W.H. Adviser Has Heated Exchange With CNN Host During Latest Interview
On Sunday, White House adviser Stephen Miller appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
During a commercial break, Miller had a heated exchange with CNN host Jake Tapper.
“Jake, what I care about is having three minutes to tell the truth about the president of the United States,” Miller said.
“You had plenty of time. I let you give like a three-minute filibuster at the very top,” Tapper responded.
“You gave me two minutes. You should be ashamed of yourself. Honestly,” Miller fired back.
“This is the reason they don’t put you out on TV. OK? This is the reason… You spent the entire interview attacking CNN ... OK, so don’t act all offended,” Tapper said.
“I’m not acting offended. I am offended. I’m offended by you and I’m offended by your network,” Miller stated.
Before the commercial break, Miller told Tapper, “Not only do I think they help it, but I think in the toxic environment that you've created here and CNN and cable news, which is a real crisis of legitimacy for your network.”
“I get it. There’s one viewer that you care about right now and you're being obsequious and you’re being a factotum in order to please him, OK. And I think I’ve wasted enough of my viewers’ time. Thank you, Stephen,” Tapper responded.
President Trump addressed the interview in a tweet on Sunday, in which he wrote, “Jake Tapper of Fake News CNN just got destroyed in his interview with Stephen Miller of the Trump Administration. Watch the hatred and unfairness of this CNN flunky!”
