“He was a strange dude,” says Franklin elementary teacher Nikki Fiske about her former student Stephen Miller – the Trump advisor credited as the architect of the Muslim ban, and the policy of separating families at the border.
Even as far back as third grade he was a creepy ‘loner,’ she said, who had a messy desk and was would often isolate himself from classmates.
“Do you remember that character in Peanuts, the one called Pig Pen, with the dust cloud and crumbs flying all around him? That was Stephen Miller at eight,” she said.
Also? He apparently ate a lot of glue.
“I remember he would take a bottle of glue — we didn’t have glue sticks in those days — and he would pour the glue on his arm, let it dry, peel it off and then eat it,” she said.
Miss Fiske isn’t the only one to recall his bizarro glue-eating habit.
In June, former classmate John Muller wrote a tell-all for Politico about the boy who grew up to write Trump’s inauguration speech.
Muller sat next to him, but said the pair were never friends. He, like Fiske, said Miller was difficult to get through to, and even claimed the eight-year-old had divided their table in half to establish a clear boundary.
‘He especially was obsessed with tape and glue,’ Muller wrote.
‘Along the midpoint of our desk, Stephen laid down a piece of white masking tape, explaining that it marked the boundary of our sides and that I was not to cross it.’
The former Harvard lecturer said he found it intriguing that for a child so determined to keep others out of his space, he took no care to maintain that space, and recollected Miller’s desk being ‘sticky and peeling’ with pencils and bits of paper everywhere.
Like Fiske, Muller also noticed Miller’s fascination with glue.
‘When Stephen wasn’t picking at the tape [dividing the desk], he was playing with glue,’ he said.
‘He liked to pour it into his hands, forming grime-tinted glaciers in the valleys of his palms. Glue thusly in hand, he deployed his deepest powers of concentration to watch these pools harden.’

And here he is throwing a White Power sign from the White House podium, just in case you’ve forgotten what a racist POS he is…
