Neither the horrific racism nor the hair is a good look.
In an appearance on CBS’ Face the Nation on Sunday, White House aide Stephen Miller tried out a new look while discussing his racist immigration policies.
Miller, 33, has a prominent receding hairline; perhaps in an effort to emulate his boss, Miller made an attempt to cover his baldness. It did not go particularly well.

Whatever is atop his head appears to be an entirely different color than his natural hair, and looks to be sprayed on, or a least made of a material other than human hair.

Of course, Twitter went nuts trying to figure out what was going on atop Miller’s head.
"Steven Miller ain't going bald, he deported his hair for being brown."

I can’t decide if the person who let Steven Miller on TV with the worst spray hair I’ve ever seen is a hero or a coward but either way I’m grateful pic.twitter.com/32RDeiuCMG

Trump advisor Steven Miller went on TV with a bad spray-on hair job this morning…
You might say he made a huge mistake. pic.twitter.com/7UatjVRZkK

Miller was on Face the Nation to talk about the Affordable Care Act, saying the law was “always unconstitutional” and that President Donald Trump wanted to work across the aisle for a solution that would bring down premiums and allow for protections for pre-existing conditions. He then pivoted to immigration policies. He blamed “illegal immigration” and “left-wing activist judicial rulings” for the death of 7-year-old Jakelin Caal Maquín.
Miller advocated for President Donald Trump shutting down the government over funding for the border wall.
Although Miller’s look was unfortunate, it did get people paying attention to Miller’s policies, too.
The only effective border wall would be one that had Stephen Miller on the other side of it. https://t.co/LvJCkrZNt1

To be fair, I don't just mock Stephen Miller's ghastly appearance. I make sure to mock his middling intellect, expansive hatred and abhorrent policy stances too!
— Randi Mayem Singer (@rmayemsinger) December 16, 2018
Instead of mocking Stephen Miller's spray-on hair, we should be working to stop his vile policies.
Whoa. Just saw the hair. We can multitask.

WH not backing down on shutdown threats over Trump’s demands for $5 billion for border wall. “If it comes to it, absolutely,” Stephen Miller says on CBS when asked if Trump would shut down government if his demands aren’t met
— Manu Raju (@mkraju) December 16, 2018
Miller is basically saying "fund the wall or we will keep killing children" https://t.co/sNA2xIvJRl
