Stephen Miller 'escorted off CNN set' after heated Jake Tapper interview

Share

The tell-all book, Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House", has prompted a swift backlash from Trump and his White House. "CNN has been extraordinarily biased, extraordinarily unfair to the president and is not giving their viewers honest information".

"Jake Tapper of Fake News CNN just got destroyed in his interview with Stephen Miller of the Trump Administration", the President tweeted.

The interview became increasingly hostile as Mr Miller opted to attack CNN instead of answering questions about Mr Trump's fitness to be president.

Miller got a lot of attention over the weekend when he flew off the handle during his interview with Jake Tapper.

Despite having "no knowledge" of the meeting, Miller said he was certain all of the allegations in Wolff's book are "a pure work of fiction" and "nothing but a pile of trash through and through". Bannon was chief executive of Trump's campaign and chief strategist at the White House, before he left August 18, 2017.

Tapper interrupted Miller there, saying, "I'm sure he's watching and he's happy that you said that".

Enter Tucker Carlson, who frequently seems to be devoid of any logic, and opened by asking Miller if he thought he would have been escorted off CNN property if he had been "a member of MS-13 here illegally", referencing the criminal gang. At the same time, Tapper was trying to ask Miller about Bannon's role in the travel ban executive order, of which Miller was a chief architect, and other policy issues taken on by the White House.

While Trump had a decidedly different view of the segment, many Twitter users applauded Tapper's decision to pull the plug on Miller.
