Nikki Fiske, a 72-year-old teacher in the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District, has been put on “home assignment” by her school district because she spoke to the press about White House aide Stephen Miller’s odd childhood habits, according to a Thursday Los Angeles Times report.
The district is mulling punishment due to concern “about her release of student information, including allegations that the release may not have complied with applicable laws and district policies,” district spokeswoman Gail Pinsker told the LA Times.
In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter earlier this week, Fiske shared some colorful memories from Miller’s elementary school days.
“Do you remember that character in Peanuts, the one called Pig Pen, with the dust cloud and crumbs flying all around him? That was Stephen Miller at 8,” she said. “He was a strange dude. 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.”
“He was a loner and isolated and off by himself all the time,” she added.
