The White House senior adviser Stephen Miller once threw out $US80 worth of sushi after a bartender at the restaurant he ordered from flipped him off as he walked away, The Washington Post reported Monday.
The bartender from the restaurant, near Miller’s apartment, reportedly followed Miller out the door and shouted “Stephen!” The bartender flipped both middle fingers and cursed at Miller, who then threw out the sushi in disgust, Miller later told colleagues, according to The Post.
Earlier this year, a stranger shouted “Better be better!” at Miller while he was walking through Dupont Circle in Washington, DC, The Post reported. His face also appeared on “wanted” posters on lampposts outside his apartment, the report said.
The incidents surrounding Miller, an architect of President Donald Trump’s immigration policies, come as many current and former White House aides and advisers – such as Kellyanne Conway, Steve Bannon, Sean Spicer, and Sarah Huckabee Sanders – have faced scrutiny and criticism in public places both around and outside the nation’s capital over Trump’s policies.
Last month, Sanders was asked to leave a restaurant in Lexington, Virginia, because of her work in the Trump administration. Over the weekend, a woman confronted Bannon in a bookstore in Richmond, Virginia, and called him a “piece of trash,” the Richmond Times-Dispatch reported.
At a DC grocery store last year, a man told Conway that she ought to be ashamed of herself, The Post reported.
And before leaving his post as press secretary, Spicer was at least once the recipient of curse words from people driving by his home, the report said.
