Jake Tapper Cuts Off Stephen Miller After Deeply Strange Interview

Jake Tapper Cuts Off Stephen Miller After Deeply Strange Interview

During an interview with Stephen Miller on Sunday morning, CNN's Jake Tapper told Donald Trump's adviser that he was wasting his viewers' time and abruptly ended the segment while Miller was still talking.

Miller on CNN's "State of the Union" said former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, who Wolff quoted criticizing Donald Trump Jr. for meeting with a Russian lawyer in June 2016, was "vindictive" and "out of touch with reality".

Bannon claimed in his statement that the comments in the book were aimed not at Trump or his family but at Paul Manafort - Trump's former campaign chairman, who was sacked and is facing charges as part of special counsel Robert S. Muller's Russia investigation - who, Bannon said, should have known how the Russians - whom he called "duplicitous, cunning and not our friends" - operate.

Miller said Tapper was being "condescending" and described CNN's coverage of the Trump administration as "hysterical" and "toxic" when Tapper asked about whether Trump was mentally fit to serve in the White House.

Trump responds to Michael Wolff's book about his campaign and the early days of his presidency: "I consider it a work of fiction".

Bannon referred to a 2016 meeting between Donald Trump jnr and a Russian Federation lawyer at Trump Tower as "treasonous" and suggested that it was highly likely that Trump jnr told his father about the meeting.

Steve Bannon, the former top aide with whom President Donald Trump cut ties last week, sought Sunday to explain and express "regret" for what he said were comments misconstrued in a new book as attacks on Trump's son. Nikki Haley, the us ambassador to the United Nations, also defended Trump's stability and said, "he didn't become the president by accident".

That puts Cook in good company. "As we approach our holiday season, we expect it to be our biggest quarter ever". Cook's earnings increase came largely from a boost in incentive pay; he earned $5.4 million a year ago .

"Steven, I'm trying to get to the issue of the president's fitness", Tapper said.

"That was a huge embarrassment for your network", Miller said of the incident. In fact, he declared that Tapper got "destroyed" by his adviser.

He repeatedly called Trump a "political genius" and defended a Twitter rant in which the president claimed to be a "very stable genius".

'The president's tweets absolutely reaffirm the plainspoken truth: A self-made billionaire revolutionized reality TV and tapped into something magical that is happening in the hearts of this country, ' Miller said.

Those close to Bannon said that as the controversy unfolded, he seemed eager to find a way to try to fix his relationship with the president.

"Stephen, settle down, settle down, calm down", Tapper said. That word means subservient or servile, and Tapper said, "there's one viewer that you care about right now..."
