If you look at all the nasty and creepy characters in the Trump Cabinet and his advisors, it is hard to pick a worst of the worst. The scale ranges from decent to incompetent to the purely evil and venal.
On a pure policy level, Scott Pruitt and Ryan Zinke lead the charge for their hideous mismanagement of EPA and the Interior. Nasty heiress Betsy DeVos always had her religious and private school agenda lurking close by. Mnuchin was in the pocket of the large investment banks.
But in terms of just nasty pieces of excrement, two stand out on this list, at least to me, Stephen Bannon and Stephen Miller.
The Jewish kid from Santa Monica has been disowned and disavowed by his own uncle for his hatred, hypocrisy and contempt.
A quick look at his recent headlines gives you a reason why.
In September 2017, The New York Times reported that Miller stopped the Trump administration from showing the public an internal study by the Department of Health and Human Services that found that refugees had a net positive effect on government revenues. Miller insisted that only the costs of refugees be publicized, not the revenues refugees bring in. As a White House spokesman, Miller on multiple occasions made false and unsubstantiated claims regarding widespread electoral fraud. Emails leaked in November 2019 showed that Miller had promoted articles from white nationalist publications VDARE and American Renaissance, and had espoused conspiracy theories. Miller is on the Southern Poverty Law Center's list of extremists.
It really doesn't seem like much has changed.
I loathe everything that this man stands for.
