  • People focus on Donald Trump because they think he is the bad guy in all of this, but they are wrong. Donald Trump is just a puppet. He doesn't think. he just doesn't know how to do anything because he is just an ordinary man. The big problem is the man behind him: Stephen Miller. Stephen Miller hates HUMANITY. He is a bitter man. He hates people that don't look like him. He is the Mastermind behind all of this. The Media should pay more attention to this guy, and also, dig into his past.

  • Often it is like that with people who don't feel they belong. From a family of Russian immigrants coming to the USA fleeing possible persecution without being able to speak a word of English. He is a Goebbels figure, the demagog in Germany under WW2

  • nobody believes anything these Fakenews spout do they? They're a comedy show complete fiction they can't be taken seriously.

  • Steve Miller needs to stop identifying himself as a Jew. Real Jews don't do or believe in the things he does and believes in. When the SHTF I don't want people to think all Jews are like Kushner,Miller,Epstein and Dershkowitz.Jews voted 87% Democrat and the few that voted for Trump were probably rich enough that they did it for the tax cut.

  • Maybe if MSNBC didn't slander, distort, and outright lie about progressives and their policy proposals, which have widespread popular support, far-Right freakshows like Trump and his gang of Swamp Things wouldn't win elections? But there's the rub: MSNBC is a mouthpiece for the capitalist ruling class and can never support progressive policies in any way, shape or form.

  • My God! What is it going to take for Americans to simply say to their government "You know what? No. I am NOT going to pay for this! As long as the government continues to propagate this Agenda of Evil I am not going to give them one more PENNY of tax money!' Americans need to REFUSE to support – or in any way participate – in government agendas founded upon the instigation of pain/suffering. Americans could choose to cash out paychecks, use either prepaid cards or cash to pay for purchases, stop putting earnings into banks, and instead do tax withholding ourselves. We could then continue to file tax extension request forms, and continue to do so until our government changes it's current immigration policy. Any American who voluntarily continues to pay their taxes, despite being fully aware of the immoral/unconstitutional crimes now being carried out by the current administration, is COMPLICIT in the continuation of this Evil.

  • Miller es el que no se puede asimilar a Los Estados Unidos. No el Latino o Hispano. Stephen Miller and those like him are the ones who cannot assimilate to the United States and how it is growing- Not the Latino or Hispanic.

  • RACIST ARE NOW IN CONTROL ON TRUMP POLICIES!! THEY ALREADY MANAGING ALL REFERENT ON EMIGRATION! POLICIES!!—-all are conspiting against me trump !!!!now trump is wit the syndrome on persecution!! all around him are conspirator again him! all are planing to harm him!!! HALLWAY ALL AROUND HIM! ARE CONSPIRING TO HARM HIM!! SO SO CRAZY!

  • I just HAVE to comment on this ,I am so upset and sick of this hateful administration and them attacking these wonderful people who are not hurting this country they are making it better! I know these people I was raised with them in Catalina Island and they hard the hardest working and most family loving people,who don't deserve the way they are being treated!! Pretty soon everyone will see this is affecting them when they can't get fruit in store because the fields are empty of pickers and Noone can get served in their favorite restaurant,or thier beds made at the hotel on vacation.All jobs no American will do ! Americans go on welfare before taking a job that difficult to do, Not Mexicans!! After what happened in El Paso I can't help but have tears in my eyes writing this.,.this is NOT the country I grew up inI don't know how we got here but we have to do something to stop this INSANITY! ITS NOT IMMIGRANT'S THAT IS THE PROBLEM!!

  • TheDesertsweeper says:

    One should never judge a person by how they look. But Miller proves that is not always an easy rule to abide by. Snakes come to mind…slippery ones….

  • Hillary Lavendar says:

    Mr. Miller is one of the most ethically and morally corrupt people I have ever seen. His eyes are dead. He just needs to go away. In the future we will find he has a dungeon in his basement, or is a infamous serial killer, or something.

  • Woman of Substance says:

    I commented a couple weeks ago that I wondered how long it would be before Miller was revealed as the power behind the throne. Wish I had been wrong. Miller is such a vile, slimy, sleazebag. Evil.

  • You don't get it. We can't take all these people. Illegals are breaking the laws and draining our resources, taking our jobs and adding to the homeless population. Bringing dangerous criminals and deseases can't continue. The president is supposed to protect our country! He is doing just that. America First. 🇺🇸🗽🇺🇸

  • The mouse in the House Stephanie ruhle. The queen of hearsay innuendo conjecture.. and the Sheep just nod their heads.

  • Miller is the prime example of a school shooter who just so happened to be the bully so he never had to shoot people. then he grows up to carry out all his pain and anguish towards darker skinned people.

  • When you listed Miller's titles, you forgot Sadistic, Psychopathic Child Abuser,. Have you noticed how often his "solutions" involve harming children? I don't think that is an accident, I think he LIKES harming children, someone should check on the children he has been in contact with over the years. After all, He WAS Roy Moore's advisor for years,

  • Richie Tattersall says:

    The United States Supreme Court has ALREADY denied both the Federal and State Governments the right or authority to deny them FREE access to public schools from Kindergarten thru 12th grade.
    Phyler v Doe 1982 Google it.

