PPDC board member Ted Vaill writes another provocative piece for the L.A. Progressive....

Stephen Miller got his plug pulled last weekend. Miller is Trumputin’s (as I call him) “senior policy advisor” (even though at age 31, he is hardly “senior”), and he was deputized by his boss to go on CNN host Jake Tapper’s “State of the Union” to trash Michael Wolff’s tell-all book, Fire and Fury, by spewing fire and fury at Tapper.

Miller, who looks like a 50-year-old man trapped in a 31-year-old body, is a severely balding, hooded-lidded, gangly man who reminded me, as he spewed personal insults at Jake Tapper, of Adolf Hitler’s young hitman, Martin Bormann.

Miller, who looks like a 50-year-old man trapped in a 31-year-old body, is a severely balding, hooded-lidded, gangly man who reminded me, as he spewed personal insults at Jake Tapper, of Adolf Hitler’s young hitman, Martin Bormann.

Bormann served a year in prison in the early 1920s for being an accomplice in a murder to a man who later was the commandant of the Auschwitz concentration camp. He joined the Nazi Party in 1927 and rose rapidly in the party, becoming chief of staff to the Deputy Fuhrer, Rudolf Hess, in 1933, at age 33. He became a member of Hitler’s inner circle (much as Miller has become to Trumputin), and accompanied him everywhere (similar to Miller), and became Hitler’s “personal secretary” in 1935. That year, he became the head of the renovations to Hitler’s property at Obersalzberg, the Berghof, and built the Eagle’s Nest, a tea house high above the Berghof (which I have visited), as a gift to Hitler on his 50th birthday in 1939.
