President Donald Trump’s senior policy advisor Stephen Miller reportedly had to be escorted by security from CNN’s studios in Washington, DC, after his trainwreck interview with Jake Tapper on Sunday. Tapper cut Miller’s interview short after he started attacking the network’s credibility, labeling them ‘fake news’.
Tapper accused Miller of wasting his audience’s time to please the president. Apparently after Miller was taken off air, he refused to leave the studios, a CNN source told CBS.’The segment was over and Mr. Miller was politely asked to leave the set multiple times. After refusing to leave, he was escorted out by security,’ the source said.
In a series of tweets on Sunday, Matt Dornic, a network spokesman, responded to a tweet a CBS reporter published about the story, saying ‘This is not a statement from CNN we did not issue a statement’.
‘You need to correct or delete this tweet. I don’t know your source. But we did not issue any such statement.’
President Trump applauded Miller’s performance in a tweet on Sunday.
‘Jake Tapper of Fake News CNN just got destroyed in his interview with Stephen Miller of the Trump Administration,’ Trump wrote. ‘Watch the hatred and unfairness of this CNN flunky!’
Tapper grew tired of Miller repeating pro-Trump and anti-Stephen Bannon talking points and called the aide’s constant interruptions ‘hysterical,’ as he cut the interview short by announcing, ‘I think I’ve wasted enough of my viewers’ time.’
