She’s developed a YouTube series, naturally.
When Americans show up at the polls in November, they won’t just be picking a new president — they’ll also be selecting a new First Family. The prospective First Daughters and Sons from both major party’s presumptive nominees have served as dutiful campaign surrogates, joining their parents on the campaign trail and smiling in the background.
But Joanna Castle Miller has taken a decidedly different approach to the role. Castle Miller, 32, is a NYU-educated Los Angeles comedy writer. She’s a fast-talking liberal with a sarcastic wit. Her father, Darrell Castle, is not any of those things.
Castle, 67, is the 2016 presidential nominee for the Constitution Party, a far-right faction that has been accused of promoting theocracy and that lists opposition to abortion and gay marriage as among its “seven principles.” The Constitution Party also holds that just about every kind of taxation constitutes theft. In a world where many young people, including self-identified conservatives, consider these policy battles settled affairs, the Constitution Party is committed to continuing the fight like it was 1999.
