Bret Easton Ellis is finally ready to return to the affluent and detached Los Angeles milieu of his 1985 debut novel Less than Zero, except this time the dead-inside narrator won't have a coke problem—he'll have a racist geopolitics problem! Yes, that's right, Ellis has announced that he finds C+ Santa Monica fascist Stephen Miller "compelling," and that he would like to write a novel about him. Miller, for those somehow unfamiliar with the dead-eyed Trump advisor, is a Los Angeles-born senior policy advisor to the President of the United States who once sort of lost a high school election to the Cobrasnake. Ellis is also known for his aptly titled novel American Psycho and the ensuing Patrick Bateman references made by insufferable dudebros everywhere.

Ellis, who much like Miller has previously chafed at the closed-minded Left Coast liberal elite, made this announcement Wednesday on popular microblogging platform Twitter, where authors typically share news of novels in progress.

The Jim Acosta in question is, of course, the CNN reporter who took on Miller over the meaning of the Statue of Liberty at a White House press briefing Wednesday.
