Jake Tapper cuts off contentious interview with Trump aide Stephen Miller

Former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon issued a lengthy apology to Donald Trump and his family as several of the president's allies spoke out against an explosive new book that raised doubts about the former real estate developer's fitness for office.

During the heated exchange, Tapper said to Miller, in a reference to Trump, "There's one viewer that you care about right now and you're being obsequious".

"Jake Tapper of Fake News CNN just got destroyed in his interview with Stephen Miller of the Trump Administration".

"I think we have wasted enough of my viewers' time", Tapper said, ending the interview. The interview became so contentious that Tapper cut the interview short and said Miller was wasting his viewers' time.

When Tapper asked questions, Miller often attacked CNN as running "24/7 with salacious coverage" of the Trump administration.

"Your network has been going 24-7 with all of the salacious coverage, and I know that it brings a lot of you guys a lot of joy to try to stick the knife in", Miller said of CNN's coverage of "Fire and Fury", which was written by Michael Wolff.

Despite having "no knowledge" of the meeting, Miller said he was certain all of the allegations in Wolff's book are "a pure work of fiction" and "nothing but a pile of trash through and through". "Watch the hatred and unfairness of this CNN flunky!"

Shortly after, Trump tweeted his approval of Miller's appearance.

As Tapper tried to move on to specific questions, like the president's recent comments about Steve Bannon, Miller interrupted to praise Trump for everything that he accomplished in the 2016 election. For Miller, Trump is a "self-made billionaire, who revolutionized reality TV, and who has changed the course of our politics".

"We talk about some of the most serious matters facing America and the world, complex issues, the president is engaged, he understands the complexity, he asks really hard questions of our team at CIA", Pompeo said on "Fox News Sunday".

A longtime adviser for Alabama Senator and now Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Miller was often seen on the campaign trail as a "warm-up act" for Trump. "I am the only person to date to conduct a global effort to preach the message of Trump and Trumpism; and remain ready to stand in the breach for this president's efforts to make America great again". He grew up in Santa Monica, California and both of his parents are Democrats. While at Santa Monica High School, he reached out to conservative radio host Larry Elder to appear on his show to complain about his high school. The essay was filled with complaints about his high school.
