Monday, we’re talking about Stephen Miller, one of President Trump’s most trusted advisers. Before he was whipping up crowds at Trump rallies and chastising the White House press corps, Miller actively aggravated his high school classmates and gleefully provoked liberals at Duke. Basically, he’s a troll, and as political journalist McKay Coppins learned firsthand, an extremely influential and gifted one. Coppins joins us to explore Miller’s background and his influence on American politics.

McKay Coppins is a a staff writer at The Atlantic. His article is called Trump's Right-Hand Troll. Coppins is also the author of The Wilderness, a book about the battle over the future of the Republican Party. [Indie bookstores|Amazon|Audible]
