'Fire and Fury' Is 'Grotesque' and 'Fiction': Stephen Miller

'Fire and Fury' Is 'Grotesque' and 'Fiction': Stephen Miller

At one point, Tapper urged Miller to "settle down, calm down" and accused him of performing to please Trump, whom he referred to as Miller's "one viewer".

While senior White House adviser Stephen Miller's Sunday appearance on CNN's State of the Union seemed pretty unhinged for those just tuning in, it followed what's been a successful formula for him in the past: get into a shouting match with a "fake news" journalist, horrify the mainstream press, and earn praise from the White House and right-wing media. Beyond his reputation for not being careful with the facts, Wolff admitted he said whatever he needed to say to gain the trust of White House officials, which makes you wonder, if he so thoroughly deceived them, how much is he deceiving us?

Tapper had been asking questions about Trump's fitness, and queried Miller about a weekend tweet in which Trump wrote that he was a "very stable genius".

The interview became so contentious that Tapper cut the interview short, claiming Miller was "wasting his viewers' time". Miller initially brought up Trump's statement on Bannon's quotes in the book, in which he said that "Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my Presidency".

Carlson, however, did reference a video which is known to exist of Miller and Tapper sparring after the segment ended during the commercial break, partial transcripts of which were leaked online Monday.

Tapper interrupted Miller there, saying, "I'm sure he's watching and he's happy that you said that".

Miller would not leave voluntarily after the segment and instead had to be escorted off the CNN set by security, reported CBS News and Business Insider.

After a few more exchanges like this, Tapper chose to cut Miller off for good. "After refusing to leave, he was escorted out by security".
