Angry lefties are taking to social media to express their glee over the news that Stephen Miller, a senior aide to President Trump widely seen as the architect of his immigration policy (known to liberals as "kids in cages"), has become the latest White House staffer to test positive with COVID-19.

By our count, that makes him the 33rd person infected in the White House outbreak by our count, which includes 11 staffers who tested positive after the debate in Cleveland. According to NBC News, the number stands at 23.

The applause from the left rolled in on Twitter.

Roxane Gay cheered news of Miller's infection, claiming it as another example of the power of "Libra Season".

Miller has released a statement to the press: "I have been working remotely and self-isolating, testing negative every day through yesterday. Today, I tested positive for COVID-19 and am in quarantine." His plans regarding the length of his quarantine aren't clear. According to the New York Daily News, it was "not immediately clear" whether Miller attended the Sept. 26 ceremony announcing Judge Amy Coney Barrett's nomination.

Miller has been working from home since Friday.

It also appears that the military aide who tested positive - reported earlier today - is among those responsible for carrying the "football" that contains launch codes for nuclear weapons has also tested positive, a person familiar with the matter said.
