Stephen Miller owns stock in exactly one company, and that company is Disney
When you work in the White House, you have to periodically file financial disclosure forms so that the public knows you don’t have any conflicts of interest while going about your work of serving the American people. Or at least, that’s how it’s supposed to work when the administration occupying the White House isn’t blatantly corrupt, which the current one so very obviously is.
Anyways, White House employees are still making their financial disclosure forms available for public viewing, and so I, a member of the public, decided to look at Stephen Miller’s, which was recently published by Russ Kick of AltGov 2.
Stephen Miller, a top candidate for the most odious and racist member of an extremely odious and racist administration, has two bank accounts and an investment portfolio that consists of some cash, ownership in one bond, and $1,0001 to $15,000 worth of stock in The Walt Disney Company.
In addition to being a white supremacist who probably has no friends, there’s something about Miller that is extremely childish, as if he’s a super-racist baby who takes glee in doing things he knows will make people suffer, simply because of the power he feels from knowing he did a thing. As such, it feels telling that he has a small financial stake in the commercial legacy of Walt Disney, a crypto-fascist who was friendly with Nazi propagandist Leni Riefenstahl and whose original idea for Disney World’s EPCOT park was to build a city that, as TruthOut once put it, would be “free from unions, privacy, democracy, and social security.”
Of course, under the watch of Miller’s employer, Disney has successfully furthered its push to seemingly have a monopoly over all forms of entertainment, but given how much Donald Trump loves the unfettered spread of big business, that was probably going to happen regardless of whether Miller held Disney stock. But still
