Jake Tapper Cuts Off Stephen Miller After Deeply Strange Interview

Trump CNN’s Jake Tapper ‘destroyed’ in Miller interview

Members of the Trump administration and Republican lawmakers flooded the airwaves on Sunday to vouch for the president's intellectual bona fides and to attack Wolff.

After excerpts from the book leaked early last week, the White House decried it as pure "fiction", but the president reserved his fiercest anger for Bannon, who was pushed from the White House in August but - over the objection of many aides - remained in Trump's orbit, with the two men speaking by phone occasionally.

Bannon said he regretted that his "delay in responding to the inaccurate reporting regarding Don Jr has diverted attention" from Trump's achievement.

Tapper talked to Miller about Michael Wolff's new book, Fire and Fury, and about former Trump strategist Steve Bannon's role in the book.

During the interview, Miller characterized the new book about the Trump administration, "Fire and Fury, " which was released January 5, as "a work of very poorly written fiction".

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.

Wallace noted that the Central Intelligence Agency does psychological profiles of world leaders and asked what he would say about "a world leader who refers to himself as 'a very stable genius, '" as Trump did in a tweet Saturday. "And I think I have wasted enough of our viewer's time", the long time host told Miller.

South Carolina's unemployment rate 4 percent in November
Meanwhile, statewide unemployment also fell in November, to 4.6 percent from 4.9 percent a month earlier. The Colorado Department of Labor and Employment released the new figures on Friday.

Mr. Tapper accused Mr. Miller of attempting to "filibuster" and sent the show to a commercial break over Mr. Miller's protestations.

"Jake Tapper of Fake News CNN just got destroyed in his interview with Stephen Miller of the Trump Administration", the president tweeted. "Watch the hatred and unfairness of this CNN flunky!" he posted. The congressman added regarding Bannon's statement "and especially with so much of the book's veracity in question, it is helpful to have the added background".

Asked by Mr Todd if he omitted positive anecdotes about the President from his book, the author replied: "If I left out anything, it's probably stuff that was even more damning".

Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, also defended Trump's stability, saying "he didn't become the President by accident".

"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".

The president also referred to Wolff's book as a "Fake Book" written by a "totally discredited author" in a separate tweet.
