The many who worked for Trump during his four cataclysmic years in office are currently struggling to find second acts for their careers, and unfortunately there are only so many pundit spots open at Fox News, Newsmax, and OANN. But none have the infamy of Stephen Miller, the former president’s senior advisor. Widely perceived as a draconian, immigrant-hating white nationalist who, like some monsters, is prone to public embarrassment, he’s been trying to rebrand as just another Republican culture warrior. And when he tried to get the band back together, it only lead to social media-wide mockery.

On Monday, Miller posted a photo of him with his old boss on his poorly followed Twitter account. (Seriously, he has just over 20,000 followers. By contrast, likely doomed Trumpist Matt Gaetz has over one million.) “Just had a terrific meeting with President Trump!” he wrote, though it wasn’t clear what a meeting between two unemployed people with zero power in government was supposed to be about.
Whatever matters they discussed didn’t matter. People just wanted to mock this particular meeting of the minds.
You could have stopped after "ever".

Many singled out Trump’s sad attempt to recreate the Oval Office in a much smaller room in the Florida country club where he now resides.
This is like the home office you find in a $150/night Orlando AirBnB. https://t.co/hyXOn7Op1k

You're a billionaire. You're living in a country club on the beach in Florida. Why would you dress in a suit and pretend that you're President? https://t.co/4vzpmFvDV0

Some even spotted what looked like a clumsily hidden bottle of Coke, even as the GOP has cancelled the soft drink company for coming out against voter suppression laws in Georgia.
Seems like the Coke boycott is going well. pic.twitter.com/F6drJC7YSZ

Some joked about what they might have discussed.
“Remember when we tossed those 8,000 kids across the border last year and sterilized the women? Man…good memories right, boss? I miss it.. Hey, is that a coke behind the phone?”

Others wondered why they were smiling.

Miller has been busy. On Sunday he launched into a thread about the MLB also coming out against Georgia’s new voter laws, attempting to wax nostalgic for baseball as “the American sport.” People weren’t buying him trying to sound human, even amidst some culture war nonsense.
Stephen Miller’s tweets read like sponsored content but they’re just trying to sell the idea that he’s not a white nationalist but he is. https://t.co/Jrbhkk3CVb

Some mocked his attempt at moving prose.

Others said they don’t mind him nor others like him from skipping MLB games.
Absolutely devastated at the thought of attending a baseball game without people like Stephen Miller and Mike Huckabee in the stands

And others reminded us that very few people are seeing Miller’s tweets that aren’t ratioed.
