Rep. Brendan Boyle (D-Pa.) is bashing senior Trump adviser Stephen Miller over a resurfaced clip of Miller in high school saying he’s “sick and tired” of picking up trash and wants janitors to “do it for us.”
In the resurfaced video, 16-year-old Miller, who was running for student government at the time, expressed his anger at the administration asking him to clean up trash, arguing janitors aren’t working effectively enough.
“Am I the only one who is sick and tired of being told to pick up my trash, when we have plenty of janitors who are paid to do it for us?” Miller screamed.
Boyle, whose father was an immigrant that worked as a janitor, rebuked Miller’s high school stance on having people clean up after him.
“I’m proud to be the son of a janitor,” the congressman tweeted on Tuesday. “For decades my father worked hard to keep our subways in Philadelphia clean.”
Watch the video below:
I’m proud to be the son of a janitor. For decades my father worked hard to keep our subways in Philadelphia clean. He took pride in his work. I only wish I had half his work ethic. So for this scumbag Stephen Miller to say this just disgusts me. I oppose all he stands for. https://t.co/mgWQJoi7FJ

“He took pride in his work. I only wish I had half his work ethic,” he added, continuing to praise his father’s janitorial career.
Boyle then blasted Miller for being a “scumbag” and denounced all “he stands for.”
“So for this scumbag Stephen Miller to say this just disgusts me,” he proclaimed. “I oppose all he stands for.”
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) recently also hit Miller’s credibility on Monday, calling him a “white nationalist.” The congresswoman further expressed her outrage that Miller still has an influence on policy and political appointments.
Stephen Miller is a white nationalist. The fact that he still has influence on policy and political appointments is an outrage. https://t.co/7NyMDgojd7

Asked on Wednesday about Miller’s influence on White House immigration policy, President Donald Trump defended the adviser as “an excellent guy” and a “wonderful person,” but argued that he personally steers his administration’s policy.
