Senior White House strategist Stephen Miller unloaded on CNN earlier this week following a disastrous interview with anchor Jake Tapper; saying the news network has been “extraordinarily biased, extraordinarily unfair” to President Trump and those closest to him.
Miller was speaking with Fox News when he was asked to comment on a recent interview where host Jake Tapper urged Miller to “settle down” before cutting off his microphone; accusing the top Trump advisor of “wasting his viewers’ time.”
Miller fired-back at Tapper after he suggested the President’s mental health was “deteriorating,” saying the President was a “political genius” who managed to pull off one of the greatest political upsets in American political history.
“CNN has been extraordinarily biased, extraordinarily unfair to the president, and is not giving their viewers honest information,” said Miller.
The President expressed his support for Miller’s battle with Tapper on social media just hours after the infamous interview, saying “Jake Tapper of Fake News CNN just got destroyed in his interview with Stephen Miller of the Trump administration.”
“Watch the hatred and unfairness of this CNN flunky!” he added.

FIREWORKS: CNN’s Jake Tapper Throws PUBLIC TANTRUM on Live TV
CNN anchor Jake Tapper threw a public temper tantrum on live television over the weekend, screaming at senior Trump advisor Stephen Miller before cutting off his microphone and having security guards remove him from the premises.
Tapper and Miller were sparring over “grotesque” allegations in Michael Wolff’s recent book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” most of which focused on the President’s “mental stability.”
“The book is best understood as a work of very poorly written fiction,” Miller said; adding that President Trump was a “political genius” who managed to deliver one of the greatest political upsets in American history.
“You can be as condescending as you want. It’s part of your MO,” the Trump advisor added.
Tapper fired-back, demanding Miller “settle down” and “calm down” before cutting off his microphone and demanding he be removed from the studio.
“I think the viewers right now can ascertain who is being hysterical,” Tapper said.
