Attacks on White House policy adviser Stephen Miller by the left-wing media are nothing new. But the media has reached a new low by attacking White House policy adviser Stephen Miller for the having the gall to have been a little bit quirky — as a third grader.
I think everyone will admit to being somewhat weird or silly in third grade, but I think everyone will admit it usually isn’t relative or indicative of how they’ll behave the remainder of their lives.
Unfortunately, Miller had a vindictive teacher who decided that her memories of an 8-year-old who went on to work in the Trump administration would be wonderful fodder for a leftist media outlet.
So Miller’s third grade teacher, Nikki Fiske, made fun of his childhood habits in a hit-piece published by The Hollywood Reporter in a four-paragraph story by
“Do you remember that character in ‘Peanuts,’ the one called Pig Pen with the dust cloud and crumbs flying all around him? That was Stephen Miller at 8,” Fiske said.
“I was always trying to get him to clean up his desk — he always had stuff mashed up in there,” she added.
It sounds like Miller was the average third-grader with a cluttered desk. Can’t believe there’s any news angle to the revelation that children in the third grade, especially boys, aren’t known to be particularly neat.
But it also begs the question: If a teacher poked fun at the cleanliness of a child today, would they not be criticized for “passing judgment” on a child, or perhaps his home life?
Fiske went on to say she was “concerned” about Miller, but not because he was doing poorly in school.
“He was a loner and isolated and off by himself all the time,” the teacher said.

In other words, he was shy and introverted? News flash — teachers are bound to run into a few shy and introverted kids every year.
I’m sure there are more than a few teachers who would have been more than happy to help a young boy come out of his shell instead of making comparisons to cartoon characters.
This teacher claims she took her concerns to Miller’s parents and they “were horrified.”
I doubt the parents were horrified to find out the shocking revelation that their 8-year-old boy was messy and shy.
It’s absurd that this story was even given the time of day, and it appears with no other context of the success Miller has gone on to achieve in his professional career.
So what’s the point of this story and the teacher’s comments other than to try and portray Miller in a negative light?
I guess the left is experimenting with new strategies to attack Miller, who is a lightning rod for criticism for his role in shaping the administration’s policy on such matters as the detainment of parents and children who try to enter the country illegally.
In June, Hollywood leftist Peter Fonda tried to attack Miller in one of his unhinged Twitter rants by comparing Miller to Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi propagandist.
Don’t let the pedophile Stephen Goebbels Miller near those girls separated from their parents. Trump, Sessions, Nielsen, WHERE ARE THE GIRLS? Their health and safety are in your hands and WE ARE ALL WATCHING

Fonda’s attack was particularly disgusting because Miller has a Jewish background. Attacking a third grader is comparably disgusting.
If you thought the left was ridiculous for trying to accuse Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of behavior that allegedly happened in high school, let this serve notice that how a conservative behaved in third grade is now fair game for liberals.
