Congratulations to Katie Waldman, Vice President Pence’s new press secretary. But why the f*** is it a big deal that she’s dating Stephen Miller?
Pence has hired Katie Waldman, 27, to be his new press secretary, per NBC. She was a spokesperson for DHS under Nielsen, then comms director for Sen McSally. Also worth noting: Waldman is dating Stephen Miller https://t.co/ESjkw3fbyC

How many therapists in DC are going to hear the line, “Even Stephen Miller!” in the next week?

The surprise that someone is dating Stephen Miller is fascinating. It's almost as if people haven't seen historical pics of women at lynching, cross-burnings, Nazi rallies, KKK parades, etc. Bigotry isn't limited to men, folks.

Here’s an idea: Journos should be forced to disclose their significant other so readers can determine if there are any potential conflicts of interest. Sounds fair, right?
