Trump Adviser Stephen Miller Heckled Outside Sushi Restaurant

Yet another member of the Trump administration has been harassed by a restaurant worker: Adviser to the president Stephen Miller, and architect of the zero-tolerance immigration policy.

Miller had ordered about $80 worth of takeout sushi from a Washington, D.C., restaurant, when a bartender at the unamed establishment followed him into the street, The Washington Post reports. 

The bartender then shouted, "Stephen!" and proceeded to raise both of his middle fingers and curse at Miller, sources told the newspaper.

Miller later told his White House colleagues that he threw out the sushi because he was so disgusted from the incident.

The Post article also recounts an altercation Kellyanne Conway had in a downtown Washington, D.C. supermarket, where a man said to Conway, "You ought to be ashamed of yourself! Go look in the mirror!"

Conway's response? "Mirrors are in aisle 9 — I’ll go get one now." The president's counsel was apparantly unmoved by the incident, telling colleagues, "What am I gonna do? Fall apart in the canned vegetable aisle?"
