Stephen Miller Couldn't Keep His Eyes Open During a Meeting About School Shootings
President Donald Trump's senior adviser Stephen Miller was widely ridiculed after photos surfaced of him snoozing at a White House meeting on Monday between the president and state governors to discuss school safety in the wake of a shooting that killed 17 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
While Trump was busy making headlines by declaring that he would have run into the school to confront the shooter, photos of Miller—taken by Jim Lo Scalzo of the European Pressphoto Agency, and which show Miller as he yawns, rubs his eyes, and allows his head to fall forward with his eyes closed—quickly spread on social media.

Some observers referenced Miller's notorious stances on race and immigration issues.
Poor Stephen Miller. Ruthlessly turning Trump's racism into national #immigration policy takes its toll. https://t.co/rANZ2ujmXo— David Leopold 🇺🇸 (@David Leopold 🇺🇸)1519676054.0

Weird to finally see a picture of Stephen Miller sleeping, I always pictured him doing it while hanging upside down in a cave.— Gabe Ortíz (@Gabe Ortíz)1519683274.0
