CNN Cuts Off White House Senior Adviser Stephen Miller, Moves to Commercial

Tapper pressed Miller in particular about the book's characterization of a June 2016 meeting with Kremlin-linked figures at Trump Tower in which the president's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and son Donald Trump Jr. took part.

"I get it. There is one viewer that you care about right now", Tapper snapped at Miller toward the end.

Tapper grew exhausted of Miller repeating pro-Trump and anti-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'.

CNN host Jake Tapper and senior White House policy adviser Stephen Miller spar on "State of the Union" - ending with Miller's mic being cut.

Tapper then called Miller "obsequious, ' saying he "wasted enough of our viewers" time" and that there was 'only one viewer he was concerned about'.

Wolff has said the book was based on White House access, conversations with Trump and interviews with senior staffers, including Bannon.

Wolff told NBC News' "Meet the Press" that he did not violate off-the-record agreements with the Trump aides.

Pressing Miller on the latter topic, Tapper rattled off several issues Bannon had a hand in, such as the Muslim travel ban and the decisions to pull out of the Paris climate accord and the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

Asked about Trump's mental state, Miller said flatly that "no one questions the stability of the president". Miller also went on to say it was "unfortunate that Steve would make these grotesque comments, so out of touch with reality".

Miller also spent a huge chunk of the interview blasting CNN and claiming that the network could not be relied upon because its coverage is often critical of Trump.

Miller, a Duke graduate, had previously battled CNN's Jim Acosta over President Trump's immigration policy.

Miller praised Trump extensively, saying the "reality" is that the President is a political genius and that Trump's Twitter missive declaring himself a "very stable genius" did not undermine the claim.

What a guy, that Stephen Miller.

The very public apology was just the latest fallout from the release of "Fire and Fury", in which Wolff claims, after having had access to the West Wing during the first months of the Trump administration, that numerous president's top aides and confidants consider him paranoid, inept and even unfit to hold office. We've covered Miller a bit around here the past year. In 2002, he showed signs of his future calling, writing an op-ed in a local Santa Monica newspaper called "Political Correctness Out of Control".
