White House policy advisor Stephen Miller was cut off during his interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper on Sunday after an intense back-and-forth led to Tapper ending the segment. Now CNN claims that they had to escort Miller out of the building.
A CNN official told the Washington Examiner that Miller was supposedly asked “politely” to leave the set of “State of the Union” multiple times, but he ignored CNN’s requests. In response, the network called security to escort him out.
The interview started out cordially but quickly turned south when Miller started hammering CNN, which led to an intense exchange that lasted several minutes between Miller and Tapper.
President Donald Trump was quick to praise Miller for the interview, tweeting: “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!”
This is not the first time that Miller has gotten into it with CNN. In August, Miller took on CNN’s Jim Acosta during a White House press conference while speaking on immigration, pointing out his “cosmopolitan bias” and hammering Acosta for his lack of knowledge on the subject.
