As if the impeachment inquiry in Congress wasn’t enough, now one of Donald Trump’s top advisers has been unmasked as unapologetic racist.

Stephen Miller, the architect of Trump’s hardcore immigration policies, has been identified as an unquestioned racist.

Sadly, outrageously, when Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn) brought Miller’s racism to light, her political adversaries denounced her and labeled her anti-Semitic because Miller is Jewish.

Fortunately, Omar was vindicated by the Southern Poverty Law Center release of emails from Miller, proving his deep, sickening racism.

The surfacing of Miller’s now-public racism must force an entire relook at all of Trump’s harsh immigration policies.

But these disclosures compel more than that.

Even as Trump has said and done things that could easily found to be racist, he and his defenders all along have denied that he has ever been personally a racist.

Well, the surfacing of Miller’s emails now offers Trump a chance to put up or shut up.

If Trump truly is not a racist, then he will have no problem denouncing Miller in the harshest possible terms and oust him.

If Trump doesn’t do so, there certainly would be no reason not to see him as racist.
