Comedian Pauly Shore has parodied Trump aide Stephen Miller's recent argument with CNN's Jim Acosta over the meaning of the Statue of Liberty in a hilarious new sketch.

Miller was in the news this week following a heated exchange with Acosta, who asked him to defend a strict new immigration proposal in light of the poem by Emma Lazarus inscribed on the Statue of Liberty.

He then segues through a reference to the original Planet of the Apes movie - with its ruined Statue of Liberty - and ends with a clip of the statue screaming from Home Alone 2.

Pauly Shore stepped into the role of White House senior policy advisor Stephen Miller for a recent amusing or Die short poking fun at the recent heated exchange between Miller and CNN's Jim Acosta following a press briefing discussing immigration.

CNN's Jim Acosta noted the statue's "give me your exhausted, your poor, your huddled masses" line from the "The New Colussus" poem engraved in Lady Liberty's pedestal. To which Miller later replied, "The [Emma Lazarus] poem that you're referring to was added later".

"Wait, though. Just because it wasn't part of the original does not mean it is worthless", Oliver said Sunday night. "That's why they added the fucking Rock".

Vanity Fair said Oliver expects Miller to be a colorful communications director, should he get the job.

Or, to be more accurate, he's really, really anti-Miller. Image via YouTube.comIt might be Stephen Miller, the 31-year-old White House "policy adviser and vitamin D deficient Minion" in John Oliver's words.

He showed a video of Miller campaigning for student government in which he railed against having to pick up his own litter when the school pays good money for janitors. "Look at me directly in my forehead and tell me I'm not lying", Shore said.

"Wow. He is truly one of the most revolting humans - parenthesis, Minions - I have ever seen", Oliver concluded.