  • Jeffery Epstein died of natural causes. Its Hillary's turn. Borders are racist. Not funding Medicare for illegal immigrants is racist. Rusher Rusher Rusher….. MSNBC is tripe.

  • This had always been my view on immigration reform and Kim Iversen put out a great video: https://youtu.be/z4t_TTyfLiU Please Share! 😊

  • Gwendolyn Paradise says:

    He's a mean man and unhappy with his life👀👀🤚🏿💩💩💩☠☠☠🐺👶👶🤡🤡🐲🐲🐲

  • Stephen Miller will eventually get what he deserves. Let the punishment fit the crime. Does Florida still have "Old Sparky" in use?

  • Its simple ,keep immigrants kids out of school and in the shadows without green cards are any way to become citizens and they don't become Democratic voters. We see you.

  • Steve Miller is the Joseph Goebbels of our dear leader Donald Trump. If you don't know who was Joseph Goebbels was well you have embraced the Trump's evil darkness and are a Trump supporter.

  • Miller is the power behind the throne. He is Himmler, Goebbels and Goring rolled into one. When this dumpster fire Presidency finally goes out he must face the consequences of his actions. Shame on those who voted for Trump. Shame. History will remember you.
    Goebbels

  • So basically, he's unelected president miller –and drumpf is his dumb puppet, mouthing the words miller gives him to spew. amiright? It's so obvious. I originally thought he was Goebbels to drumpf's hitler….now I'm beginning to think it's the other way around. this unelected pos who's only slightly better educated (but just as vicious) as drumpf–has no place in our government, but is maneuvering behind the scenes to get drumpf to hang himself with his off-the-wall rhetoric so he can – take over? watch drumpf implode and miller have placed himself to step in as 'saviour'. I truly think he's setting drumpf up and using him.

  • Rory Schweinfurter says:

    The only thing Herr Stephan Mueller is missing is a leather leather trench coat and slouch hat and maybe a monocle from being a stereotype Gestapo agent

  • Good Golly Miss Polly says:

    If he's so smart, why do I turn him off for lack of anything to say which holds my attention. He speaks. I'm irritated. Click.

  • #Incelmiller needs to get laid as soon as possible. #stephenINCELmiller should be the bachelor in the next seasons show.

  • Miller is a weird looking creep who worships Trump and would follow him anywhere. Hopefully soon he will be following him to jail, he is like Goerbals during WW2 with his propaganda, who would do anything for Hitler, and who killed his own children and himself in the Berlin Bunker alongside Hitler. This guy will fall on the same sword as Trump when the law catches up with them both.

  • Trevor McKenna-Williams says:

    Stephen is that most despicable of far-right anti-immigration creeps a child of an immigrant. His mothers family are Russian Ashkanazi Jews who came to America to escape pogroms in there own country and unlike the America he would like to create they where welcomed and allowed to settle. And the creep has the audacity to try and deny chance to others.

  • Nathaniel Anderson says:

    The only thing wrong with our school system, is that it needs to start out every day, with running a mile. And walking half a mile after lunch. Then our children need to be taught real history, real law, investment, business, and the basics.

  • Lucky Situmeang says:

    Follow Miller to the end of the world and scream at his ear for destroying family…. tell Miller's children and families, who has been destroying family and separating children from their parents.

  • Lucky Situmeang says:

    Stephen Miller doesn't deserve a minute of comfort in his life. I swear in the name of God, I curse him and his entire family members.. They all gonna pay for what Stephen Miller does.. God can take my life in exchange..

  • When is "THE LORD GOD DER FUHRER THE BABY TRUMP BLIMP, administration going to require immigrants to wear a yellow Star Of David like the NAZIS did, in DENMARK after the NAZIS invaded Denmark most of the Danes started wearing a Star of David no matter what their religion was

  • MeanGeneSanDiego says:

    Sorry, illegal immigrants should not get any assistance, let private organizations subsidize them. Do you know that a Native-born American gets second pick for benefits over "refugees"? B.S.!

  • ipressedabutton says:

    this is weak programming, listening to RHULE run her mouth . unfortunately the other programming on youtube is worse. so i guess this passes as WHITE-NOISE. i'll pretend i'm at the airport waiting for my next flight out of here.

  • Kein Islam Kein Problem says:

    third reich 2.0 incoming…its really interesting. we germans always get asked by foreigners why we let this happen with hitler…now we see the same in america and nobody is doing anything against it. surprise.

  • Jerry Sedlacek says:

    Putting Stephen Miller in charge of immigration is akin to putting Josef Mengele in charge of a children's hospital

  • Miller's not running trump. They're both Confederates, and they're practicing euginics in our face. It don't matter if u don't claim it. The behavior says U are!

  • ask someone in the UK, to describe Americans, the answers would be fat, stupid, and racist,not always in that order. this has been the case for some time and is now getting worse. after voting in don the con the stupid became more prevalent.

  • Richard Winter says:

    SOLUTION: Come legally! Honestly… because while we debate about this and do not enforce the immigration laws that are on the books right now and have been before this current administration, those who ARE WAITING and trying to come legally are the ones who we as Americans are really turning our backs on.
