Young Man on a Power Trip

Interesting and long profile of Stephen Miller in today's Raleigh News&Observer. Miller is Steve Bannon's deputy and sidekick in the Trump White House and is credited as the lead author of Trump's inauguration speech and of the Muslim ban executive order.

The N&O profile focuses on Miller's years in Durham as a student at Duke University.

One meaty quote: “He’s the most sanctimonious student I think I ever encountered,” said John Burness, Duke’s former senior vice president of public affairs and government relations. “He seemed to be absolutely sure of his own views and the correctness of them, and seemed to assume that if you were in disagreement with him, there was something malevolent or stupid about your thinking. Incredibly intolerant.”
