According to a report from Business Insider, White House adviser Stephen Miller acted out in a bizarre manner after his heated interview on CNN, where anchor Jake Tapper cut short his interview after accusing Miller of playing to “one person,” namely President Trump.
According to two sources close to the matter speaking to BI, Miller refuse to leave the CNN studio after his interview was cut short. When the show went to commercial break, Miller “was asked to leave several times.” When he ignored the requests, “security was called and he was escorted out” according to the report.
So far, CNN has declined to comment on the matter.
In his exchange with Tapper, Miller shifted in his chair in an insecure manner and combatively filibustered the interview. But the State of the Union host was having none of it.
As reported on DeadState early this Sunday, Tapper started out the interview by bringing up Michael Wolff’s bombshell book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, which Miller dismissed as “trash” and a “gross work of fiction.” Miller also trashed his former ally Steve Bannon who was quoted extensively in the book. Bannon has fallen out of favor with Trump after making disparaging comments about people inside the White House, comments which included Trump and his children.
Throughout the interview, Miller dodged the specifics of Tapper’s question and kept regurgitating White House talking points. After about 12 minutes, Tapper had enough and cut Miller off.
“I get it,” Tapper said. “There is one viewer that you care about right now and you’re being obsequious, you’re being a factotum in order to please him. And I think I’ve wasted enough of my viewers’ time. Thank you.”
As also reported by DeadState this Sunday, even panelists on Fox News agreed that Miller’s CNN appearance was a disaster.
