Trump’s Key Aide Stephen Miller Follows David Duke On Twitter, And “Liked” Duke’s Pizzagate Tweet

Also liked a Duke “Pizzagate” tweet made just yesterday - he’s a total whackjob.

Stephen Miller joined Trump’s campaign in January 2016, but did not gain worldwide attention until last week, as it became clear that this super-conservative 31 year old misanthrope, now a “senior advisor” to Trump, is drafting executive orders like the Muslim Ban. And he appeared on the Sunday talk shows this past weekend — pushing the ridiculous lie that millions of immigrants illegally voted in the election — earning a Trump tweet for a “great job.”

Miller has a little-noticed Twitter account, albeit a rather inactive one. In May 2016, Miller opened @StephenMillerAL (AL for Alabama — Miller worked for Alabama’s Sen. Jeff Sessions, our now Attorney General, from 2009-16. No doubt Miller helped engineer the Trump-Sessions lovefest.)

Until this past weekend Miller had made only 14 tweets, the last one being a July 31 tweet lampooning Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Miller on Trudeau

The tweet disappeared on Monday when Trudeau visited the United States, so although Miller hasn’t tweeted in over six months, he hasn’t abandoned the account.

In late December (verified via a Google cache), Miller only had 34 followers on Twitter. As of February 15, he’s gone up to 213 followers, as some people stumble across his account. In the past few days, he’s deleted 4 of his original 14 tweets (including the Trudeau tweet), and stopped following 20 accounts (going from 78 to 58).

Miller Twitter changes

If you’re going to clean up some of your problematic follows, one would think you’d stop following this guy:

Trump whisperer Stephen Miller follows David Duke

Yes, Trump aide Stephen Miller follows white supremacist David Duke. And still follows him. Indeed, in the last day he just liked a David Duke tweet referencing the Pizzagate whackjob theory about a Clinton-linked child-sex trafficking ring.

Miller likes pizzagate.

Of course Miller also still follows nuts like @RealJamesWoods and @ScottBaio — it looks like he unfollowed unhinged accounts like “DEPLORABLE DANI” (@nimblenavgater), and @nikshmatko, a Ukrainian Trump fanatic who has made marble busts of Trump and French nationalist Marine LePen.

Unlike David Duke, this guy is a true artist!

Recent reporting on Miller’s past makes it clear that he grew up to hold anti-immigrant nationalist views. Openly following David Duke on twitter (and Duke professes to liking Miller) only makes it even more clear that Miller holds anti-immigrant/white nationalist views, despite being raised Jewish himself.

And this is one of the main people influencing Trump. This is insane.

ETA 9:50am PST 2/15/17: Within minutes of this post going live, Miller just tweeted for the first time since July, a retweet of a conservative cartoonist that he follows:

Miller also “liked” a tweet by Hunter Wallace (@occdissent), who runs the white supremacist hate site Occidental Dissent.

The Trump administration has responded; they say this account is not really Stephen Miller’s.

However, some points:

1) Given how much lying comes out of the Trump administration, I think a little skepticism about their denial is warranted.

2) This denial is very easy to make, since the account wasn’t used very much or verified, and there’s no clear way to tie it to Miller definitively.

3) The account was created 9 months ago, long before Miller was well known, and has none of the usual signs of a parody account.

UPDATE at 2/15/17 5:57:13 pm by Charles Johnson

Whoever’s running this Twitter account deleted a retweet posted today of an ugly Ben Garrison cartoon, so the most recent tweet now showing is from July 2016. Here’s what it looked like earlier today:

And here’s what it looks like now:
