Oh the irony

Stephen Miller used to heap disdain on elites in 'glass-windowed condominiums.' Now he lives in one.

Stephen Miller has become his own worst enemy.

President Trump's chief policy adviser is one of his longest-standing confidantes, serving as Trump's "warm-up act" at rallies and pushing for anti-immigrant and swamp-draining policies on the 2016 campaign trail, The New York Times writes. But in an attempt to slam Washington's elite as "glass-windowed condominium" dwellers at a campaign rally right before the presidential election, Miller seemed to predict his own future.

Miller may have claimed Trump would rid the White House of career politicians, but he failed to note that he is a Washington mainstay himself. Miller has exclusively held political jobs since graduating from college, working on the communications team for Attorney General Jeff Sessions when Sessions was a senator.

In the Trump White House, Miller has crafted official policies and is reportedly one of the few people the president trusts. And as Miller's anti-immigration focus continues to further endear him to Trump in his tumultuous West Wing, it looks like he may have to renew his lease on that D.C. condo.
