen, is dating Trump advisor Stephen Miller.

While it’s not uncommon for people in similar fields to date, Miller is reviled by those on the left for his views on immigration and is considered the Trump administration’s biggest hardliner and resident xenophobe.

He’s insisted the Statue of Liberty doesn’t welcome immigrants, thrown a tantrum on national television, been accused of out-and-out white nationalism, and gone on the Sunday shows with a horrific hair situation.

But now he has a girlfriend, and it’s making people upset.

Interestingly, Waldman served under Nielsen, who Miller forced out for being weak on immigration.

Maybe they’re made for each other?
