The Hollywood Reporter published a hit piece Wednesday on White House Policy Adviser Stephen Miller that was authored by his third-grade teacher.

The teacher, Nikki Fiske, mocks Miller’s “strange” childhood habits and says she was “concerned” about him as a child.

“Do you remember that character in Peanuts, the one called Pig Pen, with the dust cloud and crumbs flying all around him?” Fiske asks. “That was Stephen Miller at 8.”

She continues, “I remember he would take a bottle of glue — we didn’t have glue sticks in those days — and he would pour the glue on his arm, let it dry, peel it off and then eat it.”

Fiske adds that Miller was a “loner” with bad handwriting and that she wrote down her “concerns” about Miller in an end-of-year report, horrifying his parents.

“When the school principal had a conference with Stephen’s parents, the parents were horrified. So the principal took some white-out and blanked out all my comments. I wish I could remember what I wrote, but this was 25 years ago,” she recalls. (RELATED: Protesters Gather Outside White House Adviser Stephen Miller’s Apartment, Pass Out ‘Wanted’ Flyers)
