Family Says Stephen Miller’s Grandmother Died Of COVID, WH Denies It, Calls Media Inquiry “Disgusting”

Mother Jones reports:

This month, Stephen Miller, the extremist anti-immigrant adviser to President Donald Trump who has promoted white nationalist ideas, lost a relative to the coronavirus pandemic, and his uncle tells Mother Jones that the Trump administration is partly to blame for this death.

In response to a request seeking comment from Miller, a White House spokesperson sent Mother Jones this statement: “This is categorically false, and a disgusting use of so-called journalism when the family deserves privacy to mourn the loss of a loved one. His grandmother did not pass away from COVID. She was diagnosed with COVID in March and passed away in July so that timeline does not add up at all. His grandmother died peacefully in her sleep from old age. I would hope that you would choose not to go down this road.”

Informed that Ruth Glosser’s death certificate cited COVID-19, the White House spokesperson replied, “Again, this is categorically false. She had a mile [sic] case of COVID-19 in March. She was never hospitalized and made a full and quick recovery.”

Oh yes, there’s much more.
