Islamophobia

Trump’s “Speech on Islam” Was Written by the Slenderman

Here's a really bad idea.

Trump is scheduled to deliver a "speech on Islam" in Saudi Arabia during his first overseas trip. That seemed like a horrible idea even before learning that the speech is being written by intense Islamophobe and Slenderman cosplayer Stephen Miller.

Miller played a key rule creating the administration's initial travel ban on citizens from seven majority-Muslim countries, which was denounced by critics as a fulfillment of Trump's promise for a "Muslim ban."

Miller, who helped write Trump's GOP convention and inaugural addresses, is also writing a second speech in Israel that will be given at the ancient fortress of Masada, according to CNN.

Trump's speech is supposedly going to focus on "radical ideologies" so I suppose it's appropriate that a radical ideologue like Stephen Miller is writing it.

I'm being facetious, of course. This speech could literally get people killed.

Even though he closely resembles Lurch, Miller is actually younger than I am; barely removed from the college campus where he made a name for himself organizing "Islamofascism" rallies. Miller and white supremacist Richard Spencer became best buds while they attended Duke University.

Trump delivering a "speech on Islam" would be a bad idea even if a Muslim wrote it. This is obviously much worse.

    I’m sure Donald Trump and Stephen Miller have valuable insights on Islam which the lifelong Muslims who live in a Muslim country will enjoy receiving and find intriguing.

    I’m sure a visit to the States from Hassan Rouhani to speak about Christianity would be welcomed by evangelical Christians from coast to coast.

    Hmmm…Miller and H.A. Goodman do resemble each other…and both are smug assholes…separated at birth, maybe?

      I’d imagine both were birthed by a lab monkey researchers were using to determine the effects of excessive meth use.

    I suspect we won’t be seeing any pics of trump walking hand-in-hand with a Saudi prince being all bromancey and such.

      Well, we know how handsy Trump likes to be. Best to keep him at arm’s length.

    A really bad idea is getting into a windowless van with a stranger. A really bad idea is making toast in the bathtub. A really bad idea is almost anything that follows, “Hold my beer and watch this!”

    Donald Trump giving a speech on Islam—written by Stephen Miller, no less—in Saudi Arabia is not a really bad idea.

    It’s a catastrophically bad idea.

    This will not end well.

    The half mast eyes, outrageously tall forehead, seething hatred for life…holy shit has this guy ever gotten laid?

      Like most of the alt-righters, I would say probably not. That is where a lot of their anger comes from, I suspect.

        Dude must be backed up so badly it’s probably about to spurt out of his ears…

    Jeebus. If you look up “flat affect” in a manual of psychology I expect you’ll find this guy’s photo.

    • ninjaf

      Had to look that up to see what it is. And yep, that about sums it up.

    Talk about creepy pasta.
