Trump Staffer Stephen Miller Was Just Booted Off CNN After A Live On The Air Meltdown



White House adviser Stephen Miller went on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday with Jake Tapper and it did not go well. Tapper mentioned claims made by Michael Wolff in his book “Fire and Fury” which depict the White House as chaotic and the leader as less than capable of doing his job.

The interview started off well enough with Miller dismissing Steve Bannon’s account of a Trump Tower meeting between Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort, and other officials including a Russian lawyer. Bannon called this meeting treasonous. Additionally, according to Wolff, there’s zero chance this meeting didn’t involve moving the officials to the 26th floor to meet with Donald Trump.

Miller responded by discrediting Bannon, equating him to a jealous former friend who will do anything to gain attention while discrediting his former boss. At first, Miller comes off as calm, measured, and willing to discuss anything involving the Trump administration.

Miller then went on to attack Wolff’s claims of Trump’s erratic behavior. He quickly took the position–and for someone in his role rightly so–of someone who supports his leader and doesn’t think Trump’s fitness for his role should be in question. In fact, he called Trump a political genius.

That might be going a bit far, don’t you think?

Next, Miller’s attack mode shifts to CNN, where he indicts the network for spreading the lies. Grab your popcorn because this is where things become good.

Tapper, who always does a great job getting to the heart of the matter, challenged Miller with common sense counterpoints such as Wolff interviewing White House staff members for some of the book’s supporting points. As the argument intensifies, Miller sways back and forth with anger while Tapper is ready to punt Miller off the set, who continually interrupts him and goes on long diatribes about why Trump is tapping into the human interest stories CNN ignores, even repeating some of his points multiple times.

After a heated exchange, Tapper ended the interview on live TV stating Miller was only interested in pleasing his boss. It became so bad CNN security had to escort Miller out of the building after being asked to leave multiple times, according to The Hill.

Here’s the thing, when you work for the White House, your actions become representative of the office you serve. And Miller losing his cool lends more credence to Wolff’s claims of an unstable environment permeating the White House. His actions ran counterpoint to his words, which is consistent with this administration.
