This afternoon, during the press briefing, White House Advisor and Jeff Sessions’ minion Stephen Miller came out to announce our nation’s new immigration policy, which is basically: We will only let skilled white people who speak English into America from now on. It did not go over well. In fact, CNN White House Correspondent Jim Acosta took dramatic issue with Stephen Miller in a bizarre back-and-forth in which Acosta reminded Miller of the poem on the Statue of Liberty (“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free”) and Miller called Acosta “cosmopolitan” and mansplained that the poem wasn’t originally part of the Statue of Liberty:

“I don’t want to get off into a whole thing about history here, but the Statue of Liberty is a symbol of liberty lighting the world, it’s a symbol of liberty lighting the world. The poem you are referring to, which was added later, is not part of the original Statue of Liberty.”

Stephen Miller can go fuck himself. It’s a noteworthy exchange, however, if only because someone in the press tried to stand up to the White House. Also, if you didn’t hate Stephen Miller before, try watching this for 30 seconds without falling into a deep state of despair and rage.

Twitter had plenty of reactions, both to Stephen Miller and the new immigration policy. For instance, here’s the Anne Frank House statement on Miller’s comments re: The Statute of Liberty poem.

That’s a much better way of telling Stephen Miller to go fuck himself.

Here’s some more colorful insults from the Twitter brigade.

Of course, not everyone was appalled:

The latest Quinnipiac poll has Trump’s approval rating at 33 percent and falling. Hopefully, it will continue to fall downward after this repugnant policy.
