Miller: "this is all I care about-I don't have a family. I don't have anything else-This is my life"

As the meeting ended, Miller held up his hand to make a final comment. “I didn’t mean to come across as harsh,” he said. His voice dropped. “It’s just that this is all I care about. I don’t have a family. I don’t have anything else. This is my life.”

1. Well, unlikely as it is, he has a wife now.

Too much to hope that she will divert him from abusing immigrants.

3. To think there was someone

That found this evil little gollum worthy of marrying. What does that say about her?
And he is certainly an interesting argument in nature vs nurture.

5. Very long article, reciting known history, with flashes of odd personality quirks

Crying, hissy fits ("I won't stand down! I won't stand down! I won't stand down! ).

.... Since Trump could rarely comprehend the full substance of his own Administration’s agenda on immigration, it fell to Miller to define what victory looked like. One of the President’s favorite routines, according to someone close to both of them, is to play the good cop to Miller’s bad cop: “He’ll smile and say, ‘Well, that sounds O.K. to me but, Stephen, I know you’d never go for it.’ ” ....

In late fall, as Trump’s impeachment hearings began, Miller tried to limit his own public exposure. “He was getting a little too much steady attention, so he knew he had to hang back,” a top Administration official told me. Miller has survived the upheavals in Trump’s inner circle by representing himself as a member of the supporting cast. This strategy was reinforced by the demise of Steve Bannon, who, a few months before being fired, in August, 2017, appeared on the cover of Time, next to the headline “The Great Manipulator.” Sessions was forced out in November, 2018, after having recused himself from the Russia probe. Trump continued to mock him, often in front of Miller. According to someone who witnessed the exchanges, Miller never spoke up to defend his mentor. He was “part of the family now,” a White House official told me. ....

The e-mail scandal barely registered at the White House, where Miller faced a greater challenge. At Trump’s behest, Jared Kushner—who was already responsible for negotiating peace in the Middle East, overhauling international trade agreements, and leading the President’s reëlection campaign—has added immigration to his portfolio. “Stephen understands that Kushner is the real power,” a former White House official said. “He would never cross Kushner.” ....

...so far, Miller has coöperated with Kushner, writing the parts of it that address asylum and family detention. “Jared is the most powerful White House adviser, but he’s very busy,” a person who has worked closely with both Miller and Kushner told me. “Miller is focussed on one thing. He and Kushner make situational alliances. They both think the President needs the other, and they each believe in the other’s absolute loyalty to Trump. In all my time around them, I have never heard either one of them say a negative word about the other, and that’s not true of anyone else.” ....

This summer, months before the election, the Supreme Court is expected to rule on whether the Administration can cancel daca. “Everything—everything!—hinges on that decision,” a former senior D.H.S. official told me. If the Supreme Court ends daca, then “Miller will be in ecstasy. He’ll finally have the leverage over the Democratic Congress that he’s been dying to have this entire time. He’ll say, ‘Well, you’re all worried we’re going to deport them. What will you agree to?’ ” The official continued, “It’ll be the summer of a huge campaign, and Miller will be in his glory.”

6. F k this nazi and his sob story.

You are what you are you caused the rift in your family, poor bitch now wants to complain about not having a family They are there but it is you who has driven them away with your white supremacy. So cling to you wife because she has to be one also to marry someone like you, a disgusting POS.

8. Waah.

No one likes him, no one has ever liked him and his dead eyes, his wife only married him because she is dead inside and hopes his access to power will reanimate her, even though her soul is dead and will remain dead.

Everything Trump touches shrivels up and dies.
